Most of the problem sites you cite are correlated to the presence of
codecs as opposed to any inherent problem with the browser itself.
What version of Gnash are you running? (There is a more recent one
that will be shipped with the G1G1 machines.) What version of the
browser itself? (There are many changes and improvements since 624.)
Did you load Watch&Listen, which is a dedicated media player and will
be on the G1G1 builds? Did you try downloading any of the proprietary
codecs, such as Adobe Flash or the Real codecs?
