I have been unable to view any videos online since the latest Adobe Flash Player update. When I go to view a video on YouTube there is only a black screen in place of the normal player.

  • If you go to adobe.com/software/flash/about do you see the spinning flash logo or your installed flash version information?

  • I see the installed flash version information.

  • If you didn't see the spinning "f" logo then you need to install or re-install flash

tried sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer ?


I had the same problem and solved with this:

sudo mkdir /etc/adobe
echo "OverrideGPUValidation=true" >~/mms.cfg
sudo mv ~/mms.cfg /etc/adobe/
