Question Cannot look at videos in net

After installing Jaunty I am not able anymore to look at videos in net. When i click start video loading starts displaying a bar with some buttons and remains it that state, sometimes it only leaves the screen black without any messages. I did have these kind of problems with version 8.04. I have tried to look same videos.

I assume you mean Flash videos. If so, uninstall any Flash alternatives (swfdec, gnash, and so on) and then install Adobe Flash Player for Linux.

In Firefox, type about:plugins in the location field and post the results. We should be able to determine what you need to do by that.
