Konqueror does not support flash unless you DL and install the
plugin. I don't think *anything* supports flash without getting their
(somewhat proprietary) player.
There is at present no flash player that is 64-bit, on 64-bit
machines you have to use the 32-bit version.
(20 years after the DEC Alpha and we're still fighting non-64-bit
There is an open source flash player, but it doesn't support the
latest versions of flash.
Basically it's another case of a vendor (Adobe in this case) trying
to monopolize the world.
If you're trying to use youboob on mythbrowser I suspect you're
going to have problems, but I've never tried. No matter what you are
going to have to either find content that will work with the open
player or confront the Adobe EULA before you can play flash content.
