    It works for me on F15 and did on F12 also. I can watch youtube, etc.

    Edit: The Fedora Project has a wiki on flash, etc. Have you searched the Fedora Forums?

    Adobe plugin works for me on F10-15. Typically all you need is to drop libflashplayer.so into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/. If you're 64bit, you can either use the "pre-release" Adobe 64bit plugin, or use a wrapper. The 64bit plugin has been in "pre-release" for a couple of years, through multiple versions, and works fine for me. It goes in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/. For updates I just download the zip and extract that one file.

    Questions: How do I drop libflashplayer.so into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ ? How do I know if I'm 64bit? What's a 'wrapper'? How would Iget and put the ''prerelease' plugin into /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ ? Why can't I just use the gnash I installed?

    Yeah I'm probably the only person in the world who has Fedora but is not good with computers. I had a thread about my wifi not working and it turned out when I went to 'setup' that it wasn't turned on.

    I'm not sure what he did, but after a couple hours at it my brother got youtube to work. Now my only trouble is getting a media player to work.

    Mjmwired's guide is invaluable for setting up media of all sorts. This is specific to F14, but you can easily adapt it to F12.

    I will get my brother on that as soon as he wakes up.
