I'm using getgnash 0.8.10-1~squeeze debian packages with Debian Squeeze (and
thuse Iceweasel 3.5.16), and I'm also using IPv6 opt-in DNS for youtube (which
means I get its IPv6 addresses that the rest of the world doesn't get by
default yet):

# host has address has address has address has address has IPv6 address 2a00:1450:4001:c01::88

When using gnash, I get initial youtube picture with play button on the middle
of it, but if I click it I get on the top "YouTube   An error occurred, please
try again later error."
It happens with any movie on

It doesn't work until I block IPv6 to youtube, for example:
ip6tables -A OUTPUT -d 2a00:1450:4001:c01::/64 -j REJECT

After that, clicking on "play" works normally and movie plays. 

nonfree adobe flash plugin works ok over IPv6, and tcpdump confirms it uses
IPv6 connection.

As 6.6.2012 is IPv6 day (see, google youtube
(and lots of others) will permanently publish their IPv6 records on that day
-- which means that anybody having IPv6 and using gnash would break on that
day. So it would be nice if it could be fixed before...
