Hi All,

  I have a really strange issue. I can't watch any embedded youtube
clips in any browser on my Ubuntu 9.10. I tried firefox and epiphany.
Does anybody has the issue?

  For example, I can't watch youtube video from (just click play and nothing happens). But if
I click right button of my mouse and choose "watch on youtube" I can
play the clip
( It
is definitely problem with my system because epiphany has the same
issue... May be a package is absent?

nikman at nikman-desktop:~$ uname -a
Linux nikman-desktop 2.6.31-14-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16

nikman at nikman-desktop:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release

Best regards,
  Nikita Manovich.
