[ale] Flash player 10 and CNN.com videos



IIRC, there are some CNN.com gurus that frequent ALE, if so I'd like
to point out an issue on CNN.com (as well as seek a work around for
the problem from anyone else).

When attempting to watch videos on CNN.com with the latest Adobe Flash
player v10, I receive the following notice:

                  This CNN.com feature is optimized for Adobe Flash
Player version 8 or higher.
                                            You are currently using
Flash Player 10


It seems that main.js::CNN_FlashDetect()  needs an update.   In the
meantime, does anyone know of a way to override this?   Is it possible
to fool sites into thinking Flash player is really version 9 (ala
UserAgent overrides)?

Thx,
