    I can't (FF and Opera). Maybe they are Real container/format ?
    Currently in Kubuntu, must check my other installs. Also must check Adblockers.

    Yes, I can play those videos. I am running Ubuntu Linux 10.10 from a USB flash drive, and using FF 3.6.24 with NoScript which I have set to Temporarily Allow Javascripts at the website. It takes less than a minute for the video to be transferred to my computer and then begin playing the videos with Flash Player.

    Yes, thanks. After several Noscript temp. allow clicks and disabling Adblock Plus, I can also now play them in FF - all versions.
    With Opera I need to see which filter is blocking the flash vids.

    I managed to play one. (I tried just one!) The ad stuttered a lot but the actual video was fine. I had to turn off Privoxy. I'm not sure that it was Flash. How can I tell? It was contacting something like ooyalaplayer.com (?). I'm using Aurora (Firefox 10) on Ubuntu 11.10. (I have a low net speed.)

    It's "l.player.ooyala.com"

    Yes, I can play all that I tried. I did have to turn of a few things to get them to play though.
