Good afternoon,

I am having a small problem with flash player ( running on 64 
bit Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

I get the message: Video format or MIMEtype is not supported. When 
trying to play Watch SpaceX's Falcon 9... from CNNMoney Videos, or from 
any other video.

What is wrong I have tried to search for that message but have found 
nothing that is relevant. Some OLD stuff but nothing current.

I did receive one response suggesting that I change my browser... I do 
not wish to do so. I ave 2 other systems running 16.04 that function 
correctly, however, they are running the 32 bit version

Should I change the flash player to some other version? If so, do I 
completely uninstall or just do an unistall?
