I'm running Ubuntu Jaunty and I've always used Firefox, problem is that the version of Firefox I now have keeps crashing and I have to force quit it.
I've now decided to use opera for a change and it looks good but when I try to watch a Youtube clip (not tried it with anything else), the page loads ok but the actual clip box isn't there. At least it doesn't appear on screen but if I mouse over the blank space I can right-click and open it in Galeon for example, so it is there after all!
You need to install the flash plugin in order to watch youtube videos (and many other things as well). Just install the appropriate Ubuntu package for your system and off you go. I assume Opera will use the same plugin as everyone else. Check on the Opera website to see if there are any specific instructions for installing the plugin.
