Hi gregpo.

Have you installed flash? If not, go to the Software Center, or to Synaptic and do it there.

For me the easiest way is to do it on the terminal:

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-restricted-extras
You'll be installing codecs other useful programs. Details here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats).

Let us know how it goes.
Regards.
