Is there a Flash alternative being work, or already existing?
It saddens me that Adobe is no longer supporting Linux!!

Hi there
I have stopped using that thing a while ago. I use the HTML5 video viewer. If you watch some YT (as I do) then setting that up for HTML5 is easy, YT provdes a page for that
Way back when I started, I used to have gnash instaled...I doubt if it's still active though...
Save for a few stuborn and backward sites (de redactie being one of them) pretty much anything flashy is within reach...

Hi.

VLC I think has a plugin too tho you can't speed the videos up like if downloaded them. https://search.creativecommons.org/

I use Prime, HULU and such so feel forced in to Chrome these days, at lest we can still install a script blocker. Have fun!

While not an alternative, you can use the freshplayer wrapper to use the pepperflash plugin in Firefox. I use it on my Debian machines, and it works great for me.
