Has anyone used this Free Software solution to the Flash problem?


GNOME's Totem Movie Player now includes a plugin for searching and playing
YouTube videos without leaving the player, and without Flash. It's installed
by default in Ubuntu 8.04, and works fabulously!

Totem's YouTube plugin

The YouTube plugin needs to be activated before you can use it. In Totem's
Edit menu, select Plugins to open the Configure Plugins dialog. Here, enable
the YouTube plugin. Close the dialog.

The YouTube browser runs in Totem's sidebar. If the sidebar isn't open,
enable it by selecting View->Sidebar. Click the sidebar's drop-down box to
select the YouTube view.
