    Do you have flash 9 installed? I believe abc uses flash for their videos.

    I install flash according to this site...
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...t=flash+player

    When I try to play an ABC video I get this message "Oops
    Our new video player is only available for:
    Windows 2000/XP/Vista - Internet Explorer, Firefox
    Mac - Firefox, Safari
    To watch, please download the appropriate browser."

    I am using Firefox.

    CBS and NBC play fine.

    Sorry I just checked the site and even with Flash and changing user agents it wouldn't work. Try running Firefox under wine.

    You need the MoveNetworks player to watch abc.com shows. Go to their site and try installing it. Then shoot them an email requesting support for Ubuntu. There is a work around. It's in this thread I created a year ago.

    I checked your thread and clicked on the link you had problems with(
    http://abc.go.com/fsp/index.html?lid...os=VideoPlayer) and it worked fine, so I suppose they fixed that problem. I think the problem is trying to play the "full episodes" http://dynamic.abc.go.com/streaming/...lMenu&lpos=FEP

    I was referring to the full episodes. You need the MoveNetworks.com player for them to work.
