How to install the latest flash player for Chromium ?


Hi,
I am using Debian Jessie. I want to install the latest flash player for Chromium.

I have added backports to sources.list

Code:
deb  http://deb.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src  http://deb.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free

deb  http://deb.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src  http://deb.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main 
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org jessie main non-free
How do I install the latest flash player for Chromium and how to make sure Chromium has actually detected the plugin and using it ?

Chromium has built-in HTML5.

Your best bet would be to go to the Adobe site and follow instructions for Chromium. I'm not using Chromium for some time now, but that is how I've got it with Chromium.

Hi...

I'm assuming in this case you don't have any version of Pepperflash installed. While I can't guarantee it will work for you, you can try the solution I offered another member (who had the same issue) in post #2 here. This solution worked for me in getting Pepperflash installed and working, however, as the solution was for another distribution, it may or may not work for you.

Regards...

Hi, I guess you just have to install flashplayer plugin on your system and then activate it in Chrome.

Check these out:
https://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer

First link no, because of this:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugr...cgi?bug=851066

In that bug report there are some solutions too. Might be worth checking. Personally, I gave up on flash in firefox and chromium and just use chrome when flash is really needed.

I use pepperflash for Chromium in Arch. There must be a package for it in Debian.

Cheers,
