Try replacing your current Adobe Flash with GNASH (http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/), it's available in the repository.


sudo apt-get install gnash

Not knowing what you have and have not done as far as installing video apps, I would recommend this tutorial - the best IMHO how to on multimedia - especially check out the sections on installing Flash plugins. My guess is you need to reinstall flash. Try this command in a terminal and see if that helps (note you do need the medibuntu repository enabled) as per the link).


sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-nonfree gnash gnash-common libflash-mozplugin libflashsupport mozilla-plugin-gnash nspluginwrapper swfdec-mozilla && sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
