Flash videos from youtube will not play in totem (they're supposed to be able to)

Flash videos wont play.... With the gst-bad-plugins they're supposed to work but with the gst-bad-plugins i get a datastream error. They dont play.. with gst-really-bad plugins the video plays crappily and without any audio.

Because gstreamer plugins are... well... a lot, and assuming you are on testing or unstable, install gnome-codec-installer so as to get totem to prompt you to install what is missing.
