Flash Player Question
I want to view a webcast but when I tried to watch it I got a message stating that flash player needed to be installed with a link to Adobe's Flash player download site. That site contained links for Adobe Flash player v11.2 for several operating systems including Linux [which I use] in YUM, .tar.gz, .rpm versions & APT for Ubuntu 10.04+ but not in the .deb version that I need. I also found a disturbing note saying that their v11.2 would be the last version that will work with Linux distros except for security backports. So, is there a viable alternative to Adobe Flash player that has .deb versions? I also have this problem when trying to view videos on Facebook. If this isn't fixable now, I hope it's corrected by the time a stable version of Vivaldi is out. Thanks!
You need to install the PepperFlashPlayer for Vivaldi.
sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
For some information about Flash you can take a look at this thread and this page: https://packages.debian.org/wheezy-backports/pepperflashplugin-nonfree or a little more detailed there: https://wiki.debian.org/PepperFlashPlayer
I installed Chrome & Pepper flash player per your instructions & it didn't work[!]. So I started to reply & ask what to do next but I decided to reboot the computer & try it again first [keep in mind that I'm a Linux newbie]. Anyway, I'm happy to report that I'm now able to watch Facebook & other videos. Thanks!
