I now have a standalone version of Fluxbox CE as well as Fluxbox window manager running over a Gnome install and I just noticed the following behaviour when playing Flash video. The video on this page (Bahrain Grand Prix):http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport works perfectly as does the one on this page(UK weather forecast): http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/10209 but the ones on this page (carbon nanotubes):http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8556656.stm and this page (Saturn's Rings):http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8564405.stm don't work at all. As you will probably notice they are all from the same website. If I swap over to the Gnome desktop (remember I have Fluxbox running on top of Gnome) all four work. If I right click on the videos and select 'About Adobe Flash' it tells me that I have the latest version installed and that it is working correctly.
Anyone know why this is?
