View Full Version : [ubuntu] Media player, plays only ads

June 6th, 2008, 05:33 AM
I have installed the flashplayer and can play most of you tube, but "60 minutes news show" and some other sites will only play those pesky ads that run prior to the video. When it comes to play the video itself it says "transferring data from flash quantserve.com" on the bottom panel.- but it never plays the video. I can run the videos no problem on my yuk spit %^$# XP desktop and my friend who also runs a linux platform ( not ubuntu)says she has no problem bringing up the 60 minutes news show- without those commercials.

Thanks for any help- appreciated.
