This is answered on page 11 of: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=10598&page=11 .

Sorry it's not exactly step-by-step.

The wget command is used in the instructions on page 1 of that thread. This command is not included in OS2008HE by default and would have to be installed. It takes up a huge chunk of space in your file system, and there is always an alternative way of getting the download that you need. For installing Flash 9, you can go to
http://nmacleod.com/nokia/n800/micro...-4.2007.tar.gz on your browser, and download the file without wget.

Some people like to use wget, but my personal preference is to keep a hog like that away from my 770. (I don't have it on my N800 either.)

Thanks , already installed.
No need for ln
as one only browser's engine coming with OS2008He

Flash is very slow but worked for me.

Installed MPlayer, mYTube, KMPlayer
and none working under OS 2008He.

mYTube can save a video clip but cannot to play it.
I assume, no video codes.

Tried
apt-get update

but maemo.shmuma.ru repository
failed

Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)

..
invalid magic

and the like

All I can play is mp3, no video played, no youtube flash video saved
playable.

Any idea ?

Sorry, I am not a good person to ask, as I have different tastes from most forum members. I don't watch YouTube or other video entertainment and I don't play computer games.

Flash is used for a lot of purposes other than moving pictures. Many interactive sites make use of Flash in a non-movie context. For example, the telephony service at http://www.jajah.com/ builds its dialling widget on Flash 9. (The same widget can be used for SMS.)

Travel information and ticketing sites often use Flash. My wife and I sometimes go on vacation in the Italian Alps, and we use sites such as http://www.vcoinbus.it/ and http://www.regione.piemonte.it/cgi-b...hi/ricerca.cgi to find information about timetables and hotels. They don't work unless you have Flash 9. There are similar sites for travel in other parts of the world. Some airline sites also use Flash. It's not just movies.

Have you installed Fanoush's 48 MHz kernel modification? It makes the 770 much faster. I don't know whether that would help in displaying your video movies, but it's worth a try. It's a good way to improve the 770's performance, regardless of the Flash plugin.

The plugin can make your browser unstable if you don't have a large space allocated to swap.
