Need newest flash player for Mint Chromium browser


Chromium browser in Mint 17.1 won't run videos. Message says need to update flash player. Can't seem to find the right update. Is there one out there?

Welcome to LQ!!!

You can download the latest one from Adobe's official site. Once downloaded and installed make sure it shows enabled in the browser. You can check that by opening the browser and in the address bar typing: "aboutlugins" without quotes.

hope this does not interfere with Mint's own flashplayer updater which does seem to kick eventually.

No, that does not work for chromium. You need the pepperflashplugin-nonfree package, and if it's already installed, you may need to manually update it (the package itself is just a script to download Chrome and extract its Flash plugin).
Code:
sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install

This is almost the Debian format for adobe-flash updates:

I thought peppermint/pepper used a adobeflash updater that was visable on synaptic but that updated automatically anyway.

Another option is to use get-flash-videos with the url to what flash film you want to view but I think you need to download it first.

Adobe is a pain, it has control over a lot of video sources but will only let you use it if you agree to a lot of tracking and tracing.
