Hmm, probably not, already installed medibuntu. – user7182 Jan 7 '11 at 17:41
Can you provide a link to a video so I can test it? – lovinglinux Jan 9 '11 at 0:37
Try, thanks. This problem seems to be quite common when I did an online search. It could be the version of the divx plugin or something like that. In the meantime I'll just use the totem one. – user7182 Jan 9 '11 at 7:20
Works fine here in Firefox 4 and Opera 11. – lovinglinux Jan 9 '11 at 21:34
Then maybe it is related to my hardware. Thanks a lot for your time! – user7182 Jan 9 '11 at 21:56
