Macromedia Flash 7 plugin with Firefox

Reported to work with FreeBSD 6.2, 7-CURRENT and PC-BSD 1.x

New simple way to install the flash7 plugin:

portinstall linux-flashplugin7 nspluginwrapper
nspluginwrapper -i /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so

Note: This did not work, I ended up having to manually download flash 7 and copy the files into the linux-firefox plugin directory.

wget http://watters.ws/rpms/install_flash_player_7_linux.tar.gz
tar xzf install_flash_player_7_linux.tar.gz
cd install_flash_player_7_linux
cp flashplayer.xpt libflashplayer.so /usr/local/lib/linux-firefox/plugins/

After these commands are run you should be able to play flash videos in linux-firefox.
