[SOLVED] why is it I can't watch south park on crunchbang

Ok, here is the thing.  When I go to south park studio's website, the full episodes don't play on my crunchbang laptop, but when I swtich to my XP laptop, it plays perfectly fine.  Why?  This is a mystery to me.  Why doesn't it support crunchbang?

Flash. And the current issues gnu/linux is experiencing. Try Chrome, though that probably wont work either. If stuff doesn't work, I usually can find the same stuff on YouTube. Though in this case, you probably cannot.

Edit: Being in the UK I can only watch the clips, but they seem to be working though.

Hmmm. I just went there and the full episodes worked fine on Iceweasel. Which version of CrunchBang are you using?

Re: [SOLVED] why is it I can't watch south park on crunchbang

The Muppet Show -- long story (Waldorf and Statler are characters on The Muppet Show, and corenominal has an affinity for the show and its characters). But as enjoyable as the show is, and you're welcome to visit The Muppet Show site, any references here are irrelevant to your problem.

To find out which CrunchBang version you're running, type this in a terminal:

lsb_release -a

=OR=

cat /etc/*-release

One of those should tell you what version of Debian you're running, but I'm thinking that since it was a year ago, it'll be Statler.

But wait, there's more.

Which browser are you using? If you are using Iceweasel (or Firefox, too, I think), if you go to Tools > Addons and click on the Plugin tab, it should tell you which version of Shockwave/Adobe Flash you're running.

You probably don't have to re-install, but you're going to have to follow through on the instructions I asked for above so I know what we're dealing with and, hopefully, provide you with some assistance.

Since you asked, I'm running Waldorf r20121015, which I think is the latest testing version of CrunchBang.

Re: [SOLVED] why is it I can't watch south park on crunchbang

@sexynsmartjenny

Did you do some updates since the first install?

You can start the terminal (terminator) and try to upgrade some packages. Just type

 sudo apt-get update 

Next you have to type

 sudo apt-get upgrade -s 

This command will not perform a real upgrade. It will just simulate one, so you can see witch packages will be updated. If you are happy with the simulation you can type the same command without the "-s".

You can do this also via Synaptic. Just hit Mark All Upgrades button and it will show you the available updates.

So maybe your flash version is old and on the South Park site have some new version, and there is some mismatch or something.

I can also watch the full episodes. Flash version 11.0.1.152/ Iceweasel ver. 11.0/ Crunchbang 10 last ISO version from 07.02.2012

And one last question for you. Do you have an adblock program on your browser? Can you watch youtube videos?

Dried frog pills
As their name suggests, these are pills made chiefly from frogs, specifically the extremely poisonous ones that live in the vivarium at Unseen University and handled by the first-year students, so that if they kill one of them, not too much education has been wasted.

I use them daily! tongue

Right, zubcho81 -- that's what I was getting at in asking for the info from the origina poster. We haven't heard from her, and hopefully she was able to get it working. If not, sexynsmartjenny, we're still here to help.

It's probably outdated Flash. Download Google Chrome, install it, and you'll be fine.

Re: [SOLVED] why is it I can't watch south park on crunchbang

good work.
remember it'd be good to do those commands (apt-get) once in a while, like when windows does it update thing, you need to ask for the updates yourself as you have done to keep things, errr up to date  smile
