Ive been dabbling with linux for some time, but wouldnt consider myself an expert, and recently, I finally got completly tired of windows, and have switched to OpenSuSe 12.2 as my primary OS. My problem comes into play with playingvideos. I installed java, and I believe it was the icedtea plugin, and I can play some youtube videos with sound, video, everything, but some videos, when I hit the play button, the sound plays fine, but the video will not display. On youtube, usually the official music videos play fine, but the non official ones (the ones where people put their own video in) dont, and most news program videos will only play the sound. Ive got all my appropriate drivers installed to my knowledge, as well as plugins. Im running mozilla firefox.

alright, it works perfectly in chromium, so I now know its a firefox issue. I can use chromium if I have to, but I prefer firefox, so I guess now I just need to find out what specifically in firefox is causing the issie.

yea firefox has been having some flash issues. at least you can use chromium. i noticed that there has been some flash updates; maybe installing the newest might fix the firefox issue.

patriot...have you seen this:  Amazon Instant Video on OpenSuse 12.2 – FlashPlayer and DRM issues. « Dispatches from Andyland

 

QUOTE:

Adobe Flash needs the deprecated hal daemon. It isn’t in the standard OpenSuse install, but is in the KDE 3 repository: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_Factory


Adobe’s instructions for the location of the flash plugin is wrong,
the RPM version in /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so works.
(Flash is in the NonOSS repository http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.2/repo/non-oss/) Adobe’s instructions are to bypass the RPM and download their tar.gz archive. That didn’t seem to be necessary for me.


All in all its straightforward, but the information was scattered to find. The openSuse forums
discussed finding HAL in KDE3, but not the exact repository, and in
between rants that Adobe shouldn’t be using it anyway and rants that DRM
is evil (I might agree with both, but that doesn’t help the issue.).
Adobe mentions that it needs hal but where and how to install it for
openSuse 12.2. The Adobe Linux flash help page does have a sample flash
video player that will report DRM access and a sample DRM protected
movie (the “Getty train video”) to test against, but its suggestions to
use tar.gz over RPMs has some unfortunate long term consequences.

alright, thanks buddy for that, was going to try it, but managed to get it fixed thanks to a friend of mine, using sudo.

 

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install x264 

 

it gave me an error when I did it, but upon restart, it was working fine. Thanks all for your help.
