That's very vague. We'll need more info from you to assist you. For
starters, what production release of Ubuntu (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc)
are you using? (i.e. 6.04/6.10/7.04/7.10/8.04). Or have you ventured
forward to the Intrepid Alpha test 8.10 release? Are you running 32 or
64 bit? What browser program/release are you using? And then then does
all online audio/video fail to run or just some? It may prove to be as
straightforward as getting some additional codecs from medibuntu, but
without knowing more about your setup, there's not much help anyone
can provide.
