    Question Help videos / youtube


    I'm on a Dell Latitude D520 Laptop, running Linux Mint 6. Everything seems to be running fine except YouTube. I can play flash games, and watch videos from other sites that use windows media player, but I can't watch videos that use quicktime or any videos on YouTube. Is there something I should download or install to get videos on YouTube to work? please help.

    Hello and Welcome to Linuxforums.
    I think you should try installing gstreamer plugins, check your package manager and search for gstreamer and plugins, you most likely want gstreamer-ugly but you may need a few more.
