Chrome/Chromium will be no use because it insists on using the latest flash, the one you can't use. Did you follow my instructions exactly?

@ mcmorj

I am surprise how a simple program like flash is giving you issues. I installed flash both manually and by using the package manager in many recent years and even today and it has worked great for me.

Have you consider trying another distro. Mint and PClinuxOS have flash pre-installed and configured. You can try a liveCD to test out the distro without installing it.

Talking Workaround in effect by....

....installing SUSE 12.2 on another PC I have - a Pentium 4 HT.

This Pentium PC machine runs youtube fine without any issues so the reason does indeed appear to be the missing instruction from the AMD 32bit Arch CPU.

I will see if I can get Flash 10 installed on my AMD to get around the Youtube (Flash 11) problem.

I know I said this before, but have you tried testing another distro to see how flash behaves, All you need is a liveCD and you don't need to install the distro. Remember PClinuxOS and Mint have flash installed and configured in the liveCD.

Having grappled with this problem myself for the last few weeks, I did some research into it. My impressions are these:

- Google purchased Flash from Adobe and have incorporated it into the Google Chrome web browser using a different API than that used by Firefox (PPAPI vs. NPAPI),

- If you want proper Flash support under 64 bit Linux right now, your only choice is to use Google Chrome,

- The general consensus among developers seems to be that Flash will be dead within 5 years, so why bother with it?

Sorry, I should have read the thread a little better. No it won't work, you need 32 bit flash.

Have you check on the SUSE forums? I found this, see if it works for you, http://software.opensuse.org/package/flash-player
