Just visited the site and videos are playable for me (FF 16 - Ubuntu
12.04.1).

Try to install or/and reinstall ubuntu-restricted-extras . Browsers must
be closed.

 From terminal (Ctrl+Alt+t)

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-restricted-extras

Thanks

tried what was suggested, without success! I will attach the message later when I resolve the below problem...
now i'm having a problem with accessing internet. No connection - error 106...message I get when openning a chromium session.
what can I do?
thank you
