    Hi:

    Welcome to Ubuntu !

    Start by opening up the Software Center and than follow these instructions

    Than use the terminal to do the rest to get flash player installed:

    Chromium is open source and sometimes can be a little buggy, for the official release of Google Chrome you could go to https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/ and download and run the .deb file for either 32 bit or 64 bit, depending on your installation. These official releases already include most of the codecs used for online media such as YouTube.

    The other thing you could do is install Chrome instead of Chromium. Chrome has a Flash player built in. You'll have to get it from Google.

    I would suggest Chrome rather than Chromium as Adobe no-longer support Flash on Linux. Chrome has a later flash player built in.

    Or you can just watch youtube in HTML5 instead of using flash, HTML5 is the near future of the web.

    No, that's not true.

    See this link: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashpla...s/roadmap.html

    And note this bit: "Adobe will continue to provide security updates to non-Pepper distributions of Flash Player 11.2 on Linux for five years from its release."

    V11.2 was released about a year ago, so flashplayer will be supported for another four years on Linux.
    You won't get new releases, 11.3 and above, so no new features, but you will have a secure (well, as secure as flashplayer gets) version for a long time. When 11.2 end of support *does* finally approach, it will be a lot clearer as to whether flashplayer is at all relevant any more.
