    Flash video problem on 64bit with firefox3

    I can't see the videos on youtube, and anything on miniclip.com. I am able to see many of the flash stuff on pages like ads, but not youtube videos and the ones on miniclip.

    On youtube, I get a white box instead of the video, and in miniclip, I get that white tooltip which tells me to install some plugins, but cannot suggest me any.

    I have Intel q6600 quad core processor and 64 bit hardy heron installed.
    I looked at all of the stuff said about this problem, and tried the suggested solutions but none of them worked.

    Please help?

    I've got the same problem.
    If I'm not being clear enough or giving you enough information, just ask

    me too, I switched between adobe flash and gnash, both won't work on youtube. It still works on other sites, but it appears to be something that changed just today.

    Really weird... I go to YouTube today to watch a Dire Straits video, and start to download (using the Download Helper extension) the video to watch it in Totem, when it loads.
    I didn't install any updates, I don't think I changed anything... maybe whoever mentioned (somewhere) a problem on YouTube's end was right and they fixed it?

    Try reinstalling it, and then also make sure your system is completely up to date.

    Reinstalling what exactly? I don't think it's simple as that, there are like 15 threads and more than 5 web pages dedicated simply to this issue and i've reinstalled flash players, firefox, nspluginwrappers more than once.
