Video Problem (SOLVED)

first you got to be more specific with your question. Is the problem you can't view embedded video within firefox? Or is the problem you can't play any videos because you don't have a player? Or your player (if you have one) can't play certain types of videos. It is really hard to answer questions that are so vague.
WARNING RANT: I don't mean this as a personal dig but it seems lately that there are a lot questions that are either so short we have to take some wild guess as to the problem or the spelling and grammar (example: the spel and grm r so bad) are so bad that it is like trying to translate Mandarian before we can even get to the question. So please people (new and old) let's try to put a little more effort into our posts; especially the original poster. If you want answers to your questions (especially the one's that are asked over and over again...and don't worry I did the same thing last year) then please take the time to write a coherent detailed explanation of the problem. If you are new to linux and don't know exactly what the problem is just try to explain it in the best way you can.
Examples: Good-I have a linksys wireless card model number 123 and it is the G standard. I put it in the pcmcia slot on my computer and nothing happens. I'm really new to linux and don't know what to do. I have googled some possible solutions but don't really understand what's going on. I have also searched this site and saw the how to on wireless and that helped clarify things somewhat but I don't know whether I want something like ndiswrapper or madwifi or if linux supports my card natively. So any advice would be appreciated, especially if someone has this exact card and can tell me their experience.
Bad-I have card for internet it dont wrk. I plug it to computr and nothin hapens. Help!!!!!!!
Sorry this rant wasn't just directed at you but we need information and lot's of it assume (as they said in college) that your reader knows nothing and you must explain everything I would rather have to much information then too little.

I'm sorry that I offended you I really did not intend this. I was new not so long ago so I know what it is like to feel overwhelmed by linux. But it is really helpful for us to help you if your questions come with as much information as you can possibly give us. My examples were just that examples (many people have wireless questions). All I wanted to know is what kind of video problem you were having and also maybe what distro (like suse, fedora, ubuntu etc.) you were using. This information makes it possible for all of us to help you.
Please don't think that people here aren't extremely nice and willing help this is a very newby friendly forum and I sincerely apoligize if I made you feel that it was not.
You do not have to write an essay just enough info for us to not have to say: "Can you please be more specific, I can't really tell what kind of problem you are having."
