I'm sure if we work on it a while, we can get the sound to stop too.

It's probably a function that FN is using, that's not yet implemented in the Linux Flash player. I couldn't get CNN videos to work with the prior version, but they work now (though CNN live video still doesn't work).

Yesterday adobe released a new flash 9 version. You can download it from here (if you haven't done already) http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer9.html and see if it fixes the problem you mention.

It didn't for me; I was using the new version when I checked.

Hi,
The reason foxnews doesn't work is because they use wmode transparency on their flash scripts. This is more of a browser issue than flash, and should be fixed when ff3.0 comes out.

Also I found a way to see the live CNN videos. You need three things.

1. Install User Agent switcher
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59

2. Add to it a mac user agent string.
http://www.useragentstring.com/pages...gentstring.php
http://developer.apple.com/internet/safari/faq.html

3. Assuming you use mplayerplug-in, download the source

http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/download.php

and edit mplayerplug-in/Source/plugin-setup.cpp

In the file look for "NPError GetValue(NPPVariable variable, void *value)"

Below it find the string that has "Windows Media Player" and add Flip4Mac to the end of the string.

Then ./configure, make, and su make install.

4. To test go to CNN site using the mac string and live video should work.

Good Luck
