    I has really high hopes for this player, but for the past few releases it played exactly zero videos for me.

          When lightspark can play all youtube/vimeo/etc videos and all games, then it can be useful. Right now it's just a WIP plugin not really ready for mainstream usage. I really hope it gets there though, but we have to keep things in perspective. When that happens it will probably be called version 1.0
