mozilla browser plug-ins...

I don't have any issues on my linux machines, but on my freebsd machine, I can't seem to find any of the plug-ins for mozilla. I'd like to get flash and shockwave support, but I am unable to find any of these plug-ins for the bsd platform.

I just checked Macromedia's site, and it doesn't appear that they make flash plugins for BSD.

Last time I installed Mozilla on BSD I used the Linux ELF compatible binary so I could install the Linux plug-ins. It seemed like there was a performance impact, but at least I could watch the Camp Chaos Napster series

cd /usr/ports
make search key=flashplugin

I don't do flash (more bad than good) but i have read that the linux plugin works better.
