Why I can't see any video in any website with Firefox 11.0 in Ubuntu 11.10?
I was using Ubuntu 11.04 and everything was ok. After some time, suddenly I was unable to see any video online (after an automatic update I believe but not sure). I decided to do a clean and new installation of Ubuntu 11.10 (from a CD). I didn't do anything extra, I mean no new software, no changes in the configuration just the normal installation of Ubuntu. But still I have the same problem. Thinking in Flash as the cause for the problem, I already installed and run Flash-Aid but the same, no videos. I'm a very new user for Ubuntu (Linux in general) no experience.
Thanks in advance

I am new to Ubuntu, but I see videos ok. Firefox may play some natively but I also have FlashPlayer installed. IIRC FlashPlayer is not on the original Ubuntu 11.10 CD but has to be installed as a separate Firefox plugin. From your system information aside it appears you do already have FlashPlayer installed.
- Have you got FlashPlayer enabled currently ?
- I Note you have Div X installed, which is not something I know about, but could that be interfering with some videos, have you tried disabling Div X.
