well... i think its a political question. install a binary or not ?

if you dont want binaries. use swfdec which is the default for debian.
however i couldnt even open youtube videos. iE nothing worked. 

so i decided to install a binary from adobe.


this is an archive with just an .so ... put it into

(i am using iceweasel too)
use flashblock plugin, and its ok, because you control, which flash
components you want to see, and which not.

its even possible to add a native jack output to flash.
git clone git://repo.or.cz/libflashsupport-jack.git 

however it doesnt behave nicely when jack is not active, and it still
sometimes seems to crash.
