Downloading a Flash Player or Linux 64 Bit

Here is my question, I am new to Linux and I can not watch movies, it keeps asking me for a Flash player. I tried to install Adobe Flash but I have Linux under Mozilla FireFox. I do not know how to install it. I even went under Google Chrome and they charged me, I do not even know what i ordered. I used to be able to watch movies, not sure what happened. Can you help? Thank you. Calligirl

assuming fedora:
sudo yum -y install
sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
sudo yum -y install flash-plugin

The flashplayer plug-in consists of a single file:
Just copy that file to the ~/.mozilla/plugins folder and then restart Firefox. It should work after that.
