        I won't stop using Linux just because Livemocha is not "supported" by Linux! Ubuntu is far much better than Window$ and Macinto$h, and I won't stop using it just because your site is not "supported" by this wonderful OS! Please fix this ridiculous lack of compatibility with Linux, otherwise, I think I'd better stop using your site! I stopped using it for so long, and now that I'm back with a new account, it happens not to be "supported" on Linux?!!! What's this about? Are you going back in time or something like that?!!! As I just said, or you fix this bug, or I'll end up stopping to use your site!

        Thank you!

        A site with flash support required. It is almost 2014. Are you moving back in time at livemocha?

        Well, together with 'Linux support in progress' (It's a fricking WEB PAGE. The web was DESIGNED to make things platform independent!!! You actually HAVE to spend additional time to make it locked down for only two OSes </rant>). I am done with this site.

        With Firefox download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/

        Add the following user agent to its preferences: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/29.0.1547.2 Safari/537.36

        Then on the livemocha site select that user agent.

        You should then be able to login.

        I'm using flash version 11,2,202,297. Everything works except microphone.

        I'm using it on debian wheezy, all goes OK. I've only changed my browser's UA to some windows UA to get possibility to log in.

        For linux users: Change the User Agent string to something like this:

        Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/29.0.1547.2 Safari/537.36

        In chrome it's easy. Press F12, click the small gear-icon in the lower right corner. Go to Overrides, check User Agent, choose Other in the drop-down, and paste the string above.
        The new version of LM has a terrible javascript memory leak, it sucks up all my memory at once. Somehow I got past the login-screen, and was able to choose 'legacy mode'.

        Same here, Livemocha doesn't work on Ubuntu 12.04. Funny thing is, that it did work on Ubuntu one or two years ago, when I first signed up. Everything worked just fine, the audio features, even recording from headphones worked. So somebody seemed to made the decision to remove a feature that is already there, for no obvious reasons. I wonder what that person thought? "You know what, let's ditch the Linux users. We will have to rework the site, yes, and we will loose about 3% of our users, but hey, that new plattform-dependent plattform just looks shiny!"

        Same problem as well. Flash does not work so I do not user Livemocha for the moment :(

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I cannot us e LiveMocha because of the Flash requirement.
        So I won't help anybody and wiil end stopping to use it.

      • MellandaMellanda commented  · 

        i have the same problem, why are you so ignorant livemocha?

      • alvarkoalvarko commented  · 

        For archlinux and chromium browser:

        Install chromium-pepper-flash (or chromium-pepper-flash-stable) from aur

        Disable all other flash plugins:
        Type chrome://plugins/ in the adress bar and press Enter
        Click on Details button on the top right
        Click on Disable near all the Flash plugins except the first one

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        Better, get rid of flash (but if you could just disable that lousy test…)

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        So how's the porting to flash 11.2 going?.. Wanted to correct an exercice today. I won't, cause I can't !!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        This is ridiculous. Users (many of them paying users) being ignored because they use Linux. Can I get a refund?

      • LorenzoLorenzo commented  · 

        PLEASE READ :)

        For anyone having problems watching the videos...follow these simple steps:

        1) Open the source code of the LiveMocha page with the video...you'll find a string like this:

        flashvars['videoUrl'] = 'http%3A%2F%2Fptr2.prod.cf.static-livemocha.com%2Fcommon2%2Fcontent%2Factive%2Fes-mx%2Fc_1%2Fv_100%2Fes_6_1.flv';

        It's easy to spot among the others as it ends in FLV.

        2) Convert the HTML entities back to text with an online tool like this: http://entities.online-toolz.com/tools/text-html-entities-convertor.php (second form)

        3) You'll get this, ready to be opened with VLC or any other video player:

        http://ptr2.prod.cf.static-livemocha.com/common2/content/active/es-mx/c_1/v_100/es_6_1.flv

        Thanks.

        I'm sick of livemocha. Could anyone tell me about another page to learn languages?

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I wonder why does Live Mocha require Flash 11.3. Is it so cutting edge that requires the absolutely newest version? I believe they may be investing in the new, for now Chrome only, version but guys, you just need to remove an unnecessary verification!
