Ubuntu: Can't see YouTube videos in either Firefox or Chromium [duplicate]

How do I fix Flash issues?

Dont' know why or if it is related, after upgrading Ubuntu 10.04 kernel ( I guess from 2.6.32-38 to -42) I can's see youtube videos. I checked the flash plug-ins installed and I have: (1) flashplugin-installer, (2) flashplugin-nonfree and (3) flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound. I haven't reinstalled the browsers yet. Here's the code of the plugins installed:

williepabon@raquel-desktop:~$ sudo lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'  [sudo] password for williepabon:  No LSB modules are available.  Distributor ID: Ubuntu  Description:    Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS  Release:    10.04  Codename:   lucid  Linux raquel-desktop 2.6.32-42-generic #95-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 25 15:57:54 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux  ii flashplugin-installer Adobe Flash Player plugin installer  ii flashplugin-nonfree Adobe Flash Player plugin installer (transit  ii flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound 0.0.svn2431-3 Adobe Flash Player platform support library  

Any ideas to solve this issue? Thanks.

Clarification: Problem is with the Flash plugin. Chromium says "missing plugin", Firefox shows a blank screen where the video was suppose to appear. Vimeo messages "Shockwave Flash has crashed"


It may be due to Flash Player whose version is too old (11.2). I get it with Chromium on Ubuntu 12.04.


Found an answer, for anyone with a similar problem. Here it is:

Since this is an old computer, you may have the wrong CPU for version 11 of Flash. Use cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep sse2 and if nothing is printed, that's your problem.
