Peppermint5 youtube not work (SOLVED)
« on: September 05, 2014, 04:54:09 am »
After installation of Peppermint 5, Youtube fails to play videos. Youtube shows message "Helaas er is iets mis gegaan" (dutch).
I tried adding some extentions but with no good result.
Browser: Chromium (flash installed)
Pc: Asrock ion 330

Hi c_ve, that just says, "unfortunately, something has gone wrong".  Have you installed the Lubuntu restricted extras and Ubuntu restricted extras?  If not, open a terminal window with the keystrokes, Ctrl+Alt+t and enter the following commands:

TipLinux is case sensitive.  To reduce the possibility of typographical errors please use the Code: [Select] function below to highlight the contents. Click on the centre mouse button while in the terminal window to paste the contents.
Code: [Select]
apt update && apt upgrade -y
Hit enter and do the password thing if asked.  (Note: For security, passwords are entered invisibility) Next, enter:
Code: [Select]
apt install lubuntu-restricted-extras ubuntu-restricted-extras
Hit enter.  You will be presented with one or two EUlAs.  Use the "tab" and "spacebar" to select accept the Terms & Conditions.  You must accept to continue with the installation.  Close all instances of your browser and then re-open Chromium/Chrome and check a Youtube Flash video.  I hope this helps  ;).

If that doesn't work, can you please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo updatedb
then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep sse2
and
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep flash

sudo apt-get remove chromium-codecs-ffmpeg
sudo apt-get install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra

the above commands did the trick. Now it works!

Cool, thanks for the update, and thanks for marking the topic (SOLVED) :)

But can I ask that n the future, rather than mark the last posting as (SOLVED), can you please edit the FIRST posting in the topic and add (SOLVED) to the subject line .. that way it gets marked as solved in all the forum menu's too.

TIA :)

PS. I've done this one for you.
