Any error messages?
Do you use noscript?
Do you see the plugin when you type
in firefox?

Kind regards

In Scientific Linux, I found that adding Flash from Adobe's site using Firefox wasn't enough; I had to do
yum install flash-plugin
which comes from the RPMfusion repository.

Are the movies you want to watch in Adobe Flash format?

Can you provide urls for one or more of the movies in question that don't work?
