Hello. I’m using SuSE 11.0 and would greatly appreciate if anyone can help with a solution to why I can no longer play the videos on this website.
The site was recently redesigned. Previously I was able to scroll down the page and play the videos using Flash.
But now Flash won’t work in either Firefox or Konqui to play the videos. (Note, however, that videos on other websites such as cnn.com do play in Flash, so it’s a mystery beyond my level of understanding.)
On this website with Firefox I get a message superimposed over the screenshots that says “video available soon.” Clicking on the video does nothing.
With Konqui I get a message that says “you need Adobe Flash Player version 9.0.115.” Again, clicking on the screenshots does nothing.
So I looked in the package manager to see what versions of Flash and Flash Player I have installed.
It shows for Flash Player v. 220.127.116.11-0.1-i586 (installed)
and for Flash Plug-In v. 10.0.32.18-release-i386 (installed)
and for libflashsupport v. 000-67.1-i586.
I have refreshed the repositories and tried to update everything Flash – all without making any difference.
I also looked in about: plugins in Firefox and found:
File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 10.0 r22
I also went to the Adobe website:
Adobe - Adobe Flash Player
and found Flash Player v. 10.0.32.18. I selected the rpm version for Linux, downloaded it, and installed (or so I thought).
None of this made any difference. The new v. 10.0.32.18 that I downloaded and supposedly installed from the rpm doesn’t show up in the package manager. It still shows as v 18.104.22.168-0.1-i586.
Note also that disabling Adblock Plus makes no difference (and it was always enabled in the past).
Despite everything I’ve tried I can’t play the videos in either Firefox or Konqui.
Any ideas? I REALLY need to be able to view the videos from this website.
