Flashplayer is working on YouTube, Vimeo, and BBC iPlayer. Nothing new will play on 4od though, when using Linux Mint (14, KDE, 64 bit and 32 bit Cinnamon 14), though archived programs seem fine.
These two don't:http://www.channel4.com/programmes/4od/ ... -dont-workhttp://www.channel4.com/programmes/derek/4od#3483578

4od stuff on YouTube is fine and though while googling I saw things about a 'hosts file' that might be involved, there seem to be no entries in mine at etc/hosts that are relevant and nothing in hosts.allow or hosts.deny except commented out notes.
These things will play on my Windows 7 netbook though, and also on my Kobo Arc Android tablet which weirdly is supposed to be crippled as far as Flash goes.
I tried Chromium and Firefox. I tried with Adblock Plus on and off. I tried with my install and with a live USB stick. I've just downloaded Solus OS to see if that works. Kubuntu 12.10 on a live usb stick with flashplugin installed gives the same results as Mint so nothing to gain by switching to that.
Can you let me know if this is the same with you? Probably you'd have to be in the UK. (Don't bother watching Derek though, it's a mess...) I'm curious to know if it's something in the makeup of mint's codecs as installed or whether something else I added is involved, for instance a little bit of downgrading or replacing occurs when you install OpenShot to accommodate rendering videos using XVid, similar to how Iused to find that get-iplayer would get issues if I also installed Audacity.
Is there a way of debugging this or seeing what exactly is hanging when the 4od show will not start?
