I've been using Linux Mint 14 in VirtualBox for some time and have not run into problems playing flash videos.
However, when I recently install LM 14 on a desktop, I was surprised to find flash videos and websites that rely upon flash not properly loading. Currently, when I load a youtube video, the video area shows up as a black box. No ~"plugin missing" message is displayed.
Any ideas on where I should look first? Some of the older threads I found were referring to older versions of Linux Mint.
I kept poking around and tried downgrading to mint-flashplugin-10.2 and it worked.
Anyone know why this would be?
