    Hi,

    I assume you have taken note of info in this guide -

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...dFormats/Flash

    No need to swear by the way.

    Cheers -

    Read the forum rules of conduct - your language is not allowed nor appreciated. As for your problem, please remember it's a volunteer forum and while everyone needs "a solution as soon as possible", it will only come in it's time.

    As for your problem:

    - did you install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package?

    Trying to download directly from Adobe would probably be, at best, an "experience".

    Does flash work now?

    If not:
    Which browser are you using?
    What is the website you are trying to watch video in flash?

    If you have an old processor that does not support sse2 then the newer flash will not work.

    In a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) copy and paste
    Code:
    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    and then post the output of that command here.

    If your cpu does not support sse2 then you may need to install an older version of flash for it to work.
