Hi John,

If you go into Applications -> Add/Remove, then change the drop down box
from Canonical-Maintained Applications to All Applications and search
for flash. It should come up with Macromedia Flash Player, which you
want to install. Also make sure Gnash and swfdec are unticked. Then
apply changes. You may need to restart firefox to get it to recognise
the changes. 

If it's fully embedded video, not just flash, then I'd recommend the
mplayer plugin for mozilla. Works a treat for me, but may not be anyones
cup of tea.
