The stream is restricted to the territory of Romania, so I guess you
are there.

I was able to watch an ad there, but not the stream due to the above
restriction. For your information, I moved the libflashplayer.so
to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
Yes, I am in Romania. I moved the plugin too, same result (or lack
thereof). Since the issue extends to other browsers and flash players,
I don't think it's a Mozilla-only problem.

Hi everyone,

Sometimes I want to be in touch with the World Cup so I try to
watch it online. The URL in the Subject is the site of Romania's
national TV which broadcasts the games online live.  I tried
flash-plugin-nonfree, I tried directly installing libflashplayer.so
in ~/.mozilla/plugins, installed at the same time or separately, I
tried pepperflashplugin-nonfree and Chromium, I tried Firefox
Nightly (I compile my own every week), I tried Iceweasel, Epiphany
and lots of other browsers, I tried disabling FlashBlock and other
extensions but the outcome is the same : all I get is a black
square with no content. On my other machine running Arch, with
FlashBlock enabled, it works just fine. Running stable/testing on a
Thinkpad X200, and tested lots of WMs and DEs (KDE, Fluxbox, Xfce,
i3wm). Any ideas are much appreciated.

What does cat /proc/cpuinfo say?
I have had problems with libflashplayer.so silently crashing due to missing SSE2. If this is the case you could try installing an old version. But it's problematic, because it might be more vulnerable to hacking. You can enter about:plugins as an URL in firefox to see the installed plugins(+version).
