    Question Re: Flash update today not working.

    I just downgraded to the previous version by uninstalling the updated problematic packages 'adobe-flashplugin' and 'adobe-flash-properties-gtk' (11.2.202.228) and installing the last working version (11.1.102.63). You can download them here: http://ubuntu.wbac.ac.th/archive-can...lugin/?C=M;O=D

    Let's see if next updates fix the issue.

    Flash-Aid can do all that for you as well. Get the flash player version you need from Adobe. Extract the archive, find the tar.gz file corresponding to your architecture and copy it (don't extract it). Open Flash-Aid Advanced mode, select "Custom" in the installation option, paste the tar.gz path in the field. Click the Script tab, then Execute. Flash-Aid will remove all installed flash versions and install the one from the tar.gz file in the proper location.
    I have been struggling for days to restore flash and had almost given up hope but the above method worked superbly..

    Re: Flash update today not working.

    To unsmurf my web-flash I disabled hardware acceleration. I didn't like to do that, though I assume that it will be fixed soon.

    Another (maybe subsequently) odd thing is that there is something off with the buffer/rendering of flash since today.

    You guys probably know why (hardware acceleration right) but flash lags and stutters/ audio sync is off when reaching the end of its buffer.

    I have tried all combinations of adobeflashplugins possible. What do you suggest I should have installed?

    flashplugin-installer 11.2.202.228ubuntu1

    or

    gnash/lightspark

    or

    adobe-flashplugin

    or/and

    nonfree-extra sound?

    Move libflashplayer.so to folder usr/lib/flashplugin-installer

    Worked on the chromium, firefox, seamonkey, midori
    I have done this and it works for me... as long as I'm logged in as root. If I use another account it no longer works. What have I missed?

    Re: Flash update today not working.

    A tiny detail from my “adobe flash” travails that might perhaps be of use to someone...


    I followed yesterday's clear instruction of NEMESISGUS, installing the last working version 11.1.102.63 of both adobe-flashplugin and adobe-flash-properties-gtk. When to my surprise this at first did not work, causing the same black video screen on YouTube as before - indicating presence of a certain “sfwdec” player instead of the expected adobe flash - it finally occurred to me to uninstall the package swfdec-mozilla … and voilà - everything now worked!


    (Before realising that the adobe “update” was to blame, over few days I had been installing a lot of unnecessary stuff - including the “toxic” swfdec-mozilla - lest it somehow made up what had been lacking... )


    The great help from this forum is one of the reasons I stick with Ubuntu.

    That is one of the reasons I develop Flash-Aid. It removes, swfdec, gnash, lightspark, adobe flashplugin installed manually and even flash for Windows installed by Wine, so that kind of conflict doesn't happen when you use it. If the user has some weird flash installed somewhere else, the add-on can detect it when generating the report provided by the Help menu, so it makes easier to troubleshoot.

    BTW, Adobe has purged the last beta from the server, so Flash-Aid is delivering the nasty 11.2.202.228 version as well. If you are using it and it fails to download flash, click the "Check Upate" button, in the extension menu and wait a few seconds to get a confirmation.

    Downgrade flash using Flash-Aid. After installing the extension, get the flash player version you need from Adobe. Extract the archive, find the tar.gz file corresponding to your architecture and copy it (don't extract it). Open Flash-Aid Advanced mode, select "Custom" in the installation option, paste the tar.gz path in the field. Click the Script tab, then Execute. Flash-Aid will remove all installed flash versions and install the one from the tar.gz file in the proper location.

    Re: Flash update today not working.

    Hi, I have been without a flash player for a week or more....It first happened after I downloaded a flash update that came up in my update manager for the 11.10 installation that I had been running successfully for quite some time.
    After the update thingy was installed flash would not work at all. I tried all sots of different ways to get it going again, using the software centre, by downloading the tar gz from the adobe download site etc...
    I tried Flash-aid. again and again. Searched forums...

    Nothing worked. So I decided to do a complete reinstall and revert to Maverick, thinking it had to be yet another buggy issue with Onereic. I tried everything I know,
    (not a lot, I'm a 60's relic nearly 70 years of age)
    I found I still could not get Flash to work within that freshly installed distro (10.10 which used to work okay), still no luck.
    Can't understand why it does not go, I have 2 other machines in my household running on 10.04 natty they are both a-okay.
    HTML5 vids work alright, can anyone tell me what is happening to flash player?

    I meant to include this attachment which consists of the actual report generated at my last install and use of Flash-aid...Hope someone will be able to figure out what is happening here!

    At he risk of completely exposing the inner workings of my browser I think I had better attatch another file which goes into some detail. I hope It helps one of you brainy people to unpick my problem
