Watching movies on line (SOLVED)

Postby norm.h on Wed Oct 24, 2012 11:56 am

My sister-in-law in the US has two laptops, a Lenovo G560 and a Toshiba Satellite L350.
Linux Mint 12 is installed on both lapotops, with no dual booting.
She watches movies from Hula.com on the Toshiba, but when she tries on the Lenovo, the Hula site just shows a blank green page.
At first, it was telling her she needed Adobe Flash, which she installed, but she still gets the green page.
I have suggested she compares the Adobe files on the two machines, but what else should she be looking for, or does she need to do?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

What browser do she use? Is the browser same on both laptops? Try another browser eg. Chromium.

Firefox on both machines.
She has resolved the issue - by making sure both machines had the same Adobe configurtion.
