This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

does it works on any other browser? if not, try this : sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras –  penreturns Aug 1 '12 at 0:55

Remove or disable Video-Downloading Extensions , No-Script , or Flash Block like extensions and give it a try. If that does not help try removing or disabling all extra added extensions.

Also checkout http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1953796.

Also Adobe has announced it plans to discontinue the stand-alone Flash Player for Linux.

Do you have any graphics driver installed , check if it is properly installed .Try Removing flash completely , do a new installation of Flash. –  atenz May 17 '12 at 6:23
