Description: gnash plugin is not working : _very_ slow refresh, no sound, no video started even on youtube (which is supported by gnash in a quiet good way).
i am using a i686 kernel, with xf86-video-ati driver up to date, R300 hardware.

Steps to reproduce:
open (for example)
Click play if gnash is configured to open as stopped
Refresh starts very slowly, no video playing... just controls/download progression
This task depends upon
