run:
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
and
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-installer

now close ALL web browser instances .. and reopen Chromium .. go to

chrome://plugins/

Is there anything listed for "Adobe Flash Player" ? .. if not, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin adobe-flash-properties-gtk

RESTART Chromium .. and test flash

Adobe Flashplayer was not listed in the plugins and I got this message when I tried to install

Code: [Select]

Just do:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
then.

Gimme a sec with this .. I'm not even convinced the video on that site requires flash .. i've disabled EVERY plugin in chromium, AND IT STILL PLAYS :/
(I'm thinking it's possibly HTML5)

so you're OK now ?

Dunno why flash made a difference .. it appears to be an HTML5 video .. i can play it without flash installed

BUT

you MUST have

chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
not
chromium-codecs-ffmpeg

[EDIT]

which requires ubuntu-restricted-extras to have been installed and chromium restarted

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep chromium-codecs-ffmpeg

Yep it working fine and there's no doubt it was installing flash that finally got it working but it also needed the restricted extras


Many thanks again for your help

see the edit above :)

Oddly, I could play it without flash installed at all .. I can only guess you didn't close ALL web browser instances and restart chromium after installing the "extras" packages.

otherwise .. just one of those things.

Yeah that's the right one .. as I said I can only assume you didn't close ALL web browser instances and restart chromium.

That NEEDS to be done after installing the "extras" packages to allow the old versions to be flushed from RAM.

Anyway .. who cares it's working now which is the important thing :)

You might be right Mark I really can't tell now I can be a bit impetuous at times so it's quite possible, but like you said the important thing is you got it working


Thanks again

The very first thing I do after ANY Peppermint install is make sure the "partners" and "independent" repos are activated, then install ubuntu-restricted-extras and lubuntu-restricted-extras :)
