(note) get adobe flash player in the repository. You know add/remove

ubuntu has it in there or you can get a flash pluin for firefox


(note) update you distribution of Linux before going in to the repository and doing anything
(note) when you have updated everything install all GStreamer that will help with play back

Another thing do not run code that you do not know of

I have the same problem too only with Opera. Instead of the video a grey box appears. This is the same for all video sites.
