Somehow YouTube wrote that I must have a Flash Player to watch videos, and apparently I don't? The website that was suggested on YouTube was:

And I didn't know which option to choose from. I thought that Ubuntu 9.04+ was the right one, but I am not so sure. My Ubuntu is 11.04. Please help. Lauren.

It looks like Flash is not installed in your system. You can please install it from Ubuntu Software Center, by searching for flash player and installing the Adobe Flash player.

I also have 11.04 and as because I had chosen to install the codecs during the setup process itself, flash is already installed in my system and working correctly.
