    Unhappy youtube and other video problems 10.04

    When trying to play a video the player screen doesn't appear and the video wont play. The area remains grey. It worked well when I had 9.04 on it but not after going to 10.04. Any ideas?

    Have you installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras package?

    The Ubuntu Restricted Extras package includes flash and codecs needed to play media.

    If I dissable one or two mozila plugins randomly it will play a couple of videos then quit. Enable all and get a couple more than it quits again.

    I would check plugin compatibility if you are running a newer version of fire. Just because some add-ons will install doesn't mean they work properly.

    Is this a clean installation of 10.04 or an upgrade from 9.04 - 9.10 - 10.04?
