That's an excellent question indeed, and that's why I find using the Package Manager the easiest and safest way to install anything.

raphtor;

If you just want it to work, open Applications->Add/Remove. Select All available applications in the Show window, then find and install Ubuntu Restricted Extras. That will install all the correct codecs and media plugins, including Java and Flash, for your system.

Cheers

actually i was just thinking in the terms that there isn't apparantly a 64 bit release version of the flash plugin for linux and requires nspluginwrapper to use on a 64 bit linux
i know firsthand because i use fedora 10 x86_64 and use nspluginwrapper

Well, actually there is... sortof. However, I do still stand corrected, as it's still an alpha pre-release. (I was sure it would be done by now.)
