I suggest watching the comments on the Adobe Flash
blog to see if they ever release a stable plugin for Linux. I'm using an older version of the plugin (9r48 - because it uses fewer resources), but it still causes Firefox to crash multiple times per day. There are also scripts that can "screen scrape" some sites (like Youtube) so you can watch the videos in a player like xine, mplayer, etc.
