You can get the plugin for viewing flash/shockwave clips in your browser from macromedia website.

As far as the app to create them, I don't think it is available for linux.

ok I got Flash installed, but there is no sound. I get sound when i get an instant message though, so i know it doesnt have anything to do with my soundcard/speakers.

I've flash installed and I get sound without any problems. I use myself Mozilla browser:

In my opinion, it's the best Linux browser so far. I even use it myself in some M$ machines that from time to time, I unfortunately need to use due wine complications and I prefire it then IE.

Flash Plugin to mozilla browser you get here:

If I'd you, I would give Mozilla a shot

Good luck
