I don't see how Tor is relevant to Flash. It should just work (though it will probably be very slow).

Tor is not meant for streaming media or anything bandwidth intensive- like downloading large files.
Ordinary people are volunteering their bandwidth so others can have some degree of privacy on the net.
Like Alucard pointed out these activities will be very slow.

Thanks to both of you.
At least now I know that TOR is not meant to be used for bandwidth intensive application. Though I am just wondering if Facebook's Cityville a bandwidth intensive application?
