Adobe FlashPlayer Plugin
It's weird! On Linux KDE neon 8.8 with the newest Snapshot (today!) the flashplayer plugin works o.k. when accessing the ORF-TVthek to play stuff.
Now I try to do the same on on another PC (Debian Stretch with the same Vivaldi browser installed) and get the message "Adobe Flash Player ist veraltet" (= Adobe... is outdated). Any ideas?
Thanks for your help and greetings from Salzburg, Austria (my! it's cold her at the moment!)
Perhaps you have installed a old FlashPlayer package/updater on Debian.
I install on my Debians the newest FlashPlayer (PPAPI) with Ruarís script from https://gist.github.com/ruario/215c365facfe8d3c5071
The new Chromium 62 settings seem to break Vivaldi Flash settings.
vivaldi://settings/content/flashonly accept block & ask 1st. While Vivaldi settings still using the old method (3 options).
I see no effect from both Chromium & Vivaldi in 1.13.1008.3 snapshot 64-bit and we need to "explicitly" choose Allow Flash for a site (globe or padlock).
@hstoellinger Why do you need FlashPlayer at ORF-TVthek? It play with HTML5 video without Flash.
By the way - trying to show a programme of a different station works o.k..
I am at a loss
Have you try pepperflash instead?
Sorry for bothering you! I have now downloaded the latest flashplayer-plugin and copied everything to /usr/bin/adobe-flashplugin. Now it works o.k.
I use the Vivaldi 1.13.1008 snapshot.
adobe-flashplugin? I never heard of it.
All I know, Chromium-based only need
libpepflashplayer.solibrary. Easy if you have GChrome, because any Chromium-based wrapper like
/usr/bin/vivaldi[-snapshot]search GChrome profile 1st then any other common places if you install the library by other mean.
It's more confusing because you put it inside
