Flash Player for Opera?


I tried to install Macromedia flash player for Opera and it didn't let me saying and did not mention Opera as being supported. So is there another flash player I can use for Opera?

Opera uses Mozilla's plugins and it needs motif to do so. So, install whatever plugins you want in any Gecko-based browser and install motif and Opera will detect and use those plugins.
