Hi All,
After little more investigation I found that the issue is with the mimetype
not with the flash plugin.
When the NP flash plugini.e., npswf.dll is installed, webkit is loading the
dll and playing the flash with if the mimetype is changed to
"application/x-shockwave-flash". This is valid mime-type for *.swf content.

But in the testcase attached for the bugid: 21649, mimetype is
And firefox is able to play even if the mimetype is
So I wanted to know if this is a valid bug on webkit or its a content
issue(invalid HTML content).
Can some please suggest us if we can raise a bug on webkit?

Btw, this is apart of debugging the bug:
