It plays for me, although I had to turn off Adblock Plus to get the page to load. Are you blocking ads ?

I don't know, the issue could be my box although my box is pretty new about four years old only with great spec. The 64 bit installation was pretty new but after trying several things like uninstalling ad-ons ie adblock jheaton mentioned above and no-script, flashplugin still did not work for me. I did another clean installation of 64 bit and before doing anything I added the contrib repos and subsequently installed flashplugin it was still a no go for me. So at the end, I installed 32 bit on a 64 bit machine, from there flashplugin is working. I may have lost some performance but I rather have a reliable machine than one that can't do what expect from it.

The flashplugin on 64 bit only worked on bbc and youtube for me. Anywhere else it did not. My guts feeling is the plugin is still in beta version as I read and it will get better.

Cheers.

You must purge all Flash-related packages and ensure that the plug-ins are indeed removed (inspect the directories and about:plugins in Iceweasel), then install flashplugin-nonfree.
Oh!, and I can watch UEFA's and NHL's videos without problems. That Bergeron's save was amazing, mate!

You lucky dude!!! :wink: I was trying to get into the celebration all last Saturday before kick off of the UCL final it was not good for me. Had to borrow the wife's windows machine :roll: .
