    Flash help needed

    So I divided my partition in two with Gnome CentOS as the second option but can't seem to get flash to work in either chromium or Firefox. I was trying to view a Twitch stream. On Firefox, I can hear audio from Iheart radio though.

    Here is what I've tried.
    # rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-re ... noarch.rpm
    # rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
    yum update
    # yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl
    sudo yum install flash-plugin alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl

    Any ideas are welcome.

    just an update. Flash works on Youtube and audio and videos play. I can hear sound on Twitch but can see no video.

    Flash is not needed and most people do not use flash for youtube any more but html5; are you sure your system is really using flash for them?

    I'm honestly not sure. I would think that if html did not work, I wouldn't be able to hear audio or see video in Firefox or Chrome?

    Right click in a youtube video window and tell us what you see; if using flash you will see something about flash settings, if html5 you will see other items in a simple menu, including, at the top "copy video URL"

    So as I expected you are using html5 for youtube; nothing to do with flash.

    I do not know CentOS so am unable to give you more info about how to install it, but I presume you have looked at the CentOS forums; https://www.centos.org/forums/

    What did you find there?

    Basically the same things we walked through except instead of sudo, they use yum to install. If I'm thinking right, if I can hear the audio but not see the video, it's something to do with the video playback I'm assuming ?.
