They work for me, flash, java plugin, movie playing and related seem to work well.

Umm, which program ran?  Pretty sure you can set any to install.  Sometimes
playback is separate from menu navigation, not to mention GUI.  VLC, g/xine,
g/mplayer, totem, and others are possible choices.

even remember the name.  I'd definitely avoid anything that asks you to run a
script so it can read/write random files on your machine.
