The URL from comment #1 no longer works, but YouTube videos in HD work correctly for me, though slowly.

A change in vimeo broke vimeo content for Gnash, namely that it now loads an AVM2 movie into an SWF5 movie.

It doesn't have anything to do with YouTube HD, though, so doesn't belong on this bug report.

I'm using Firefox 3.0.13 with Gnash 0.8.5 on Ubuntu 2.6.28-13-generic #45-Ubuntu
a recent upgrade in either Firefox or Gnash has broken some flash content -- YouTube seems to work but Vimeo no longer does

Actually that one doesn't work well for me; I get corrupt picture data if I click on the 'HD' button.

Works fine for me, but I've no idea if it's what you mean or not.

Youtube HD videos doesn't work with latest trunk compiled with ./configure --enable-avm2. Sound keeps playing sometimes but video doesn't show up.

Just gotta add that well other video sites too doesn't work these days. Even blip.tv is broken. Since video playback is what like 90% of the flash users use flash for ---> Shouldn't getting videos to play be a 1st priority? I think getting that just videos working would allow a clear majority of people to ditch adobes plugin once and for all. Keep up the good work! :)
