    Cant watch flash videos

    I have a Dell Dimension 2400 (2.66ghz) and run ubuntu 8.04.

    I just installed ubuntu and went to youtube. It asked me to install 3 things so I did. (Adobe flash player 10, swfdec, and swf-gnash-plugin.) Everything installed fine, I restarted the browser clicked play on the video and NOTHING! Just black screen, tried waiting for up to an hour and no change.

    Help would be very appreciated.

    Have you tried installing the ubuntu-restricted-extras package? I believe flash and all its dependencies are included in that.

    Don't install all of them. That is the problem.

    Get FLASH-AID, an extension to remove conflicting flash plugins and install the proper version according to your browser architecture.

    Thank you for the information on Flash Aid.


    I installed it just 3 minutes ago. I can now view You Tube vids after one year of not seeing any.
