Who likes to watch stream videos inside the flash videoplayer? Not me.That's how I got rid of it.First of all you have to install the flashblock plugin in your browser (there's a version for chromium and firefox). Other browsers, like xxxterm can be configured to obtain the same result.
today i removed adobe flash non free plugin and installed gnash which is absolutely free softwarethe youtube videos work fine which is what i want a flash player in the first place , so if the end is met by free software then we should all dump proprietary non free flash plugin completly.
So, I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.1 on my iMac G5 and I think I have Gnash installed as a Flash player. The videos on Youtube load fine even though Mozilla tells me from time to time that I need a Flash plugin, I get video image just fine but as for the sound it's all just a scratching buzzing static. Sound works well like testing and listening to music.

As my Ricoh webcam (r5u870) wasn't included in the supported webcam by the new fedora, I installed the r5u870 firmware manually, and edited the webcam in skype config to resolution 640x420 to have a nice image in video conferences.
