That sounds like your Flash plugin is broken or missing (or, at least,
Firefox can't use it for some reason).
How was it configured before? I presume Flash was working, but do you
know how you installed it? Simply doing
sudo apt-get install --reinstall flashplugin-nonfree
*should* pull in the Adobe flash plugin and make the video Just Work
again. Failing that, could you open about:plugins in Firefox and see
what there is in there for Flash?
