Youtube videos played, but embedded videos on pages could not be controlled (pause, fast forward, play).

In case the above site is no longer available:

  1. sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-installer flashplugin-nonfree swdec-mozilla mozilla-plugin-gnash
    • Don't worry if some fail because they are not installed
  2. wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-
    • Change out the version number for the latest
    • The labs version works while the normal one does not
  3. tar -xvf libflashplayer-
  4. sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
