    Ubuntu and Youtube inconsistency

    Here is my problem:

    Computer 1: Ubuntu 12.04, 32-bit, ubuntu-restricted-extras installed (Adobe Flash plugin installed), Firefox browser.
    Computer 2: Ubuntu 12.10, 64 bit, ubuntu-restricted-extras installed (Adobe Flash plugin installed), Firefox browser.

    Now, there are some youtube videos (here is an example) that will play on computer one, but will return the error "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available" on computer two. I don't get it. Could you explain me the reason? Is there any way to diagnose and solve this problem apart from installing another web browser on Ubuntu 12.10 (I'm generally quite happy with Firefox)?

    Okay, the problem disappeared after I installed Adobe Flash Player v. 11.2 (or was it 11.4? I forgot) from the Adobe site (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/).

    Which means that I am still watching these Youtube videos in Flash, not in html5.

    D--n!
