Unable to watch Apple videos

Postby rmcellig on Wed Oct 24, 2012 5:59 am

I am using Linux 13 MATE. I went to Apple's site to watch the videos on the new iPad. I am not able to. Has anyone been able to watch videos from Apple's web site? What am I missing?
Take care,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I'm sorry, I must be thick and I"m a little confused. Are you saying you are running Linux Mint 13 on an Apple iPad?

I assume the OP means he wants to watch videos from the apple site 'about' the new ipad mini - using a LM13 mate machine, but I can see how you thought differently.

I'm running LM13 Mate & the videos work for me (from the UK Apple site) using firefox.

Ahh, I see. My apologies to @rmcellig. I am thick. It must be a result of looking at the the world from down under.

I shouldn't even be putting my two cents worth in now because I've not even tried MATE but, FWIW, there's no problem viewing the site on my antique machine using LM13 Xfce.

I am using Firefoc 16.0.1. I can get to the site. The problem is watching the two videos on the main page. One of them describes the new iPad mini.
