Manually means going to this site:

http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

clicking "download flash player" (to the right)

saving to desktop and once it's downloaded, run the file. It will ask you to close your browsers etc and install.

weird, okay as long as you got it working :)

Just wanted to see if there was something funny about the site you were trying to view.

yup got it downloaded i think it was shockwave which loaded no problem from internet explorer, then I went downlaoded the shockwave on firefox and that worked so i think that must be why it had missing plugins but got the 10.1 verison now thanks again for your help much appreciated

Just be aware (perhaps not the situation here) that there are many, many fake porno sites which display only thumbnails and don't really have any of the videos they claim. When you try to play the video they tell you you need the latest flash plugin and provide a link to 'flashplugin.exe' which is actually a trojan or fake AV.
