Re: You Tube videos don't play in Chromium AGAIN!!

Back again. Reinstalling Adobe Flash Player made things better for about 5 minutes and then once I tried to play the tutorial again I got the black screen back. That was a fresh install of Ubuntu Mate with installing only Chromium. Oh well, at least I don't have to consider moving to Ubuntu, because...

Re: You Tube videos don't play in Chromium AGAIN!!

Hi, Spearmint2. This is a fresh install of Mint Mate and the only add-on I've installed is Pepperflash. I'm experimenting with Ubuntu Mate as well (don't like it as much as Mint) and it appears there as well. Interestingly, the first item in the Ubuntu software 'boutique' is Adobe Flash Player, whic...

Re: You Tube videos don't play in Chromium AGAIN!

I'm back to square one! Having decided to settle for Mint Mate rather than Xfce I did a clean install, which of course meant I had to install Chromium and Pepperflash again. Having done that my guinea pig YouTube video loaded and played correctly -- hooray! Then needed to play another video and imme...

Re: You Tube videos don't play in Chromium <SOLVED>

Pepperflash is also available in the repositories.For many people it may be easier to install... Just to clarify, when I wrote Having gone to Pepperflash in my Xfce machine it's shown as 'Not available'. However, on this (KDE) machine it additionally says: 'Please use apt-get to install this packag...

Re: You Tube videos don't play in Chromium

Follow-up Now working on my Xfce machine! Many thanks to Spearmint2. For the sake of anyone needing this in future I followed the instructions for Debian 9 'Stretch' here: https://wiki.debian.org/PepperFlashPlayer/Installing As usual you need to do it as root or via sudo. For info: Having gone to Pe...

Spearmint2 wrote: Install "pepperflash", which should have already been in Chromium browser. Also can go to the youtube.com/html5 page and set to use html5 video rendering. If that doesn't work, maybe reinstall the browser, or get an earlier version that actually did work on youtube. I don't know if...

You Tube videos don't play in Chromium AGAIN!!

When I try to play videos from YouTube in Chromium I get a black frame with this error message: "your browser does not recognize any of the video formats available" This happens on both my computers, one of which is practically brand new, both running Chromium: Version 63.0.3239.84 (Official Build) ...

Update Manager doesn't offer LM 18.2

I'm currently running Mint 18.0 and want to upgrade to 18.2. Apparently I should be able to do this directly using the Update Manager Edit menu, but it only offers LM 18.1 Serena.

Yes I have told Update Manager to refresh and do all the 'safe' updates.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Albert
