Yes, you probably want to install the Flash plugin for Firefox to view videos.

  2. In the menu titled "Select version to download...", select the "YUM for Linux" option.
  3. You should see a button appear with the text "Download Now". Click on the button.
  4. You should be prompted to install a RPM package with a name like adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm. Click OK.
  5. You will have to enter your password to install this RPM package.
  6. After this package has been installed, start a Terminal.
  7. At the command line in the Terminal, enter the command "sudo yum -y install flash-plugin".
  8. You will be prompted to enter your password.
  9. Restart Firefox.
  10. Direct the browser to and watch a video.

Alternatively, you can install the Chromium browser which comes with a Flash player. See the instructions at the following URL for installing Chromium.
