The latest release, 0.8.8, work file with Youtube.  You might have to remove the cookies, but that is about it.

Because of this, I believe this bug should be closed as fixed.

I have gnash 0.8.5 installed in my ubuntu 8.10.
Type gnash -V in terminal, it shows:

Build options 0.8.5

When I visit Youtube by firefox3.0, it only show black window, the video never get played.

I have the newest ffmpeg libs installed.
