Do you recommend that I un-install install the flash-plugin/
to see if that solves the problem I have the version in
synaptic which is 10.22.87-2 intrepid?
A couple of points there: if I load it, it displays a
notice about needing the flash plugin (which I have
installed), however it works anyway - the stream still
plays. It's possible it needs a newer version of flash
than you have installed AND it has some broken code for
detecting if flash is installed.
