cant watch videos from web due to no flash player in browser

I recently installed fedora 9. The firefox browser was not supporting videos in youtube and directed me to flashplayer download page.
There were 3 formats :
1.I tried rpm format and with so called authentication the installation started but it failed telling about a bug whose details are below
2.I again tried rpm format it got installed!! by "Force Install" option but again there was a message that this installation file hane mallicious code. I dont know what to do pls help.

1.Tried .tar .gz . I decompressed it but there is nothing going on.

I cant watch videos from web PLS Help

You can download a binary installer for linux for flash from adobe website and install it as plug in for firefox. If it is not installed, usually firefox opens a dialog box asking to download flash plugin.
