Define "not working".
Hi, and thank you for your reply. By not working, I mean that, in the player screen in Youtube, the screen is black. There's no image,
and there's no control ribbon on the bottom. There's no indication that the video is playing, no circle of dots to indicate that it is loading, no > or || control, no volume control, no resolution control; no size control, .. nothing, just a black screen. Right clicking does nothing.
There's no error message (such as Aw snap!) and no puzzle piece logo to show that a plugin is not working. If I disable adobe flash
and replace it with gnash or swf-flash, I can sometimes get the flash to load and play, but sometimes I get missing codec errors (h.264 mpeg). I have codecs installed, andgstreamer installed, the -good versions, and not the -bad or -ugly versions
I hope that this helps
Thank you for the details. Unfortunately I know close to nothing about Linux, so I am not really able to help until someone from the Adobe team can look at your problem after the weekend.
If I see a similar problem on Windows, one of the first things I usually recommend is to look for updated graphics drivers.
would you mind to disable "Hardware Acceleration"?
right click on the flash content and select "Settings..."
click the first tab and uncheck the box for "Hardware Aceeleration"
refresh the page and try the video again. thanks...
I just encountered the same problem. Flash (188.8.131.52) no longer works on FireFox 11 but works on Internet Explorer.
I'm trying to get Wimpy Player to work. After updating Flash Player, I can only see Wimpy in IE. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera don't see the Flash Player and want me to install "missing" plugin(s). When I try to "install" I get initialization failure probably since the activex and exe are already on my system.
It doesn't seem to see the exe.
What can I do to fix it?
It finally decided to work! This is after rebooting Windows 7 about 6 times since I installed it! Go figure...
Wow... I spoke too soon! It's back to not working.
