Hi , I wonder if anyone can help me
I can view video content from most websites ( BBC ,ITV etc ) but when I try to play video on the WSB site ( www.worldsbk.com/pubb-EN/index.php ) nothing happens. I have looked for similar threads on Ubuntu forums , and tried various things.
I have the none free flash plugin installed
I am obviously missing a plugin or something , but can't work out what it is

Well it's good to hear from someone with good taste I use the Mplayer mozilla plugin that's in synaptic. It plays the video's fine though sometimes you have to choose from the list on the box that pops up rather than the link provided if that makes sense.
Haga for the championship!!

Thanks Ian , Installed the Mozilla Mplayer plugin , No difference , If I try to open it with Movie plater I get an error message " You might not have permission to opne the file"
I can play the video with my Visat laptop no problem

My money is on Haga too

I assume you have all the relevant codecs installed?
Here is a guide in case.
