  I'd have till go look for it, I stumbled across it doing a blog search
for Gnash a month or so ago.

  Swfdec was announced dead over 1.5 years ago, and doesn't handle as
many sites as Gnash does. If it's dead and unmaintained, why ship it ?
Gnash is still under active development, the next release comes out in a
few weeks.

  Now that Gnash and Lightspark work together, swf v10 works too. So the
combo gives us all a reasonably functional and free flash player. Even
without Lightspark assistance, Gnash handles 100% of YouTube videos now.
