go to medibuntu.org

Follow their directions for installing their repository.

Then, type this:

>sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras w64codecs

**If you have a 32-bit processor replace the 64 with 32.

You may have to do this as well. I'm not sure you need it in 9.04, but I had to for 9.10

# Howto fix Flash on Ubuntu 9.10
If you are not able to click on flash (e.g. on Youtube), here is how to fix this known bug (works for both 32-bit and 64-bit):
1. Press ALT+F2 and enter:
gksudo gedit /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer
2. Add the following line before the last line in the file:
export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
3. Save and restart Firefox, or if this doesn't fix it, try restarting Ubuntu.

What i did is go to Applications->Ubuntu software center and search for flash and install the "Adobe Flash plugin".

Just to make sure, close firefox while its installing.
