Hello. I have a question to ask you regarding Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit.
I notice when I am using the default web browser for Ubuntu v.11.10 -- that is Firefox, and I wish to play some YouTube.com video on it (as a test trial and found a few) that did NOT play on Ubuntu's Firefox. This is not the case for all YouTube.com videos. Many YouTube.com videos do play fine on Ubuntu's Firefox. For those that do not; I get the message, The video is currently unavailable." printed in white on a black area of the YouTube.com's video screen. For example: The name of the video is called, "Ottawan D.I.S.C.O" with the URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxcbFFRYKS8
. Now, I checked it in Windows 7 64-bit's Firefox web browser the SAME video with the SAME URL and I had no issues playing it. So why is Ubuntu's Firefox unable to play the video and Windows 7's Firefox can play the video. I made sure I had the SAME web browser as well to compare it to.
FYI and this may or may not help you and be considered irrelevant to this question: I have both my Windows 7 64-bit and my Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit installed on the same hard drive on the same computer with shared booting.
Any ideas why the issues with Ubuntu playing this particular YouTube.com video and not Windows 7 with the SAME web browser for the SAME URL and SAME video?
