I succeeded to have a working Flash with FFADO doing it this way: - I installed the flash non-free package and manually replaced the plugin with the latest beta (10) and it now works with FFADO and Youtube via the jack-alsa plugin...

For what its worth

Yip. I know everything I know about linux not because someone told me, or because I am simply a genius. Got it the hard way. Trail and error, and I am now the richer for it. Nothing much I cannot get going on my systems now. What a feeling...

Sad isn't It?

I usual not one to bash but for crying out loud has Windows made it that incredibly simple to use that a mere lack of patience would drive someone back to the dark side? I mean like back in the days of Windows 98, there was a "grab the bar and grit your teeth" approach to at lot of mutlimedia things you did. Windows NT4 NEVER found drivers for video cards, Windows XP with it constant updates, the viruses, the spyware, The useless malware that comes with the OS, lack of user support from microsoft or the "other" windows users, cracks hacks, holes, security, junk junk.....(sigh)....I don't care what the future holds I"M STICKIN' WiTH LINUX!!!! There is freedom beyond the dark side!! My advice to markf is to check more than one forum, use Google & by all means try try again...

Yes, once again the flash plugin non-free package is not working out of the box :(. If you see that as a reason for going back to Windows, it's up to you, but I'd rather try this: Andy's got the clue (at least it's worked for me in two different desktops) in the last post of this thread: In a line: sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/ /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/ And voilà Pablo
