Question SUSE Linux videos don't work


Hi,
I'm using SUSE 10.0. FireFox does not play videos.
For example, on the FoxNews.com site, there are news videos. I can hear the sound but not see the video. I tried replacing the libflashplayer.so but this didn't work. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I would say your first problem is that you went to Foxnews.com ;-)

Did you get Flash 9 or are you using the system installed 7? 9 should have no problems.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I downloaded version 9 and that is the .so that I copied everywhere that had the library. Still no luck.
By the way, FoxNews is not the only site, just an example.
