I seem to recall something about the LZX compiler doing some kind of
obfuscation on the byte code.
Maybe that's why the length of the arguments after an opcode is wrong?

The last time I tried a Laszlo generated Flash movie, there was a
simple bug, we thought in their Flash compiler, that kept anything from
working at all. That was months ago, so it's probably worth checking
again. A simple test is to run Gnash with "-v", and look for
"unimplemented" messages. The mentioned bug had to do with the length of
arguments after an opcode, which then screwed up the parsing of the rest
of the movie.
We still need to fix things so Gnash does work with GooTube, mostly so
everyone will stop asking us when it will be working. :-) Plus that'll
be other functionality that is then fully compatible with the other
player. One more big thing working, off to the next task...
Hey Don, want to do some Gnash hacking ? :-)

Hi! I'm glad to help, and look forward to Gnash supporting Flash video!
I've checked the video stuff into the OpenLaszlo subversion tree at the
lps/components/extensions/av -- low level video components
lps/components/av -- high level video user interface components
demos/youtube -- youtube demo
demos/videolibrary -- video library demo (requires Flash Media Server
test/video -- various video tests
If you want to run the YouTube player in debug mode, to see if there
are any warning messages in the debug window (and to see the
mediastream status callbacks), then you can open it with this url:
