If there were alternatives, or at least alternative flash players...
Gnash, according to some document on their website, doesn't even try to
sync audio and video, rather it's impossible by design.
Both gnash and lightspark seem to focus on making youtube work and
fail more often than not. Needless to say that there's more to flash
than youtube. The flash situation is still horrible, there are no
alternative players.
