    Try this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge totem-mozilla
    sudo apt-get install gecko-mediaplayer
    This will remove totem plugin and install gecko-mediaplayer in it's place.


    BTW, I hope you are not complaining about Adobe Air applications, because Adobe Air use it's own flash player. Different solution needed. What exactly is your problem with flash?

    No, it doesn't have to do with Adobe Air. I cannot see any online video content since I solved the problem with Gimp. I can't see videos with Firefox or Google Chrome.

    Thanks for you patience with this.

    I have just updated the flash version. To get the new version, click "Check Update" in the extension menu, wait for the alert about the new version, then run the Wizard again.

    There is a known issue with flash 11.2 and Nvidia on youtube (and possibly other sites)

    works: unchecked + EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0
    color fail: checked + EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0
    unstable: checked + EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
    unstable: unchecked + EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1

    the checked status revers to this


    color fail refers to the inversion of red and blue colors

    This will info will be useful for your flash add addon

    Adobe has basically said they will not fix it cause they don't support linux anymore (even though they officially do for this version)

    adobe bug report ids 3097844, 3077076, and 3109467
    Laptop: ASUS A54C-NB91 (Storage: WD3200BEKT + MKNSSDCR60GB-DX); Desktop: Custom Build - Images included; rPi Server

    When I right click on a flash video, and select "settings", this settings box pops-up, but is unresponsive - I can't do anything with it, including closing! So I have to refresh the page to view the video! 11.10 x64, if that makes a difference. And yes, I have the YouTube Smurf thing going on

    Please click Flash-Aid "Help" menu, select "Generate Report" and post it here.

    If that doesn't work, then try this:

    Open /etc/adobe/mms.cfg with an editor using admin privileges.

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
    Add this line:

    Code:
    EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
    Restart Firefox.

    If that doesn't work, try to delete the flash config file:

    Code:
    sudo rm -f /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

    Re: Firefox 11 & Beyond Mega Thread

    Hi Lovinglinux,

    I'm all but sure you talked about this issue already, but I cannot find it, and cannot remember what you had said.

    I read somewhere in this thread that we should manually be updating the Flash-Aid add-on extension through the add-on manual update process. I did that, then tried to watch some Adobe flash videos, and was prompted to install Adobe Plugin 11.2.202.228.org.tar.gz. I allowed it to install and the Flash Video played.

    I then thought I would try Flash-Aid (2.2.3); and ran the Wizard mode for stable flash, and beta 32 Bit flash (11.2.202.183), and in both instances, it removed the flashplugin-installer (I assume the one above). When trying to play the flash video, I would have to install the above Adobe plugin again, to be able to watch the flash video.

    I don't remember going through this before, Flash-Aid, just looked after it.

    Can you shed some light on this?

    Thanks.
