View Full Version : [ubuntu] Adobe Flash player

June 24th, 2012, 02:33 AM
I installed Adobe Flash player using Ubuntu's software center. When ever I revisit the software center it indicates the flash player has been installed. I can play Utube videos . Utube videos play excellent.
Here is the ploblem , when ever I try to play streaming live video an errors come up that say I need to install Adobe Flash player . error Camtasia studio you need to install flash player or somthing like that; (live streaming ) TFNN.
I already tried copying the flash player .so into .mozilla created a plugins folder and still does not work. basically my main prolblem is live streaming content . why does it say that I need to intall flash player if It works fine with youtube videos, thanks

try running an update of your machine... maybe your firefox is lacking behind in something....

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

I tried what you suggested it did not work. I also removed the flash player wit sudo apt-get remove --purge . I re-installed it . live streaming from tffnn say I need to install flash player . Puppy linux works fine with live streaming and tfnn

Try using the firefox extension, flash aide. It will download the most recent flash file from Adobe and install it for you.

I already have tried to install the restricted extra from ubuntu's software center my Var/apt/cache/archive: is had gotten very large . I am thinking perhaps I should reinstall Ubuntu to see if the problem would fix itself. I am happy libre office is running great , qtstalker is running excellent . 95% of the system is running good. I would like to say Thank you very much for your efforts and suggestions. I am very happy that, there are people like you in this world; that do offer their time and knowledge to this community. I will give it a try one more time , again thank you very much.!:guitar:

It seems Google have fixed the problem.
I not long ago did an ubuntu upgrade and one of the upgrades was a Google Chrome upgrade.
I came back home after shopping and tried Youtube and other video stream and both have worked. =D>

pass it on! I have an old AMD 1700+ .that my dear friends was the real problem .. I removed my hard drive and installed it on my Pentium 4. Adobe flash player works great!!
It looks like Ubuntu operating system does not support Amd 's Mother boards real well.

I think that Ubuntu's support for Intel mother boards is better

Intel Mother boards winner AMD mother boards losers

have a great day :popcorn::popcorn::popcorn:
