Actually, ubuntu does have flash. You need to just open mozilla firefox, and then go to a site that requires flash like deezer.com or shockwave.com, then click on the yellow bar that appears on top that says "Install additional plugins", and a prompt will appear that will guide you to install flash. After the install, you can try to restart firefox and flash should be working well and good. Or you can open up synaptic package manager and enable the nonfree repository, then download the flashplugin-nonfree package.

Sometimes, this may not be the case with you, you need to install things like Java and Adobe and flash before you can use some sites. That has happened to me after a fresh Ubuntu install.

How to Make Ubuntu Play MP3 Files


Because of licensing issues, Ubuntu is unable to play MP3s out of the box. We’ll show you how to play MP3s and other restricted file formats in about four mouse clicks.
The philosophy behind Ubuntu is that software should be free and accessible to all. Whether MP3 and other file formats are free is unclear in many countries, so Ubuntu does not include software to read these file formats by default.
musicplayer_001.png Fortunately, it does include a package that installs the most commonly used file formats all at once, including a Flash plugin for Firefox.
Note: These instructions are for Ubuntu 10.04. There are small differences for earlier versions of Ubuntu.
Play MP3 Files
Open the Ubuntu Software Center, found in the Applications menu.

Click on View and ensure that All Software is selected.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_001.png Type “restricted extras” into the search box at the top-right. Find the Ubuntu restricted extras package and click Install.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_002.png Enter your password when prompted.
authenticate_003.png Once the install is complete, close out of Ubuntu Software Center, and you’ll be able to play MP3 files! To confirm this, we’ll open up Rhythmbox, found in the Sound & Video section of the Applications menu.
sshot116.png Our test MP3 plays with no problems!
Note: If Rhythmbox tells you that MP3 plugins are not installed, close Rhythmbox and reopen it. You should not have to install anything extra through Rhythmbox.

Despite this extra step, playing the most common audio and video file formats – including Flash videos on the internet – is simple. All the software comes installed, you just have to teach them how to read your files.
