    Seems to be working now. For some people is might show up in this area:

    Code:
    /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin
    For me that's where I had to put the file.

    But yeah, I also have Flash control as an extension which might or might not be helping.

    in my case downloaded flash player 11.1.102.63 (174MB) its a zip that contains all plugins for all 32 and 64 bit systems with windows, mac, linux, solaris OS's

    the README file lists wich file/archive is for what plattaform, in my case /fp_11.1.102.63_archive/11_1r102_63_32bit/flashplayer11_1r102_63_linux.i386.tar.gz wich contains libflashplayer.so.

    located all files libflashplayer.so in my hard disk and replaced them with the downloaded one, requires administrator privileges to replace (sudo nautilus)

    Video is now working for me on Firefox and Chrome. Thanks for this information.

    Problems here also.

    Ubuntu 10.04 did a flash upgrade last night and this morning flash would not work for a streaming radio station. Also noticed some (but not all) youtube videos would not play. Solved with the cuyo01 solution, downgraded the libflashplayer.so file to 11.1.R102 from the adobe site. My system is 32 bit, Athlon XP.

    I managed to fix this problem with the solution in post 11 (thanks!). Next morning I came in to the living room and my son was watching Antz. I couldn't believe the problem had now shifted to mplayer and I spent five minutes fiddling with various settings before I realised it was actually A Bug's Life.

    Move libflashplayer.so to folder usr/lib/flashplugin-installer

    Worked on the chromium, firefox, seamonkey, midori
    Many thanks. After hours of searching and failed attempts, I found this and it works brilliantly in Chromium.
    However, for Firefox I had to also copy libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
    I don't know if this is because as part of my attempts to fix the problem I had previously used the Firefox Flash-Aid.

    That's because /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins is in fact the correct location, which is what Flash-Aid uses.

    Firefox will first look into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and will be redirected to /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so by a series of symbolic links, if it finds a flashplugin-alternative.so instead of libflashplayer.so, which happens if flashplugin-installer is installed.

    However, keep in mind you don't need flashplugin-installer. In fact I don't even recommend keeping it when installing flash downloaded manually from Adobe, because in the next update it will be replaced. Just remove flashplugin-installer and extract the libflashplayer.so downloaded from Adobe into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.

    Flash-Aid can do all that for you as well. Get the flash player version you need from Adobe. Extract the archive, find the tar.gz file corresponding to your architecture and copy it (don't extract it). Open Flash-Aid Advanced mode, select "Custom" in the installation option, paste the tar.gz path in the field. Click the Script tab, then Execute. Flash-Aid will remove all installed flash versions and install the one from the tar.gz file in the proper location.

    Using LovingLinux's method, with flashaid. It works. RELIEF! Now how long do we have to wait for a fix in the update? Ubuntu 11.10.
    Pray for acceptance of the HTML5 video/audio standard. Down with Adobe Flash...

    I would get a comfortable chair to wait for that fix. In fact, I think it won't be fixed. Adobe said they will provide only security patches, so I doubt they will try to fix this. Specially considering their current replies to bug reports: "we don't support Linux anymore".

    Anyway, I guess the problem might disappear with Ubuntu updates, since this is an old issue that comes and go.

    If the problem continues indefinitely, then the only viable alternative would be to Switch to Chrome when Flash Pepper comes out.

    Awesome, I quite watching the Smurfs when I was a child and certainly didn't expect them back. Hmmm, maybe they were Na'vi
