I'm running 11.10 mint and have this problem too, with the Chromium
browser and flash. On reading about your problem, I checked and I have
this problem too.  I've tried reinstalling but no change. I do not have
apparently, any gnash or other alternative AFAICT. However, I can go to and watch a Keiser Report,

so does this not use flash but another video driver?

But there are other video links on that site that do not work, just
provide a static image, like below;

All is working correctly AFAICT within Firefox 10.0.2

Any suggestions?
