Gnash, which OLPC uses by default, is terrible in that version of the OS.
Even if you installed the official Flash plugin from Adobe, it is too much
overhead for the XO to handle. The best Youtube support I have seen on the
XO is in debxo using totem plugins (written in C afaict and directly playing
the video file through RSS magic)

case it will be most welcome, and will greatly ease the deployment of Sugar
