And I'll note that in addition to WebM it can also do H264 (with the
usual gst codecs from the third party repo mentioned elsewhere in this
thread installed) which makes a huge difference as a huge portion of
youtube videos hasn't been converted to WebM yet (not sure how many
exactly -- are there any stats available?).
And in regard to the original question. Have you tried swfdec-mozilla?
It used to work just fine on youtube for me (but I've switched to flash
from adobe long ago enough for things to have changed...).
