Ubuntu 12.04 Videos Stopped Streaming

Asked by Solidarity on 2012-08-19

I installed a patch to solve the blue videos problem as advised in this link:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/117127/flash-video-appears-blue under the title: The workarounds > Install patched libvdpau (proper patch)

The problem was solved and Youtube videos displayed normally but suddenly Firefox closes as soon as it is opened I installed Chromium and it doesn't detect any Flash items whether its buttons or videos.

Then I uninstalled Adobe flash and installed the latest version of Lightspark and the Youtube videos still don't work.

Can someone please guide me through the troubleshooting process?

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'

Thanks

Enable the partner repo in software centre and install abobe-flashplugin

Should be ok
