The video played fine in Firefox (firefox-17.0.3,1) & Shockwave Flash
(11.1 r102) plugin (there is also a "FutureSplash Player" plugin).
Initially there was a purple window with small circular ">" (play)
button but nothing was being displayed; audio of the original video
started playing by itself. Few seconds later, the purple window

Opera (opera-12.14), OTOH, reported that flash plugin
(opera-linuxplugins-12.14; linux-f10-flashplugin-11.2r202.275)
