ah well it kinda worked for some reason I couldn't be the root when I did it but I still have no video.... here's the whole message


Adobe Flash Player 10 will be installed in the following directory:

Mozilla installation directory = /home/linux/.mozilla

Proceed with the installation? (y/n/q): y

NOTE: Please ask your administrator to remove the xpti.dat from the
components directory of the Mozilla or Netscape browser.


Installation complete.


Perform another installation? (y/n): n


Please log out of this session and log in for the changes to take effect.


The Adobe Flash Player installation is complete.
also it's in my list of plugins for firefox but I still don't understand the need for the log out not even windows makes you do this...
