    Chromium flash player update?

    I like using the Chromium web browser but i am constantly being informed to update Adobe Flash Player. Is there a plug in i could install?

    Those warnings are pretty standard for linux-flash
    But just to be sure you can go this site and check.

    I have version 19,0,0,226 installed which is current.

    In Trusty 14.04, fully updated I am running flash 17,0,0,188 according to that Adobe link.

    I have no idea if or how I can get version 19,0,0,226, but in any case I do not get any warnings about flash being out of date.

    Early on in testing 14.04 This was kind of up in the air, But that said I use this method for pepperflash on chromium.

    Rather than garble what I said why not link to it?

    I'm not 100% sure the adobe-flashplugin package keeps the Chromium flash plugin up-to-date, but that is what the wiki.ubuntu.com links seem to imply. If they do, I'd far rather use the partner repository than a PPA, using instructions which are over 2 years old.

    Re: Chromium flash player update?

    I also believe that the ppa is no longer needed for the later versions of Ubuntu which have a pepperflashplugin-installer in the default repos, but I wonder if the ppa version still gets a later version of pepperflash than the default repos version?

    Very odd situation that I do not have an answer for.

    That PPA I trust if that means anything..Been using it for a couple of years.
    But if you had installed pepperflash using default repos and showing a lower version??
    Indeed an Odd situation.

    Definitely true that adobe-flashplugin keeps both the Firefox-compatable and Chromium-compatable plugins up to date. See also post #6 in this thread 6 days ago:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2299231
    Chromium on Linux Mint has been using this too for some time. Currently, this method has Firefox version at 11,2,202,540 and Chromium version at 19,0,0,226.

    The pepperflashplugin-nonfree is deprecated. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Chromium/Getting-Flash

    Thanks Dennis.

    I was not aware that Adobe-flash was the package to use again and still had pepperflashplugin-nonfree installed.

    You still need freshplayer-plugin for the pepperflash to work in firefox or you still get version 11, but now with adobe-flash installed I have flash 19.0.0.226 in both browsers.

    Does this mean that adobe have now started development of flash again for Linux or is the Linux version of adobe-flash package produced by our own developers?

    Re: Chromium flash player update?

    I was not familiar with freshplayer-plugin, but if that uses pepperflash instead of adobe flash, that could explain the 19.0.0.226 flash version (unless it masquerades the real flash version). My Goggle Chrome has that version, but Firefox has the most recent Linux version of Adobe flash 11.2.202.540.

    I would be curious if hulu.com works at all with freshplayer-plugin? Since Hulu started their current DRM, Linux Google Chrome does not work because that is not supported by Linux pepperflash. And Adobe flash in Firefox requires installing hal for Hulu's DRM to work.

    Google Chrome works for Netflix, but that does not use flash. That is using HTML5 instead of the MS Silverlight that Netflix required previously.
