Hi Rob,

THANKS! I have been personally flat out for the last 2 months or so
with 1.75 stuff, hence my high latency.

Hopefully we'll soon see ffmpeg rpms to test this in tandem with your rpms.

Without ffmpeg, what is a good test of current gnash? What is a
reasonable expectation of what it can deliver?

Also, I've played with lightspark, which you guys are promoting as a
solution for the newer flash formats that gnash won't handle. But in
my (brief) expeiment, lightspark didn't "take" -- it didn't install
anything runnable in the plugins dir.

What's the right way of doing things? and what's a reasonable
expectation of what a lightspark+gnash install can / cannot do? I
didn't find a how-to nor a summary of the state of play...
