Help: flashplayer on opera ( FreeBSD )


hi everybody

my problem is i cant get youtube or whatever flash videos to run inside my
browser ( Opera ).

im on freeBSD, and i've installed flashplayer4.x.x from the ports collection but they
didn't work either.

i went into adobe flash website to download the current package wich is flashplayer
10 in a tar.gz file. and whenever i try to decompress the file i get a broken
"libflashplayer.so" file. without the install-sh file they talk about in the other threads
i red.

i downloaded a good "libflashplayer.so" of flashplayer_v6 and tried to make "opera"
the browser to take it from the preferences but "NO" it seems like the file is not
ready yet to be recognized by the "opera".

they've also mentioned "nswrapper" but i couldnt get it from the ports.
AND I"VE HAD IT.

please help, thank you

How many versions of flash do you see under Preferences--> Advanced--> Content--> Plug-in Options?

Check if you have this file at this location: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so if you do copy it to: /usr/lib/opera/plugins. That sorted it for me.

It has (clearly) been awhile since I've run a FreeBSD desktop, but based on a little research on freshports, here is what I would try:
  1. Install the native www/opera port.
  2. Install the www/opera-linuxplugins port.

to be honest,
I've never got good performance for such like.
I use opera flash and it just doesn't really do it.

I dual boot linux or use a linux live disk when I want to play
with youtube.
or use the wife's mac.

sad but true.

i thank everyone who posted a reply here.
im still strugllin with it. i've tried all the above EXCEPT using Wine.
and when i try to install somethings i feel like going inside a loop.
everything depending on something, and so on..........
i will take a breath for a few days. and try again.
what realy annoyed me is that i was able to nswrapp flashplayer9 but 10
is not. sometimes i get that its not NAPI compatible, and another i get
that libnss3 is needed and its already installed. ld flags are correct.
i've ran ldconfig. and so on. its so irritating.

thanx again guys.

The easiest way to get flash on BSD is to run windoze Firefox/Opera in wine. Wine is working quite well on FreeBSD now. You can also run a native Firefox/Opera for those sites with no flash or don't want flash.

Or read the posts and give other suggestions a try.
