All three boxen are  different.  
One just plays.  With flashplayer-mozilla.
One I see an eternally turning white circle.
One starts to play and then stops and refuses to go any further until I turn 
adblock off.  I have no adblock.  I have even installed adblock so that I 
could turn it off.  When that didn't work I uninstalled it again.

On the Jessie machine, I installed Pipelight.  I was wading through seeing 
whether I could do anything about the dependencies that are suggested as 
potential problems, when flashplayer-mozilla was suggested, so I tried it.

So that's three I know work.  One of mine and two of yours.  And I do in fact 
know of one or two others.  If you are saying that you have solved the 
problem, consistently, and you are very good at solving problems, in view of 
the number of people who struggle with this, it would be charitable to post 
your solution somewhere on line.
