firefox flash player html5 youtube (solved ..just like that)

Postby 007 » Fri May 11, 2012 3:45 am

I have linuxmint 12 kde with firefox 12 and the situation I have here is that when I play youtube videos with html5, it gives audio but not to flash player. It used to be just the opposite up until yesterday afternoon.

Funny thing is that I was actually trying to figure out why html5 does not give audio in youtube videos and learnt that it was due to some patented codecs.... and I just let it be but now... htlm5 plays nicely but flashplayer does not give audio!?

Help needed and thanx in advance!

Edit: agrrrrr now both html5 and flashplayer give audio......... 8) but :? too

With the codecs of Mint DVD editions (or "install codecs" in the menu on CD edition) any HTML5 video/audio should play fine on Mint.
