No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "undf". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

Well, it's because of the codecs problem.

I also experience it with flash videos. I had to use ppa for latest codecs.

Which Linux Mint version you using?

You can search ubuntuforums.org for guidance on how-to get latest codecs.

Have you tried with MPlayer or/and Gxine or Totem-xine? :roll:

Well that is certainly good news if you get a massage from your new Mint installation.

Try installing the Adobe flash plugin to see if it handles your stand alone flash files.

Otherwise you might have to get your "hands dirty" :D
