    Hi everyone, I am new around here, I installed Flash for 64 bit from the official site, but sometimes when I am watching videos on YouTube the video dissapers or when I click on the play button it did not respond.

    Good call! Thanks for replyin' here... I didn't know there was more version info.

    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091215 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.6

    It came with the canonical-burned CD, if that tells more...

    OK - I just triple checked - totally identical version as what post 1 says is supported, but this doesn't explain that rt click discrepancy ???

    Re: Adobe Flash install information for AMD64 (December 2009 update)

    I am having trouble with the download link above? When I download the file, and attempt to extract it, I get the following error message:

    SOFTWARE: Archive Manager

    POPUP WINDOW:
    An error occurred while loading the archive.
    Command Line Output:
    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

    Could anyone offer a suggestion? Am I doing something incorrectly? Thank you in advance!

    Don't want to tread on anyones toes her but surely the safest way to get flash player for amd64 is to backport it from Debian Squeeze/Sid. This works for Karmic, is completely reversible, and won't clobber anything else.

    First make sure that any existing installs of flashplayer etc are purged. Note that nspluginwrapper does not always deregister flashplayer so you should check.

    Code:
    nspluginwrapper -l
    and if 'libflash...' etc is there, then remove them
    Code:
    sudo nspluginwrapper -r <the flash bits you still have>
    All removed? Ok you need some of the Ubuntu/Debian packaging tools
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install debhelper cdbs
    Then download the debian source into a new directory somewhere
    Code:
    wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/f/flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-nonfree_2.8.tar.gz http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/f/flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-nonfree_2.8.dsc
    Now use the following steps to extract and build the package:
    Code:
    dpkg-source -x flashplugin-nonfree_2.8.dsc
    cd flashplugin-nonfree-2.8
    dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
    cd ..
    Admire your new package flashplugin-nonfree_2.8_amd64.deb
    Install it with either dpkg or gdebi, e.g.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i flashplugin-nonfree_2.8_amd64.deb

    Same problem here as Hilko and LazyEyeFIME: Flash videos like this one do not respond to clicks, so they cannot be played, unless they start automatically when the page loads. Can anyone shed any light on this issue? That would be much appreciated.

    I'm running:
    Intel Core2
    Karmic 9.10, 64 bit
    Firefox 64 bit
    Flash plug-in 10,0,42,34

    Deeday

    I can view this flash flawlessly under both chrome and firefox and from the looks of things have a very similar system to you.

    I use the flashplugin package from Debian Squeeze/Sid installed as per my instructions above. At install time, the package downloads and installs the flashplugin for the correct arch. It is the way ubuntu used to install flash.

    There is no need to worry about using packages from Debian. Almost every Ubuntu package was born as a Debian package - in fact the majority are completely unchanged and simply require a rebuild to function perfectly. E.g. the google chrome packages installs under both Debian and Ubuntu and works well in each.

    rememberthemer,

    Thanks for those instructions above. It took me two tries, but that was because I still had flash showing up in Firefox add-ons from trying the previous method (with downloader script) from this thread.

    Once I removed libflashplayer.so from ~/.mozilla/plugins/ I installed the package generated from your commands and successfully got the confirmation of 10,0,42,34 installed at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    Hooray!
