Hi,
really getting used to ubuntu now and loving it.

The only problem I seem to have is that when I try to access any videos on web pages It will not play the video. all get is the timer spinning in the middle of the screen as if its loading up the video, but it will carry on indefinately if i let it. is there any sort of plugin or repo I should have installed to play this content.

you have ubuntu-restricted-extras installed, right?

beyond that... sometimes restarting firefox helps.

unfortunately, the source code for Flash is not publicly available so teh bugs cannot be corrected.

Can you please give us an URL to a video that doesn't work?

Does youtube work for you?
