I've just updated the OS/2 gnash port to the latest cvs code from today (3rd May).
With this code, gnash can now play some You Tube flash video.
Gnash is a GNU Flash movie player. Previously, it was only possible to play flash movies with proprietary software. While there are some other free flash players, none support anything beyond SWF v4. Gnash is based on GameSWF, and supports many SWF v7 features.
The OS/2 port is available from http://smedley.info/os2ports - it still suffers from some high CPU usage issues which are under investigation.
