Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I simply can not open Youtube in either the firefox browser or chromium browser. I’ve read most of all the articles on the ubuntu forum with no results. I've reloaded the operating system at lest five times, and added only the recommended add ons with no results.
This is what I have:
firefox 23.0
UbuFox extension for firefox. Mod 2.7 installed
Browser plugin for Chrome -DjVu image
Adobe flash Plug in
Ubuntu restricted Extras
Chromium Web Browser.
I get the following error message:
Couldn’t load Plug in- Could not load Shock wave Flash
My hardware acceleration is turned-off.
What am I missing, or don't have installed?
Can anyone point me in a new direction to try to correct this problem?
