ppc and flash fix

Asked by Sergey V. Udaltsov on 2010-09-23

On Power G5, flash cannot be played. Firefox advises to search for the plugin.

The "Install Multimedia Plugins" is going to internet but cannot find anything. The error message is "No packages with the requested plugins found". Requested plugin is "H.264 decoder"

The flash plugin used is gnash.

can you try adding medibuntu repositories?

medibuntu does not support power g5, only intel

Why did you close this bug? It is still there! I provided the information - I cannot use medibuntu on ppc.

Fabio Marconi (fabiomarconi) said : #6

Have you already installed
ubuntu-restricted-extras ?

Yes, version 42

ok, for the flash the latest version of gnash solves the problem.

There is still another problem - totem is unable to find h.264 decoder. But that's probably a separate story. I'll file separate bug
