It will get worse soon. Adobe refuses to update flash for linux, we may not be able to watch anything in a year or so.

Not sure what the solution is. Unless HTML5 is fixed and/or content providers start to use a different solution, we may not be able to use linux for entertainment. Solaris is already locked out by the Adobe monopoly.

After some research I discovered that because adobe went to google to avoid fixing the issues with the netscape api that it seems like we may be forced into using chrome because it ships with a built in flash player and it seems like that will be our only option unless we get gnash to fully support flash so that we can use gnash as a flash plug-in replacement it just seems like gnash has lots of work ahead in order for that to happen I wonder if we can intergrate flash into chromium like it is on chrome because I really hate using closed source software & I wont ever revert back to windows or mac os ever as long as it can be avoided
