    [SOLVED] Totem and YouTube

    I can't seem to get Totem to play the YouTube vids.When I do the search the results come up but then I get a message saying:

    Totem cannot play this type of media (YouTube) because you do not have the appropriate plugins to handle it.

    Please install the necessary plugins and restart Totem to be able to play this media.
    Will someone please explain to me what I am supposed to do? Thanks a lot.

    are you trying to play youtube vids in firefox? if so, you need the flashplugin.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

    using the youtube plugin in totem, right? have you installed the correct gstreamer plugins? install all the gstreamer plugins in add/remove programs, or in synaptic, totem should play .flv media files after installing the necessary codecs.

    Ubuntu Restricted Extras in Add Remove or Synaptic should also take care of it for you. It will also install flash ( if not already installed ) and a few other packages.

    You might have to play that file on your browser
