I have installed the EPIPHANY WEB BROWSER developed by GNOME

But the problem i face is i cannot see any video on it..!!

No flash content is displayed either.

Only a window showing TOTEM player shows up...How can i get it working??

I have Flashplayer plugin installed along with Gnash.

Only some YOUTUBE videos can be played.But only a handfull of them..!!

here is what happens-





Videos from no other sites can be seen


It gave me the following error-



You just need to remove the totem browser plugin:

sudo apt-get purge totem-mozilla

And you should try to install Flash Player from Software Center (or try installing flashplugin-installer)

  • I deleted the totem plugin and my flashplugin is already in the newest version. now after removing the totem plugin, a missing plugin symball is shown. NOw what to do?? – Nirmik May 19 '12 at 11:23
  • On which site do you get that error? It could be a site that requires Microsoft Silverlight, but if it's definitely because of flash, try to reinstall it. – jPlatte May 20 '12 at 12:20
  • But the videos play on linux from chrome..!! its only a problem in epiphany..!! – Nirmik May 20 '12 at 12:45
  • I think Chrome has its own Flash Player that's perhaps installed through Chrome instead of Software Center. Try Firefox. Does it work there? – jPlatte May 21 '12 at 6:16
  • well its working fine with mozella too..!!! I dont know why it isnt with Epiphany :( Its a gr8 light weight browser for browsering the net..!! :( – Nirmik May 21 '12 at 6:20

Do you installed flashplugin-nonfree if not, run:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

EPIPHANY or Firefox, run the same flash plugin in the same location.


sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer



found this on the Arch wiki for epiphany.
