    In any case. Youtube works for me in firefox with the flash player installed...
    I don't like being the poor relation in anybody's double standard. Is there a good reason why you are trying to pick a fight on QIII's behalf? I just want my Flash Player working again. The Ubuntu Software Centre offers Chromium as a browser, NOT Chrome. I don't know how to install Chrome. I also don't know if it is a good idea.

    Thank you. Yes that worked and was straightforward. Hooray, I have audio and visual again, but only in Chrome. Both Firefox and Chromium Browsers were working properly in the last few days, does anyone know how to fix them?

    No fix, Firefox still wants an Adobe Flash Player to play video.

    No fix for Firefox. Thanks for trying.

    Well, looks like you'll have to use Chrome.
    Not sure why some have this trouble. I have a bunch of Linux machines and all have flash working in Firefox

    FYI, my bad, it should be
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    But you seem up to date.

    If chrome is playing Youtube I guess your graphics tec are OK
