My naive question is, what is involved with creating an open source driver for flash for freebsd? Is it a legal issue? Or does it take more time than anyone has to give? Or is it just too difficult to do without help from Adobe?

It can even play youtube.
Does that in any way answer the question?

Yes. Obviously it's not a legal issue, as it's been done. Likewise,
it's not so difficult as to require help from Adobe, as it's been
done without such help.

As I understand it, it's mostly a case of time and effort - working
through as many different Flash files as possible, working out what
they're doing, and implementing the support for it.

To correct my previous post, I think. It was Benjamin, here, who brought up working out the information involved in interfacing to Flash.
