US Weather Bureau video displays have stopped working
 
My PC has up-to-date Debian stable on it. Although the CPU chip is
Intel, the kernel is "AMD64". Here is an URL for a U. S. Weather Bureau
radar site:


http://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=lwx&product=N0R&overlay=11101111&loo p=yes

This should show a time-lapse loop for the radar in Sterling, Virginia.
Recently this has stopped working. Does anybody know what the problem is?

Up-to-date Debian Sid works with Iceweasel, Opera and even gGaleon(!).

This is okay, and not a CPU problem

Also works here.

Ensure your browser is giving preference to the Flash Player plugin over
Gnash.

I installed flashplugin-nonfree and the problem went away with no
changes in IceWeasel's settings. I suspect that the security update for
gnash had something to do with the problem.

Yes, I discovered some time ago, that when it comes to Firefox plugins
"times matter". That is, the most updated plugin file there exists takes
preference over others so if your gnash plugin was updated recently, it
will become the default for the browser.

I have solved this by "touching" the ".so" file and thus updating its
"last modified" date:

touch .mozilla/firefox/*.default/plugins/libflashplayer.so

It's like magic. After that (and having restarted the browser), the flash
player plugin reclaims its realm.
