Please, could we get output of the command

	rpm -qa *xulrun* *firefox* *mozilla* *flash* *plugin*

Thanks in advance.
Comment 2 Edward Karavakis 2008-11-16 04:39:00 EST
[spoilt@prodigy ~]$ rpm -qa *xulrun* *firefox* *mozilla* *flash* *plugin*

Comment 3 Edward Karavakis 2008-11-16 04:58:59 EST
The system is always up to date. I had the same problem on Fedora 8 (both 32 and 64 bit). If I download and install firefox from the mozilla website then all the flash video content of the site will work fine.
Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2008-11-18 07:42:10 EST
Please, install nspluginwrapper (both for x86_64 and i386 if you have x86_64).

Closing as NOTABUG until proven otherwise.
Comment 5 Edward Karavakis 2008-11-18 08:13:59 EST
I've got nspluginwrapper already installed... And as I previously stated, it doesn't work on 32bit as well. Flash works fine on any other webpage except the specific one. Also, I'm able to view all of the flash content of this webpage with any other major linux distribution.
[spoilt@prodigy ~]$ rpm -q nspluginwrapper

> Flash works fine on any other webpage except the specific one.

Then the problem is probably in the flash player itself, which we don't support not having the source code for it available.

Closing as CANTFIX (because we cannot).
Comment 7 Edward Karavakis 2008-11-18 18:07:34 EST
As I already said, it works fine if I download firefox from the mozilla website AND it works with all major linux distributions except Fedora (and probably RHEL).Thus, no, it's not a problem in the flash player itself nor nspluginwrapper, Could you PLEASE check the link:  http://www.skai.gr/master_avod.php?id=50359
Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2008-11-19 03:50:18 EST
I can't reproduce this bug with Flash 10.0 r12, Fedora 8 and Firefox/Seamonkey browsers. Do you see any error message in logs? (like selinux denial, flash crashes and so on). 

And please check new nspluginwrapper (nspluginwrapper-1.1.4) from updates-testing.
Comment 9 Edward Karavakis 2008-11-19 05:38:37 EST
Works fine with the latest nspluginwrapper from the updates-testing-newkey repo. Thanks a ton!
