Hi!

Have you installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras package? If not, then installing that should solve your problem. You can install it with one click from here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats#Easy_Install

Thank you for your reply but link didn't solve problem. Tried the terminal also but still getting endless buffering. The most frequent error message is "Your browser doesn't support this format"

Could it be due to my using StartPage as my home page and browser as opposed to Firefox it's self? although I never had this problem before the Ubuntu upgrade.

The main package you need to have installed is FFmpeg after a new Linux distro install, otherwise you will be more limited on what you can view with HTML5 for videos, audio and games. FFmpeg provides the codecs needed.

Some Youtube vids may still work without FFmpeg installed though you will likely will have issues with recently uploaded videos and live streams on YT.

Thank you for your reply. Could you explain how I go about installing it? sorry I am no geek! Is it Ubuntu software or a FireFox program?
