Question No YouTube video when using Firefox, sound okay. Other browsers fine.


Hi. I have no video on YouTube in Firefox, it has sound though. There is no problem with other browsers.

Do you have installed Flashplayer and in which version? You can check this in "about:plugins" page.

Hi eSelix.

In about : plugins (I put in space to avoid smiley face appearing in this post)
I found
Shockwave Flash
File: libflashplayer.so
Version:
Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102

MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled
application/x-shockwave-flash Shockwave Flash swf Yes
application/futuresplash FutureSplash Player spl Yes


I also removed .mozilla but that did not solve the problem.

Hi dlcomm. 32-bit.

I am not certain, but I think this may have caused the problem: http://ubuntuguide.net/enable-transp...n-ubuntu-10-10

Update: I have just noticed that Liferea cannot play flash videos either.

Question

I have also noticed that I can no longer start the Icecat web browser (which is the GNU version of the Firefox browser).

Solved!

# Not sure if this was needed
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

There may have been more steps but these are the ones I recall.
