Have you tried uninstalling then re-installing adobe flash? That should fix your issue.


It won't let me delete anything that is "adobe"
What should I do and tell me what to click every step if you don't mind. Still very new.

The easiest way would be to go to your ubuntu software center, then in the search box type in "adobe" then you should see adobe flash come up with a green arrow which means it is installed. Click on it, and press remove, it will ask for your password, type it in press OK. Once done, you can re-install the same way by clicking on it and pressing install then entering your password.

Then I would recommend going to your "Update Manager" program and updating all your ubuntu software, that alone can fix many issues. Then re-try watching your videos.

Let me know if this works for you. Glad to help.

Thanks for your help so far, but I'm sad to say that it has yet to fix my problem. I have uninstalled adobe then installed as you said and I have gone to the update manager and updated all I could and yet the problem still remains. I have seen some other people complain of this issue on other forums, but thy never get an answer either.

Maybe it's a bug in the software and you can do nothing about it :(

Binary blobs... I hate them!

Have you tried the latest adobe flash beta?

Well what is my next step in getting my computer fixed? I tried typing in a Linux repair in Austin and can't find any.
