Even though I can play Flash videos on most sites. It's been going on. Tried to install Flash manually and with Flash aid help but nothing. I'm running 12.04 LTS, But I had the same problem with 11.10.

Use Google Chrome... Because the flash support for linux has been withdrawn and now google administers it for linux so chrome is a must and everything will go fine... :)

that's really not the answer i was looking for. Guess it'll have to do for now. What about gnash? – Dinopaterno22 May 14 '12 at 21:21
Well even I am facing problems with gnash. The default gnome web browser "Epiphany" uses Gnash as the primary flash support but as i said no flash content is displayed in it. So as of now chrome seems the solution. or you may try to remove(purge to be safer) flash plugin and reinstall it. – Nirmik May 14 '12 at 21:28
this didn't work... – Dinopaterno22 May 14 '12 at 21:28
Then you should consider reinstalling the plugin – Nirmik May 14 '12 at 21:30
I've did that twice, and still nothing... :/ – Dinopaterno22 May 14 '12 at 21:35
