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 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.
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.
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.
