No problems here as well on Linux. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teI8o6k67-k&fmt=37 --- Most likely caused by the old Flash 8.0 r22 plugin in your plugins list.

Your plugins list shows outdated plugin(s) with known security and stability risks.

# Shockwave Flash 8.0 r22
# Next Generation Java Plug-in 1.6.0_17 for Mozilla browsers 

Update the Java and Flash plugin to the latest version. See http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp#jdk (you need JRE) http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
