Videos do not play on Firefox 4, too, also with last version of Lightspark

This happens on Dailymotion site or for embedded files, video screen remains white or we get the message from flash plugin crashed.

Does not work with Gnash (AVM2), nor with Flash Video Replacer, so for Dailymotion, very important videos site (in France and other countries), as for Html5 they work with Microsoft - http://www.dailymotion.com/html5 - there is no other solution on Linux instead of proprietary Adobe flash for the moment, I hope you'll find the solution.

summary: - Dailymotion video not playing with Chromium 6.0.472.62 and Lightspark
+ Dailymotion videos not playing with Lightspark

Using latest lightspark pulled from github today, dailymotion still does not work.

Using firefox-trunk 9.0a1 (2011-08-18) and Ubuntu 11.04 x86 with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic-pae.

This particular error is fixed in git, but now there's a download error later on.

The current git plays many, but not all, dailymotion videos. The user interface is a bit messed up. Also, the plugin seems to hang occasionally and I have to kill it.

Some pages use different Flash app than the rest. That alternative player is not yet supported. For example, http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xe9x3p_chocolate-pudding-recipe_lifestyle#hp-b-l and other videos by the user 5minFood.

Please report any other non-working video URLs to this bug.
