Actually I discovered that having lightspark installed caused gnash to break. by disabling lightspark I was able to use gnash.

I need to make a correction. When I disabled lightspark it also disabled gnash so the video I was play was actually html5. I uninstalled lightspark and I noticed that gnash was running but no video was playing. It would simply freeze upon play.

I also turned on debuging on my .gnashrc file so I am attaching the logfile.
