This question already has an answer here:

I'm using Firefox browser. I navigate to RuTube.ru and try to play a video. I get a message that says "can't load plugin". I'm sure this has something to do with Flash. How do I get these videos to play in Firefox?

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04.1 and latest Firefox updated via Ubuntu package manager.

  • Can you play video on YouTube? – Jim Nov 3 '16 at 3:04
  • @Liso YouTube uses HTML5 by default since a very long time. RuTube still requires Flash. As such, whatever happens in Youtube is irrelevant for the issue, – user589808 Nov 3 '16 at 3:06
  • @JordanEvans Yes, you need to install Flash in order to use Firefox. Alternatively, install and use Google Chrome which comes with the latest Flash embedded. – user589808 Nov 3 '16 at 3:07
  • @Liso I can play YouTube videos. – Jordan Evans Nov 3 '16 at 3:09
  • @CelticWarrior I have Chrome installed. It cannot play the video either. – Jordan Evans Nov 3 '16 at 3:11

Enable Canonical Partner and install the adobe-flashplugin package which installs plugins for both Firefox and Chromium.
