Video clips seldom play in Firefox

Video clips do not play in Firefox. Especially clips in BBC news. All I get is a black area where the clips should show. I do not have the same problem in either Chrome or IE

Me too, I don't think Firefox likes Adobe Flash

I use Firefox and don't have problems with embedded videos. I actually have Flash disabled and if it is needed I authorise it on a site for site basis.

Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration? Tools - options - General - Advanced.

Is your graphics driver up to date?

It depends on how you have the settins in the add on. It does sometimes take a while for the Flash to start.
