That site uses Flash which you don't appear to have installed. Download from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ See screenshot.

Installed Flashplayer 10.2.159.1

Went to Vimeo, got this error:

<This video can’t be played with your current setup. Please upgrade to a modern HTML5-compliant browser Or install Adobe’s Flash Player. >

Are you saying that the new "Made to make the Web a better place" version FireFox 4 is NOT a modern HTML5- compliant browser?

Firefox 4 supports WebM and HTML5.

Can you see the link to "Switch to HTML5" below that video? I cannot see it on my system. See http://vimeo.com/blog:268

I cannot see it in FireFox, however I can see it if I use Safari! FireFox still says I have not downloaded Flash! Is there a way to link the Flash file on to FireFox so it see it?

Thanks

Can you view videos in youtube.com ?

Weird-- yes I can view you-tube vids. The first vid said I needed flash, but after that all the vids worked. I can now see Vimeo vids also Seems viewing in You tube must have forced the link to Flash, go figure.

Is this a common problem or procedure for linking Flash?

I haven't heard of it before, but sometimes apps need a kick in the rear end to get going again. ;)

Incidentally, sign up to the youtube html5 experiment by clicking the link at the foot of this page: http://www.youtube.com/html5

That might even influence the way the vimeo HTML5 player works, you never know.
