Pepper Flash plugin for Chromium browser

A few sites require the the newer version of Adobe Flash with the Pepper API.

This is included in the closed Chrome browser package, but it can also be used with the open source Chromium browser from which Chrome is derived. The Pepper API is not supported by Firefox.

There are packages available for some distros, but it can also be installed manually.

First download the current Chrome package to suit your architecture, eg:
Code:
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable-current_i386.deb
Then pull out the Flash plugin:
Code:
ar p google-chrome-stable-current_i386.deb data.tar.lzma | unxz | tar xf - ./opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash
Copy the Flash plugin to Chromium:
Code:
cp opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so /usr/lib/chromium/plugins
Set the plugin to be the default for Flash:
Code:
vi /etc/chromium/default
  CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--password-store=detect --ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib/chromium/plugins/libpepflashplayer.so"
