    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:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-restricted-extras
    You'll be installing codecs other useful programs. Details here.

    Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.

    Users can easily damage their systems by using sudo su if they aren't experienced enough.
