I am new to ubuntu and the last few weeks my flash player keeps crashing every time i want to watch a video. it all started when i tries to fix a problem where all of my videos were blue an strange. please help me
I once had similar problems, both with blueish flash videos and flashplayer crashing.
I suggest you follow the solution offered here, namely the second or third answer from above from the community wiki.
Every single problem I ever had with flash under Ubuntu has been solved that way.
Good luck to you and best regards!
I was having the same problems. And none of the solutions here in the forums were helping me. So I went to the Synaptic Package Manager and installed some "things" and my youtube videos started working.
So go to Synaptic and see if these are installed, if not then do them yourself:
Here is what you can do: (Im assuming you have flash 11)
Download this file : http://www.ziddu.com/download/20225702/libflashplayer.zip.html
Create a folder "plugins" under "/home/YOUR-USER-NAME/.mozilla/firefox/"
Like this: /home/leopard/.mozilla/firefox/plugins
Extract the zip and copy the downloaded "libflashplayer.so" to "/home/leopard/.mozilla/firefox/plugins"
Open nautilus as Admin. Go to "/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin". Delete the "libflashplayer.so" there.
Copy the extracted "libflashplayer.so" there.
