flockDock IconFlock is a great browser especially when it comes to using it for your social needs. We did a post sometime back on how to install flock on your Ubuntu machine. However, what’s the fun in having a browser that cannot play flash or let’s say video files from youtube. That’s right by default your flock will not play youtube videos in spite of the fact that you installed flash player on your ubuntu machine.

You’ll see something like this when you try to play a youtube video on flock.


So let’s see how to get flash working on Flock on an Ubuntu install. We’ll install flash for flock on Ubuntu.

1. Bring up the terminal window by hitting ALT+F2 and type gnome-terminal.


2. On the terminal window type the following command:

sudo cp /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so /usr/share/flock/plugins/


3. Restart your flock if it’s running and you should see youtube playing videos.


We hope this makes you use flock more often than you’ve been using it already!
