[Solved] Running shockwave videos on 64 bit LM17 Cinnamon


LM 17 Cinnamon v 2.2.13
Kernel 3.13.0-24-generic
Processor i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz x 4
Memory 1479.5 GB
Graphics card Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller
NVIDIA Corp GK107M [GeForce GT 650M}

I need to play a lot of instructional videos for my training course. They are all in SWF (small web format?) format. I have a default installation so only have 'Video' and 'VLC Media Player' available. Using 'Video' I get the following message

Required plugin could not be found

Videos requires to install plugins to play media files of the following type: application/x-shockwave-flash decoder

I have read this post

but as my machine is a Samsung I am not sure if the instructions are relevant. Is it possible to run any of these shockwave moves without too much fiddling about?
