You just need to remove the totem browser plugin:

sudo apt-get purge totem-mozilla

And you should try to install Flash Player from Software Center (or try installing flashplugin-installer)

I deleted the totem plugin and my flashplugin is already in the newest version. now after removing the totem plugin, a missing plugin symball is shown. NOw what to do?? –  Nirmik May 19 '12 at 11:23
    
On which site do you get that error? It could be a site that requires Microsoft Silverlight, but if it's definitely because of flash, try to reinstall it. –  jP_wanN May 20 '12 at 12:20
    
But the videos play on linux from chrome..!! its only a problem in epiphany..!! –  Nirmik May 20 '12 at 12:45
    
I think Chrome has its own Flash Player that's perhaps installed through Chrome instead of Software Center. Try Firefox. Does it work there? –  jP_wanN May 21 '12 at 6:16

Do you installed flashplugin-nonfree if not, run:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

EPIPHANY or Firefox, run the same flash plugin in the same location.


Install:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
