I recently installed ubuntu on my laptop and was able to install the flash plugin.

I am able to play youtube videos on firefox with no problem. However videos on some websites don't appear, only shows a black box. An example would be tvgolo.com.

I was wondering if there is any fix to this? Maybe I'm missing codecs?

Thanks, Nazir

  • Try libhal, as described here: omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/10/…

  • Thanks for the reply but 4od seems to be working fine for me, and I don't think libhal is available anymore. But the tvgolo.com website is still giving me problems.

  • Thanks but I'm now using chromium as my go-to browser so I don't have to worry about that problem anymore.

I use chrome and pepperflashplugin-nonfree. Your site works with that.

If you are not willing to change browsers, make sure you have flashplugin-installer installed.

  • Thanks for your reply. Yes I'm aware that it works with chrome, but I've been using firefox for a long time now and I don't want to change to chrome. I do have flashplugin-installer installed and still doesn't work.
