comment Flash player alternative for firefox
If watching videos is your main concern there are different solutions available to bypass flash. E.g. this userscript for greaseoneky (a popular Firefox extension) that let's you play videos on youtube, dailymotion and other sites via Totem/VLC. Please see my answer here for options (in this case concerning youtube, specifically).

comment How can I fix this tearing in fullscreen video with Radeon card?
To help you we need to know if you are using the open-source radeon drivers or the ones provieded by AMD (FGLRX). Did you install any additional graphics drivers after setting up your new system? If so then please follow darent's answer to enable "tear free" video from the AMD Catalyst settings.

This is a workaround more than a solution but you could use livestreamer to stream the broadcasts instead. Installation instructions.

comment How can I have an application automatically display on all desktops under openbox?
@user216838 Looks almost identical to the rule I edited my answer with (which worked for me). Please try my version out and see if it works for you. (Don't forget to reconfigure openbox! That's what I always forget.) If everything works the window should be both on top and follow you around to all other desktops.

comment How can I have an application automatically display on all desktops under openbox?
@user216838 I think your comment got cut off there. I suspect it's not working for you? Don't worry, I installed the extensions and found a matching rule that works for me. I will edit my question with the updated rule. Please check if it's working for you.
