    I am running an Intel i5. Have switched to onboard graphics because the graphics card died and all working well. Can you tell me why this is an obvious question? Thanks.

    Oh. On older CPU's, like Early P4's or Athlon XP's, later versions of flash player 11.2 will not run due to the fact older CPU's are missing SSE2 instructions which is required by the newer versions of flash. But seeing as you have a modern CPU, that rules out that possibility as to why flash isn't working.

    Re: Flash Player Plugin problems

    To the OP, how did you originally install flash?

    In firefox there,at one point, was an add-on called flash-aid.
    See if it's still there install it and let it figure out the flash problems you're having.

    Or a simple thing to test out is to switch the flash versions running in chrome
    .
    To do so, enter
    Code:
    chrome://plugins
    In the address bar.
    click on the details button at the top right.
    scroll down the list of plugins.
    locate the shockwave flash plugin.
    If flash is installed on the system ,then there will be two flash choices, both will be flagged with a disable button.
    Disable the one marked 11.6-something.
    load a youtube page and see if runs using the flash version 11.2, which is what should run if you disable flash 11.6.
    If not, no harm, simply re-enable the 11.6 version.

    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

    That works on ubuntu 13.04 64bit for me.

    Question Re: Flash Player Plugin problems

    a lil off topic, but in the subject range i guess?...

    I've been having problems with flash in chat like tinychat.com...used to have problems with stickam.com before they shutdown. maybe my system is old, I don't know the cause...

    I have a dell dimension c521 with 2ram and hardly any mem..
    I try to chat on tiny chat - its fine. But when I try to broadcast my camera, i get stuck at the below picture without being able to choose options to accept flash..(?)


    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Now i've been able to change these settings through the chrome browser, but not chromium or firefox. is it something to do with shockwave? should i install something else? I have no clue...

    You can always just go to the flash download site and get it.They may have dropped support for Linux but they still offer a download of 11.2. If you read the instructions it will tell you the proper place to extract the files to.

    Re: Flash Player Plugin problems

    My Flash player stopped working in Chromium after a recent upgrade last week (on 12.04). I went to the plugins page and *disabled* the 11.2 Flash Player plugin ... and Flash is now working again. Know idea what's playing Flash now.

    btw, Opera never seems to have issues with Flash, so that's a good fallback.
