Multimedia, AV The fourth alpha release of Gnash has just been made at version 0.8.1. Gnash is a GPL'd Flash movie player and browser plugin for Firefox, Mozilla, Konqueror, and Opera. Gnash supports many SWF v7 features and ActionScript2 classes. Gnash also runs on many GNU/Linux distributions, embedded GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, non x86 processors, and 64 bit architectures. Ports to Darwin and Windows are in progress for a future release. The plugin works best with Firefox 1.0.4 or newer, and should work in any Mozilla based browser. There is also a standalone player for GNOME or KDE based desktops.

Good question. I would like to know this too.

Sadly i can't compile swfdec on my Debian Etch box (missing dependencies) so i can't test it by myself. ;)

Then install the dependencies. Hell use your bashrc and setup variables paths so the dependencies vanish.

But it needs libs which aren't available in Etch and just to test something i will not mess up my system by installing testing libs or by installing them by myself.
