Adobe Flash Player
« on: September 06, 2016, 05:52:27 pm »
I have Mint 17.2 64 bit. Up to today I have been able to play videos on the BBC News site without any problem. Today  when I tried to play one I get a message saying Flash player needed to play this video - download now. When I click the download nothing happens. I can't understand why this  has happened, as far as I know I haven't altered anything. Is there an alternative video play I can use? I would appreciate some advice. Thank you.

and what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep flash

It's OK. I have solved the problem, the plugin for some reason was disabled.
