How to get YouTube working in Ubuntu 7.10



December 11th, 2007

Question: I recently made the switch from Windows to the Linux distro Ubuntu 7.10.  Most things are working well but one thing that I can't get working is YouTube in Firefox.  Any ideas?

The problem that you are having is that you don't have the Flash player installed.  To get it working you'll need to fire up a Terminal window and type the following (press ENTER between each line and allow time for the install process to complete):

  1. sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
  2. sudo apt-get install mozilla-mplayer

Start enjoying YouTube again!
