Re: flash issues with Mint

I will take that all into consideration on my next shopping trip, I live about 120 miles from the nearest large city so have to plan out my trips to the city. But yeah, thanks for the happy new year expression, it is always a great year when we have helpful people posting on these forums, so Happy N...

Re: flash issues with Mint

thanks for the information. Now, to go off topic. I am in need of a new graphics card, and got GForce 8400 nvidea card but it didn't fit the AGP slot, I guess my motherboard is too old, a Pentium 3 Intel. My old graphic card fits into the agp slot and is divided into 5 basic group of contacts with s...

Re: flash issues with Mint

Okay, the ideas have seemed to stop flowing, so I will throw out this question. Could my flash issues be somehow tied to a failing graphics card? I have one that is going out now, the print and graphics causes lines to run across the screen leaving shadows of dark areas against the white or light ba...

Re: flash issues with Mint

Thanks you for the suggestion, downloaded and installed minitube but can't get it to play on my computer. It loads the thumbnails but won't run. It was worth a try though.

Re: flash issues with Mint

Thanks gn2, downloaded and found out it isn't compatible with firefox 3.5.5, so am back to square 1 again. The other video download add-ons don't seem to work well, will download and then stop, I have to click pause, then resume to finish downloads, many times more than once, but will continue looki...

Re: flash issues with Mint

Made all the changes I was going to try, swfdec mozilla and swfdec gnome, plus gnash but nothing seems to have helped, am still at the same place I was before. What is the best way to download flash video for viewing in mplayer or movie player, I need to be able to see some of the videos someway. Fl...

Re: flash issues with Mint

Yeah, guess I will play around with them this evening, all that can happen is that I will have to remove them again, but it is worth the try. If I had the money to put into it, I would maybe try a newer Nvidia graphics card to see if that might work. Really hard to justify putting good money into my...

Re: flash issues with Mint

Thank you rich_roast for your input. You mentioned gnash, I don't have that installed or enabled, and also had questions about swfdec-gnome, which is a stand alone viewer, and swfdec-mozilla which is a plugin for Macromedia Flash animations. What are the functions of these programs and can they be i...

Re: flash issues with Mint

I agree that it is a problem, but I hope it won't truly always be one, and until then I will continue to attempt to get a working system. I really don't like spending hours trying to get flash to work, but the alternative (Windows,Mac) doesn't appeal to me at all. I left windows about 6 years ago an...

Re: flash issues with Mint

Hi I removed pulseaudio, tried an embedded video and it played through, went to youtube and tried the same video and it played for about 48 seconds restarted and it played for 1:12 then stopped again.

Re: flash issues with Mint

Hi again, I removed pulseaudio but on the search for libflashplayer I didn't get any hits so that wasn't removed, could it be listed under some other header such as "plugins" or something similar, I can't seem to find it listed.

Re: flash issues with Mint

Hi gn2, thanks for the suggestion. How do I go about removing pulseaudio and libflashplayer? do I do it through synaptic or terminal, and if terminal what exactly are the commands? What is the purpose of pulseaudio and libflashplayer? are they essential to the Helena audio or video environment? will...

Re: flash issues with Mint

Updating this issue, I tried Ubuntu Karmic and had the same problem, flash video would play for a short time then stop and go into buffering mode, waited for Helena to see if the problem was resolved here, still have the same issue. If I am playing utube or embedded utube video on my computer, it wi...

Re: flash issues with Mint

thank you htismaqe for the reply, sorry it took so long to get back to you on this but it is hunting season and must fill the freezer for the year.

Re: flash issues with Mint

yep, will agree about not installing something that I am unsure of, there is too much there for me to make a decision. Will wait for Karmic for the fix.

Re: flash issues with Mint

Hi, Yes, I believe the Quadro may have been designed for that, this one specifically came from a workstation, but was configured with it's own hd for storage while connected to a network. It was used for cad/cam work and the files stored on the hd but accessible to the workgroup. I got it when it wa...

Hi htismage, Thank you for the suggestion, tried and it is the same.

Re: flash issues with Mint

First off, thank you for your reply, now to answer your questions... I checked the driver, it says that I have no proprietary drivers installed on my system, although it lists an alternative madwifi driver that I can install if I have any problems with the ath5k atheros driver, which seems to have w...
