OK, some more info, and I'll stop bombarding the list.

I uninstalled www/linux-flashplugin9 and reinstall www/linux-flashplugin7
installed the plugin as root with

nspluginwrapper -i /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so

Checked video.google.com, works OK (the usual slight video / sound async) : 

Youtube works great (well, 'as designed' <G>) too .

CNN doesn't work because they want me to have flash => 8 . Other than that, it 
seems fine.

I'm sticking to flash7 for now, running on native ffox - it means some fewer 
ports, less duplication, and Java 1.5 in the browser, from the Diablo project...

/me happy :)
