I keep asking how to transfer my favourites from Windows to Ubuntu Bookmarks and no-one seems to be able to tell me in simple language. Videos in web pages don't play it's just a black space. How can I boot Ubuntu as my default page without losing the option to go to Windows.

You haven't specified what browser you were using on Windows. You haven't specified what browser you are currently using on Ubuntu. – Eren Tantekin Mar 6 '12 at 19:26
There are three question in here, you should ask them separately instead (actually you'll find answers to the other two here and here). If those are the questions you wanted to ask, just edit this question to be about bookmarks alone (and don't forget to add your browser on Ubuntu and Windows). Thanks! :) – Stefano Palazzo Mar 6 '12 at 21:06

The easiest way would be something like Xmarks

If you want to transfer your bookmarks from Internet Explorer or something, I don't know any automated way. (But you can import them to FireFox / Chrome first.) If you were using FireFox / Chrome, bookmarks can be synced across different installs, so this has nothing to do with your Operation System.

Flash Video ? If so, install Flash Player. You can find it in the Software Center. (No command line input needed.)

Which kind of Ubuntu install did you use ? If it's Wubi, just press F8 to call the boot list.
