I managed to get BBC video to play with w32codecs, none of the other
I installed Gutsy AMD64 and got ff32-3in1-6.tar.gz from one of the
ubuntu forums. This installs the w32codecs, firefox32, flash and java.
Every site (I did not even try ninemsn) works perfectly. No fiddling or
woes. The install script looks fine. apt-get libs n stuff.
The w64codecs on mplayer play .avi .mp3 .mpeg .wmv all in 64bit mode.
The 64 flash (gnash) did nothing.
