you tube does not work with 8.04

Asked by spiepie on 2008-12-13

Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) and 8.04 (Hardy Heron)

This method will install the latest flashplayer from the Ubuntu repositories, for Firefox, Konqueror, Mozilla, Epiphany and other browsers.

    *

      Enable the Multiverse repository if you have not yet done so.
    *

      Install the package flashplugin-nonfree.
    * Restart your web browser. Flash should now work.
    *

      After installing flashplugin-nonfree, sound in Flash will not work. To fix this, install libflashsupport.

I have done all this and still it does not work

any other ideas please!

Do you have 32 or 64 bit version?
Anyway, did you try installing adobe flash player? Maybe try that first and see if it works. It should be painless ... www.adobe.com -> get flash player -> select .deb for Ubuntu 8.04+
