After installing a fresh install of Linux/Debian Lenny, and attempting to access the web with Ice Weasel, you soon discover you cannot play videos without installing Adobe Flash Player. As it turns out, this is a simple process. First, you go to Adobe's website,, and download the latest version of Flash Player for linux. Then, untar the file to a selected location. Next, copy the .so file to the following folder: usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

That is it! The next time you open Ice Weasel, you will be able to view videos.
