    flashplayer sse2

    Hello,
    my english is not so very good,but I`ll try.I`m a very linux-beginner.I`ve installed Ubuntu12.04 on my pc.
    At time I can`t look flash-streams on youtube or on tv -channel.I heard about that this doesn`t work in linux,if you you don`t have a
    cpu with sse2.(athlon xp 1800)
    But when I boot with an antix-live-cd ,I can look every youtube-stream and so on.
    So there must be a possibility.Can someone help me?
    Ok,thanks

    If the live cd includes a old version of flash which doesn't require sse2 in the cpu,then it might well work

    Somewhere, someone will have a download available I think it's version 10.3 of flash you need
    I think, Linux Mint in it's 13 release, which is the same as 12.04 in Ubuntu, has this old flash in it's repos

    I think I found it
    http://download.macromedia.com/pub/f...90_archive.zip

    You will need to extract the archive and you just need the file

    First remove the current flash plugin, which will have been installed if you have installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras

    copy the new file first to your home folder

    then open a terminal and do

    Code:
    sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer

    Hello,
    this didn`t work,because the terminal allways told me,that this is an old version (error),but I found a pagehttp://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=89675.This worked.Anyway,thank you for your friendly help.

    Re: flashplayer sse2

    I've been reading the advices on the debian forum and here

    The no SSE2 11.2.x lib recommanded there is the 11.2.202.236 from June 2012 ([http://www.adobe.com/support/securit....html]security bulletin[/url])

    When I see the so many critical security issues in Flash Player ( http://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerabil...sh-Player.html ), we should STOP to recommend any old 11.2 lib!

    The lastest 10.x is already better, one year younger: the version 10.3.183.90 was released on 2013-06-11 (fix CVE-2013-3343)
    But it is probably also affected by more recent bugs.

    So the more secure way would be to go with the free alternative Gnash
    or hope than Adobe fix the compilation flag of the 11.2.202.xx releases.

    Totally agree that old flash is a security risk that should never be recommended. But gnash is a waste of time and space that never works except maybe on one or two demo videos on Youtube(along with lightspark), it is a non solution.

    The best though imperfect solution in this case would be Viewtube http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/87011, it works better than flash when it works, but only on a few popular sites (Youtube is the big one) You may also want to install the toggle-mixed-active-content addon for Firefox so it won't block the media plugin backend for Viewtube. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...ctive-content/
