You need flash player to play. You might have flash but the current version of flash (flash 11) have various issues. You need to downgrade flash to a previous verion.

Here is what you can do: (Im assuming you have flash 11 and firefox 14.0.1):

Download this file :

Create a folder "plugins" under "/home/YOUR-USER-NAME/.mozilla/firefox/"

Like this:  /home/leopard/.mozilla/firefox/plugins

Extract the zip and copy the downloaded "" to "/home/leopard/.mozilla/firefox/plugins"

Open nautilus as Admin. Go to "/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin". Delete the "" there.

Copy the extracted "" there.

Restart firefox.
