You need flash plugin to get it working on browsers.. You might want to try
the non free (adobe) plugin...

> Hi,
> I have upgraded a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120 laptop (1 Gig Ram and 1.7GHz
> Celeron CPU) from Ubuntu 13.10 (Unity desktop) to Lubuntu 14.04. I used the
> CD to do an upgrade rather than a fresh install. Here are my experiences:-
> 1. The upgrade went well until the very end where I got the message
> "Restoring previously installed packages...". This took one hour and
> fifteen minutes to complete (total install time of just over two hours).
> 2. The upgrade asked me for new user name, computer name, and log-in
> details. I would have expected the installer to copy these details across
> as this was an upgrade rather than a fresh install. I entered exactly the
> same information as before. What would have happened to my data on the home
> partition if I had entered a different user name, would it have been
> preserved? This behaviour may confuse new or inexperienced users.
> 3. The upgrade left the Unity desktop, and all of its applications, on the
> machine as an option that I could select at log-in.
> 4. Firefox and Chromium will not play any Flash content even though the
> machine says that it has Flash Player installed.
> 5. My biggest concern is that the finished install of Lubuntu 14.04 runs
> no faster than when using the Unity desktop. This is surprising as I have
> another old laptop with half the RAM and a slower processor that runs much
> faster. I have tried to remove Unity and its associated processes but it
> has made no difference to the speed. My next step is to try a full fresh
> install of Lubuntu 14.04 sometime in the next couple of days.
