[Solved]Opera 39 Stable requesting to update flash

  • Hi I am running Opera Stable on Ubuntu 16.04 64Bit, and until the update to Opera 39 had no problems playing back Flash videos.
    I can see that all options in settings and plug-ins support the play back of Flash content.
    I have no problems playing content in Google Chrome stable, or Firefox Stable
    In Opera I see messaging advising that Flash Player needs updating.

    Can anyone advise what is causing this please?

    Many thanks for your help

  • I have now resolved this as follows:

    Identified that Pepperflashplugin-Nonfree was Version 21 in Ubuntu repos, as the version of Chromium is 51 and Opera 39 is based on Chromium 52.

    To resolve the issue, I downloaded the .Deb file from the PPA available here:-

    Note - at the time of writing the PPA owner has not yet added 16.04 to his PPA, so do not add the PPA but downloading the .Deb file resolves the issue.
