Hi guys,

when I download the last version of adobe, I still have trouble because I can't watch youtube and all kind of videos on the web, same thing to listen to web radios.

An idea?

What browser are you using? Normally the the plugin is quite easly to install. It's just a single file,, which is placed in the correct folder. Where you place it depends on the browser and how many different users need access to it.

If you are using Firefox and are the only user on your machine you just put the file here: ~/.mozilla/plugins/
If you want the plugin to be available system-wide then you could put it here (again if you're using Firefox): /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
