Are you guys running the latest Flash Player 188.8.131.52?
Unfortunately, Flashplayer SlackBuild won't work for me. It passes the clean instal, in other words, the script *SBo.tgz is executed and its libflashplayer.so file appears in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder.
However, the plugin made by the script is dead for me as if I would put libflashplayer.so file directly from Adobe site into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder.
The bottom line: Video won't play.
P.S. Some penguins from other distros complain about dead Adobe Flash Player 11 as well, so it's not my own environment 13.37 32-bit, FF 11.0 causing the problem.
My story started with Flashplayer SlackBuild experience.
I just deleted libflashplayer.so made by Flashplayer SlackBuild and I run your script, install goes smoothly and I get another ( yours ) libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder.
However, nothing positive yet happens. FF reads "Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 Last Updated 04/11/2012" ( just as it was reading with Flashplayer SlackBuild either with the vanilla-plain latest libflashplayer.so from Adobe download page ).
meantime I deleted libflashplayer.so from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, downloaded and extracted firefox-11.0.tar.bz2 in /home/user_name/ , made directory /home/user_name/firefox/plugins and dropped there libflashplayer.so
Still no lack, that out-of-the-box FF reads "Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 Last Updated 04/20/2012" but no video is playing.
It's definitely Adobe's issue
All I need is to find some workaround. No more, no less.

On the other hand, a month ago Adobe put patched Flash Player version 10.3 for those who are unable to update to 11.2, as they say. That libflashplayer.so works fine in konqueror and FF, it plays video and http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ reads "You have version 10,3,183,18 installed"
The latest Adobe Flash Player 11 update was on April 14, patched Flash Player 10.3 came on March 29 but didn't get updated on April 14. In other words, let's assume that Flash Player 10.3 is already obsolete.
I guess that Adobe plans to kill penguins one by one and started with me
Exactly in this moment I have been installing Slackware 13.37 KDE 32 bit on my new computer; after that, I have been installing the same flashplayer pugin of yours and it works.
Footpath: downloaded from Adobe site the plugin (tar.gz), after that I have been copyng the file ".so" to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
I am running FF 12 now. Sure enough, I extracted .so file from the latest Adobe tar.gz and it won't work.
I dumped that libflashplayer.so in a Trash. As a matter of fact, there are so many dumped .so files, no more Trash room for others.
Jokes aside, only Adobe Flash 10.3 works for me. As Adobe put it, the patched Flash 10.3 is for those who are unable to update to 11.2
But the future definitely looks bright. While running without that damned plugin, I noticed that the newest Google Analytics version works without Flash at all. In other words, we are still young enough to see the death of Adobe Flash.
