I used to play streams from crictime and they used to play without any problem in both firefox and chrome, but they won't play anymore. Youtube videos play without any problem. I have already seen Problem playing online videos on Ubuntu 16.04 on askubuntu; the suggestions posted as solutions haven't worked for me. Some information regarding software version:

  1. Google Chrome : 57.0.2987.133 (64-bit)
  2. FireFox: 53.0.3 (64-bit)
  3. browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash is already the newest version (0.3.6-1~webupd8~xenial6)

I have also enabled flash for all sites in chrome. Would really appreciate the community to help me identify and solve the problem.

  • Try removing that browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash package and installing adobe-flashplugin instead. You have to restart all browsers to make them pick up the changed packages afterwards. – Byte Commander Jun 2 '17 at 13:45
  • What @ByteCommander suggested may help you get it work in Firefox. Google Chrome, however, has Flash kind of built-in, and does not depend on any separate plugin, so the fact that it stopped working in Chrome sounds a bit odd. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Jun 2 '17 at 15:02
