Which problem in detail? Can you please either explain a bit more in detail or give us two or three Youtube links which give us a chance to reproduce the problem which you experience.

The genuine mint-flashplugin does not work for you on your Mint 13 system.
Alright. Let us take this for granted, though I suspect that "not working" only means "does not play certain Youtube videos" in fact.
I bet you will be able to see a ton of advertisements on a ton of webpages which use flash animation without any hassle and without realizing that you do see flash animations.

Well, basically if you want Flash, there is only Adobe Flash.
If you take the pain and search carefully, here in this forum as well, then you will find out that you can get the Adobe Flash plugin in either of three ways:
- The Flash plugin package which you will find pre-installed on Mint 13/14 is named mint-flashplugin-11.
To tell the truth, for an unknown reason the mint-flashplugin-11 software package will always be less up-to-date than the latest Linux version released by Adobe.
This is why in this forum, too, people are advised to uninstall the software package mint-flashplugin-11 and replace it by either #2 or #3 (see below)
- The most recommended way of getting the latest available Linux version of Adobe Flash is by installing a software package named flashplugin-installer. As the name suggests, this software package will pick up the current Adobe flash player and install it.
- The third way of getting the latest available Linux version of Adobe Flash is by installing either adobe-flashplugin plus adobe-flash-properties-gtk or adobe-flashplugin plus adobe-flash-properties-kde
Obviously, the easiest way of keeping Flash up-to-date on Mint is by taking the second approach: install and use flashplugin-installer

On all Linux distributions the vast majority of software packages can be received through centralized software repositories. No need to find the different webpages of the different software producers and download the software packages separately. Software installation and software updates for all software can be done with the help of one single controling programme:
e.g. with the help of Synaptic Package Manager (Menu => System Administration => Synaptic) or the Software Manager (personally I prefer Synaptic, reason: better control on what is going on)
This approach is different from Windows. But who said that the existing Linux distributions should try to be like Windows? If you want Windows, use Windows, nothing wrong with it. If you run a Linux distribution, do things like they are done on Linux.A note on the term "Latest Adobe Flash version available on Linux":The current Adobe flash version available on Windows is 11.7.700.202
at the time of writing this.
Adobe does not offer anything newer than the Flash series 11.2.x for Linux. They apply security patches, but they do not add new features to the Linux flash player software. Therefore the most recent Flash version for Linux is 18.104.22.1685
(There is 1 exception to this rule: the Google browser Chrome brings along its own Flash plugin on Windows and on Linux, and Google makes sure that it is as up-to-date as the Windows flash version.)
The difference between 11.7.700.xxx vs 11.2.202.xxx of course implies that Flash on Windows can do a few things which Flash on Linux cannot do.
It is Adobe who decided to stop developing Flash for Linux, not the Linux makers.
So if you should come across Flash based content which can be displayed on Windows, but not on Linux, remember to beat the right dog, not the Linux (Mint) makers.
(Honestly, I have not yet had such an experience. But maybe this is because I rarely watch Youtube videos.)Back to your failing Youtube videos:
Tarzaan, if you did not just want to express your frustration, because on Mint 13 your flash player refused to play certain Youtube videos, but if you would like to receive advice how to solve the issue, then you should definitely feed us with some hard facts, like error messages which you read and two or three links of Youtube videos which cannot be played.
