Do you, perhaps,live in the country that blocks youtube? – mikewhatever May 28 '13 at 21:05
In windows its works perfectly. ! – Manoj Kumar May 29 '13 at 3:39
If I understood well, you already tried running the flashplugin-installer again? What happens if you run minitube (install first: sudo apt-get install minitube)? This little program plays (and downloads) youtube-videos in a seperate window. Would be interesting to know if this works. Good luck – user177752 Jul 23 '13 at 18:20
