Thanks, but not quite.
Instead of getting a screen telling me to load flash-player, I just get
an empty light-blue screen, and nothing happens.

I have been testing with CNN news, which is the application I really
want to use flash with. There, I get the above behaviour with all video

give the blue screen result. I will assume that the ones that play are
something other than flash.

Any further thoughts on what I may have missed?
