Hi,
The most common problem is what the message says:
1. You don't have flash installed or
2. javascript is turned off
How do you know that flash is correctly installed? Does it work on other sites?
Try http://www.adobe.com
Does it display correctly?
cheers,
jdk

Use mozilla firefox for adobe Flash content. While konquerorer is built using a mozilla base, it just doesn't seem to handle the proprietary formats like firefox does.

Sorry to disagree but I have no difficulty with konqueror and Flash (proprietary version). Everything works correctly on youtube and the other flash sites I've visited.

From the OP's error messages I would suspect that flash has not been installed correctly.
Cheers,

I had this problem too... solved it by downgrading flashplayer to version 9.
Flashplayer 9 can be downloaded from http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...p9_archive.zip
To install flash 9 for konqueror only (keeping flash 10 for Mozilla/Iceweasel or whatever where it works properly), all that is necessary is to extract the libflashplayer.so file from the archive, put it in a directory in your ~home folder and set konqueror plugin to point to it instead of the usual /lib/Mozilla/plugins directory.
