Hmm. Still not a-werkin'.
youtube-dl works perfectly for downloading YouTube, but that's not why I want Flash. I need Flash so I can finally go to people's goddamned MySpace pages and listen to their music. And see Facebook and MySpace videos. And DailyKosTV videos. And to see bands' and labels' websites, which too often show up as big grey squares on my browser, with nothing in them: too many of them are Flash-only.
The Linux version of Flash always seems to be 2-3 versions behind the Windoze version. And sites too often complain about that. So I was not going to bother with Flash at all on Linux, just run WINE instead. I've never seen a "free flash substitute" that actually worked, so I'm not bothering with those.
Also, it's nice to have two separate browsers: one with flash, and one without. I can thus use firefox.exe as my Flash/MySpace/etc browser occasionally when I need it.
