This is possible but it would not help.

Gnash handles an increasing subset of Flash.  It is possible to make
Flash videos that work with Gnash.  I think that YouTube videos work
with Gnash now.  At least they did 8 months ago.  YouTube's use of
Flash may have changed since then.

But that doesn't solve the problem, because many sites don't work
with Gnash, so users install the non-free Adobe Flash player.

All the more reason for the GNU project to make:

1. An ogg version.
2. A flash version uploaded to youtube.

The description of the flash version *and* the content of the
video should encourage the download and use of gnash for those
who can, and an ogg player for others.

I can picture RMS looking into the camera: "Are you watching
this using the Adobe Flash player?  Your freedom is under attack!"

I doubt many if any will download and install Adobe Flash
just to see this one video.
