  1. Open a terminal.

    If you haven't already, enable the Canonical Partner Repository:

    sudo add-apt-repository "deb oneiric partner"
  2. Install the package adobe-flashplugin.

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

Or, in case that doesn't work:

  1. Open a terminal.

  2. Install the Chromium Browser.

    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Watch the video in Chromium.

The issue here seems to be some versions of the Flashplugin in combination with Mozilla Firefox. While I was able to solve this by installing the Flash version mentioned above, this has never been a problem with Chromium.

Tested on 64-Bit Ubuntu 11.10
