I don’t have Adobe Reader 9.5. I tried to find it and it’s not in the list at firefox > tools > add-ons > plugins. How to I get it?
Others I DO NOT have
Gnome Shell Integration
iTunes Application Detector
NPAPI Plugin Wrapper 1.4.4
Others I DO have that are not in your list
DivX Browser Plug-in [also has DivX Web Plug-in]
mplayerplug-in is now gecko-mediaplayer1.0.7
Quicktime plugin 7.6.9 [also has 7.6.6 of the same]
VLC Web plugin [also has VLC Multimedia Plugin]
Windows Media Player Plug-in [also has 10 of the same]
To get Adobe Reader, you can serach for and load acroread I think it is called, but its not related to this issue. However, the main thing to see is that all pertinent media players are being done by Totem. Disable any that use anything other than as I show above.
Have I asked you what type of video system you are using? It could be nVIDIA, AMD or Intel for anything recent. What desktop do you use? It could be Gnome or KDE. I am using the same KDE version that came with openSUSE 12.2. Its my understanding that the very latest version of the GNOME desktop has a version of Totem that does not work properly. I am not sure what using Tumbleweed might do either. In one case a user with a 6000 series nVIDIA card could never get Flash to work properly. Also, I am still using the original mplayer and not mplayer2. I am using a very recent nVIDIA video card (new GTX 660 Ti for Xmas), but I am not loading the nVIDIA proprietary video driver on my main PC and just using the default open source one.
When you get everything thing configured properly in software and it still does not work, one must suspect the video hardware as being the problem. I show that “Model: SiS630 GUI Accelerator+3D” is very old and not main stream anymore as nVIDIA, Intel and AMD own the video market these days and I would not use AMD either in my opinion. What options do you have to replace this video chipset, if any?

I ran the zypper patch. Had to do it twice. Looks like it updated the whole os. Rebooted. Still can’t view in firefox or chrome. Chrome says no plug-in available to display this content.
However, kaffiene shows .mp4 videos on my local drive with no problem. This doesn’t seem like a card problem. But when I try firefox on the local .mp4 file, it just sits there with the wait icon going in a circle, after I push the go arrow at the bottom. At least that’s more than I got from youtube sites. Chrome has the arrow on the local file, but doesn’t do anything when pushed.
For the packman switch, you mean to turn it off? I’ve already turned it on.

This is worrying, since it uses a built in flash. Hence I’m inclined to think there is something technically wrong with your machine or install.
