totem is not a flash player changing that to an user question

As said : Totem isn't a Flash player

you have to install a flash player or the plugin flash for firefox to view it.

Sorry, I already had Adobe flash Player installed and everthing is running fine with Flash in Firefox. It was just following that link on "http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Jaunty_Jackalope" that caused this behaviour.

In the meantime I checked that link with Opera. Result: No problem.
Another idea was to move to "http://www.markshuttleworth.com" in firefox and then have a look at the embedded video... it works fine.

Hence, it isn't really a Totem thread. It is about Firefox uses Totem instead of the installed adobe flash player when clicking on that link "http://www.markshuttleworth.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/jaunty904_notifications_example1_web_092.swf"

the issue could be a firefox one, opening http://www.markshuttleworth.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/jaunty904_notifications_example1_web_092.swf there just use acrobat flash player to play the video

Can you help with this problem?
