or
READ the guide on Mjmwired's page
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f17.html
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...f17.html#flash

PS. mjm uses "sudo"
"sudo" is NOT set up on fedora by default !!!

Fedora uses "su" and "su -" by default

If you wish to use it YOU need to set that up

but this is the 32 bit flash i do believe
the 64 bit flash DOSE work fine on a 64 bit OS
BUT
You have to manually change things and set up YOUR system for using that

If you're brand-new to Fedora, you may want to use easyLife. It'll give you all the codecs and extra software you need that isn't provided by Fedora.

It won't really teach you anything, it does all the work for you, but it's a quick solution while you get oriented.

Thank you!!

Thank you so much for that tip!! I am brand new to Linux and just finished installing Fedora 17 on my laptop this evening. Your tip about easyLife has saved me many hours of work and probably frustration trying to figure out how to add the features I wanted. I just went down the list of things easylife had and let it do all the hard work.

No, not 'obviously'....we only know what you TELL US. You didn't say you tried to install it, and if you did, what error(s)/problem(s) you had.

...and if the plugin WAS installed, it would be working. If you downloaded the Flash player from the link provided, there is a readme.txt file in it, which has the installation instructions. Did you read/follow them? What problems did you encounter?

A friend had the same problem. After making sure everything was correct, I spent two hours with Google before I came across a post. Can't remember the link but I remember:
Code:
sudo yum remove nswrapperplugin
. Also I noticed YT is changing the video format to webm although the video shows on the page as flash. Could also be a problem.
