    There is gnashplayer, but my experience is that it is does not work well with new versions of flash videos.

    I think some of the open source alternatives can play mp3, but due to patents, I think they are not 'free' in the meaning, that they can be distributed without restrictions in all countries.

    Ogg is totally free.

    If all you want is youtube, don't they have an HTML5 option on the site?

    You might also try this: http://mozilla.github.io/shumway/
    Though it's still beta.
