View Full Version : [all variants] Another Fix For Flash on Opera

August 28th, 2009, 01:06 AM
I know there are many posts and threads about getting Flash to Work in Opera, but I found another way to get it to work, and I thought I would let everybody know. It does not involve removing or installing anything. This is what I did:

Open Opera
Click on Tools-Preferences
Go To The Advanced Tab
Click on Downloads (left side)
find the one that says 'application/x-shockwave-flash'
Click Edit
At the bottom it says Use Plugin
select the one that says: 'Shockwave Flash - /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so'
Click OK twice to exit out.

I had three selections under here, the other two said flashplayer alternative, or something to that effect. As soon as I clicked on the one above, it all started working. I tried it on Youtube, y8.com, and on the Adobe test site. No Problems.
