What? No Flash!
You guys are kidding right.? Just another beta to use the customers good will and 'test' the system and tell them what's wrong. An internet experience without 'Flash'???
It uses the pepper flash plugin, the same as Chrome and Opera
Vivaldi does not have a flash compiled in itself!
The pepper-flash plugin for chromium has to be installed.
How about Mageia? I think it's slurping through Cauldron right now, but when will it become available, I wonder???
How about Mageia?
Install google-chrome, it is dirty but it's work, or use this
Well, I downloaded it, unzipped it, plopped it in /usr/bin/ and checked the "Is executable" box in "Permissions", ran it and restarted Vivaldi, and hey, Presto!* - Flash is now working!
- Whoops… LOL
Two thumbs up, sir!
To sum this up. Vivaldi uses the Pepper Flash plug-in. We are currently not able to ship with this plug-in and the only other provider is Chrome. This is not much different from how it worked in Opera which used the same Flash plugin as Firefox (and others). We are not happy with a situation where you have to install another browser to get Flash to work, but that is where we're at for the time being.
We are hoping this situation will change. And the end we are hoping that Flash will lose out to more open standards, but that may take some time. In the meantime we have to share with Chrome, or is it the other way around?
