Ok thanks I upgraded to 8.04 I think successfully although it said it 
had some problems and failed to totally update and that my computer may 
be unable to start ... I reran update manager and it updated several 
packages and seems to be working ok. I do have Firefox 3.0 and it played 
that video. LOL, that server was probably my DSL since the upgrade 
download took 3 hours sometimes getting down below 100kbs
