Couldn't load plugin (Windows 10)



  • It worked before, but after doing a clean installation of Windows 10 Vivaldi doesn't load the Flash plugin but only states couldn't load plugin. The plugin is shown as installed on the plugin page. Any ideas how to fix this?



  • I seem to have the same problem. Vivaldi seems to use the same plugin as chrome and in chrome it works.

    Installed vivaldi after installing chrome with ninite.

    W10 + Vivaldi 1.0.233.3 (Developer Build) (64-bit)
    Description: Shockwave Flash 18.0 r0
    Version: 18.0.0.209
    Location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\44.0.2403.125\PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll

    Is the path wrong or something along those lines?

    Gotta tinker with this at some point.



  • Ok, you pushed me in the right direction with your post ;)

    I had Chrome final 32bit installed, Vivaldi is installed as 64bit. Looks like Vivaldi 64bit can't use the Flash version that comes with Chrome 32bit.
    I now installed the Chrome beta 64bit and it is working again :)

    Chrome has it's own embedded flash player.

    You have to install the flash player from the adobe site to have the flash player working correctly in Vivaldi, Opium, Chromium and so on, pay attention to use the PPAPI version.



  • I tried that (x86-> x64) also last night but it didn't change anything.

    Edit: Installing flash again solved the problem. Vivaldi still shows that the same plugin is in use.

  • maybe a note should be added that you should install the same version as your chrome install (32bit chrome->32bit vivaldi; 64 bit chrome-> 64bit vivaldi) if vivaldi can't redistribute the ppapi version of flash themselves
