Video pages in youtube are not working. Youtube opens fine, but each link like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHnHXQiIWF4 opens a blank page.

Same thinks happens in firefox and chrome. Please help

Do other Flash sites work? For example, can you play videos at dailymotion.com? Are you currently in YouTube's HTML5 trial (which uses HTML5 embedded videos instead of Flash)? You can find out at youtube.com/html5. What happens when you open a Terminal window (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'? (This gives information about installed flash packages/players/plugins.) Please edit your question to provide all this information. –  Eliah Kagan Apr 5 '13 at 2:21
