Start by installing a media player plug-in for Firefox. Personally I prefer the tighter VLC: sudo apt-get install browser-plugin-vlc Restart Firefox and then access this web page: https://www.youtube.com/html5 There activate the checkbox "The HTML5 player is currently used when possible."

I will neither talk about the security issues related to using proprietary plugins (that recently proved being faulty in many ways), nor about the ethical implications in it.

The accepted way to get Flash in Ubuntu and Linux, and a recent version, is with Google Chrome, as it's the only browser shipping a Flash version. Adobe stopped supporting Flash for Linux (even in Firefox) around version 11. They no longer produce any 'new' Flash releases for Linux and the way Firefox handles plugins. Due to the really really old version ...
