    flash mozilla plugin

    Is there a better alternative Flash player plugin for mozilla other than Adobe?

    Thank you.

    There's Gnash, but don't expect it to be better than Adobe's

    http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/

    EDIT: I think the package is called 'mozilla-plugin-gnash' in the repos.

    Unfortunately, there isn't.

    There is Gnash as already mentioned and lightspark, but they never worked well for my needs. I haven't tested them recently tho.

    If you are experiencing problems with flash, then install my Flash-Aid and run the extension wizard. It will detect installed flash plugins, remove them and install the best option according to your system architecture and version. Additionally, it will apply some tweaks that should improve performance and fix common issues.

    If you use YouTube frequently, get my FlashVideoReplacer extension. It replaces the flash player with a better media plugin, if you have one installed. I recommend installing gecko-mediaplayer to be used with FVR. More info on my site http://www.webgapps.org/add-ons/flashvideoreplacer

    Flash aid is amazing... especially if you are running 64 bit Ubuntu. its the only way to get the 64bit flash drivers and not the cobbled together 32bit driver that crashes.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    thank you so much everyone. Yeah, I have a 64bit and adobe flash always crashes, or the cpu goes nuts. Hopefully, this will fix the situation and be better.
