youtube videos wont play
I have flash installed, flash banners show up just fine but when I want to watch a video online it doesn't work. It doesn't display the youtube player but a different one. Ive tried several different video sites and I get the same thing. what's wrong here?

what version of flash are you using? make sure you've the shiny new 9.0.x release. you can add a download site as a yum repo to make it simpler to keep up to date...

It was what ever version it automaticlly installs, I did that a few days ago.

whatever version what installs? fedora doesn't install anything by default.

well we're not talking about firefox are we? we're talking about the flash player plugin...

This is not a hard question to answer if you have solved it. Firefox
It's a Java matter. Go to Firefox-Edit-Preferences-Content-Enable JavaScript-Advanced. Leave "Enable JavaScript" checked and uncheck everything in Advanced and see if that doesn't fix it. Mine was trying to move or resize the existing window and disable or replace context menus. On = youtube not working, off = youtube works (for me). 07-02-2007 07:35 PM

Is this not the infamous 64bit firefox not supporting the flash plugin, it has been documented since the advent of 64bit firefox

Uninstall the 64bit version and install the 32bit, or just use Opera

There are a lot of sites on the web that detail how to do this....
