Fedora 9 Alpha comes with installed swfdec-mozilla packet as a flash
player which doensn't work. Go to fedora-desktop mailing list and read
previous posts regarding that[1][2].

You need to "yum remove swfdec-mozilla" and go to adobe site and get
rpm of flash plugins if you want flash video to work.

I have found bugs about flash and posted them to fedoa bz[3] and upstream[4].
