I'm running Fedora 17 and Firefox 12. When I navigate to some sites I'm unable to view videos because I'm missing some plugin. When I click 'installl missing plugin' I'm still not able to view the video.

Any idea I can view them without installing Flash Player (not Open Source I believe)? What directory are these web plugins stored?

Some Flash videos can't be viewed without the closed-source Flash Player. Chrome tends to be better at playing Flash out-of-the-box than Firefox. – Gilles Aug 18 '12 at 14:40
