bout flash players and "tvolucion"
Hello there Ubuntu community members !
As a newbie, I have got heaps of questions every day, and always get the right answer from you guys !

In this country, there is a website for videos called tvolucion.com
I really can not understand why their videos can not be played using our Operating System; can only be played using either a macintosh or a windows based Pc.

Is there any tweak, trick, or anything you can suggest that I get from open source software like gnash (maybe) ?

I am not very computer literate, all I have read on the net says that this tvolucion site has to do with a flash player.

I am really looking forward to hearing from you guys !

Ps.- I am running karmic koala- netbook remix- on my acer asper one

Are you in a country that is not permitted or licensed to play flash?

No I am not.
I can watch youtube, google videos and so on with no problems at all.

The issue is only on :

I am sorry.
I cannot help at all. I always wonder how this can be myself.

I just clicked on the picture on the page and a screen opened asking me if I want to download the special plugin? I do not speak that language so I cannot say, but it had the look of plugin??
here is a screenshot
