Flash does not work in Chromium 37, works in Firefox 32 in Mint 17
I have Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 64-bit.
Chromium 37 and Firefox 32 both from official repositories.
Flash refuses to work in Chromium. When I open a flash-containing page (e.g.iPlayer), I see "You need to install Flash Player to play this content." with a button to install. I tried to install it, but it issues an error "The channel 'qiana-partner' is not known". Opening the page apt:adobe-flashplugin (i.e. without channel) issues the message that adobe-flashplugin is already installed. But iPlayer continues to issue the same error, and http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html does not show flash animation.
Google dropped support for NPAPI (Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface) since Chrome/Chromium v.35 in favour of its own pepperflash plugin. Not sure about Mint, but on Debian it's necessary to install the pepperflashplugin-nonfree package from the repositories in order to get flash working on Chromium. Being Mint based on Debian there's probably a similar package there. You can search on your preferred package manager, or issue this command to see if you get any hits:
That's strange. Have you tried checking if it's enabled? Try typing the following in the address bar: chrome://plugins and check whether the plugin is enabled (it should be by default, but you never know). And also, restart Chromium if you haven't done so.
Hello, people. Hello, darkduck. Could you be so kind as to tell me how you can view Flash vids in Firefox? I can't at all. I run openSUSE 13.1 and I have to view Flash with Chromium, vids do not work at all in Firefox unless they are HTML5.
I have pepperflash with Chromium, it runs fine, and if I happen to right-click a vid it says "About Adobe Flashplayer 14.x." In FF it does not run properly at all, and a right-click reveals that it is Adobe Flash Player 11.x - no matter how many times a zypper up updated the Adobe Flash.
