Hi Sergio.

I tried both the above sites on my Fedora Core 2 install, with Firefox, and they both work ok. I'm on dialup so they are slow to load, but 
play ok, including sound.

The only difference perhaps, is that I'm using the Flashplayer from Adobe, 
rather than the ones available from various distros, which sometimes have 
problems with some sites.

My Flash version isn't very up to date (, as of 17 Jul 2007), but 
plays the content on your links ok.

Google on "Flashplayer for Linux" if you want to try the one from Adobe, but 
remove the one installed at the moment, in case of conflicts.

All the best.
