Hi Sandro,
Thanks for your reply and suggestion. I've made a request to to make that change, if possible and till then I'll stick to vlc plugin for the videos.

Thanks again.

Hi Anurag,
thanks for your feedback, I'm glad Gnash can help you in your everyday
web surfing.

Unfortunately the SWF based player targets
a platform which isn't going to be supported by Gnash any soon (AVM2).

YouTube developers have been nice with Gnash users in distributing a less
demanding application to those using Gnash as a flash plugin. Maybe you
could ask people to do something similar. It would be
enough to set SWF version to 8 rather than 10 as it is now, for the
simplest possible way to do that.

In any case, if VLC plugin works that's likely the best way to view those
movies as Flash-based players are intrinsically slower and consume more
CPU and memory resources than a bare media player.
