|I got a number of flash videos to work on streetfire.net and youtube, using opera, and trying to watch a few different videos.|
Are you sure they were playing through flash 9? I have no problem with youtube videos, etc., without it. Flash 7 works fine for most sites. This is similiar to the issue of sites that "require" the latest version of IE for everything to work right.....hello? (Note: don't laugh...Comcast actually laid this on me the other day....)
Absolutely, it was with flash 9, and definitely flash videos. Here is what I did.
Installed Flash9 according to instructions in someone elses post and all the GTK stuff and firefox 1.5
Firefox 1.5 always crashed, so I also found in a post instructions for setting an alternate path with Opera to plugins, set the path to the plugins in the Firefox directory, then went and watched some flash videos in Opera. They worked not at all the first 10 or so attemtps, and then about half the time the video would show, but with no sound -- without me doing any changes at all except to keep trying to watch different flash videos. Weird bug.
