Gnash is a free software and it appears to be the second entry in the FSF list of high-priority projects. It is a free replacement of Adobe Flash player and
it plays videos from YouTube. Watching YouTube videos is not equal to
supporting proprietary software.

But watching YouTube does mean support supporting the use of proprietary patent-encumbered formats, even if the software used to view such a format is free. Personally, I agree with Luis Felipe López Acevedo. Supporting fully open, non-proprietary, patent-free technologies seems like the better stance to take.
