Using Macos 10.8.4 on a mac mini (2012, i7).
On Safari, Firefox, Chrome or SR Iron, flash videos do not work at all. I get a "movie not loaded" message.
Going to this url
Flash 11.7.700.225 reports "Movie not loaded".
Still having the exact same problem. In chrome, it's reported that I'm using flash 11.8.800.97, but I get a "movie not loaded" error.
In Chromium I cannot ascertain a way to upgrade the flash, it's still on 11.7.700.203 but I have the exact same error.
On a separate windows machine I'm having the same exact issue.
Download the offline installer here: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac/install_flash_playe r_11_osx.dmg
If it won't download directly, right click and "Save as"
Go to: Mac HD/Library/Internet Plugins
Trash the Flash Player.plugin file from there
Go to: Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe
Trash the Flash Player folder (the whole folder)
Empty the trash
Mount the DMG and run the installer.
BEFORE opening any Flash content in Safari, open Safari>Preferences, and check the Security tab to make sure "Allow all other plugins" is checked.
