OS = Ubuntu 10.4, 10.10, 11.4 & 11.10. web browsers = Firefox and
Google Chrome. Same problem. Problem started when an upgrade to
FP 11 appeared in the update manager. There was an indication on
some downloads that three of the 67 repositories or files could
not be accessed. Since then no videos. Have downloaded from
Adobe and installed from Ubuntu on many occasions with no success.
Apparently not enough of FP 11 is downloaded and am left with FP
10; the browsers will work only with the latest version of FP.
Have seen that message early in the attempt to cure the problem.
Try again. The information about FP in the Ubuntu list of
available plugins indicates it is FP 10 and apparently the
browsers will not work with any but the latest version of FP.
That message was seen early in the process. A message said
earlier in the process that 3 or 4 of the 67 repositories or
files could not be accessed.
The process of trying to cure the no video problem that has been
going on for weeks now. For a while Chrome would not open, but
an update from Ubuntu cured that. There have been various
messages and various views in place of videos. The latest on
Firefox says express install not supported on this OS, visit
Flash Player download center. Sometimes a blank screen, some
times a black screen. Always no video
Please type the following in Google Chrome's address bar: chrome://plugins.
Do you see Flash listed there?
Download Flash Player from the following page: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
You have installation instructions in the following page: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/release-note/readme-flash-player-l inux.html
Have upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 with essentially the same results:
When FP 11 is installed with Ubuntu software center, some
animation is actually lost.
Apparently gnash SWP is carrying some of the animation and that
is lost when SW 11 is installed.
Ubuntu software center downloads FP 11 from Adobe.
One thing that I have not tried is to install FP 11 and disable
Europe, Middle East and Africa
