How to inspect plugins in the Opera browser?

  • Greetings,

    Due to certain changes in Chromium — the browser on which Opera is based — it seems that the opera://plugins isn't working anymore.[1] However, I would need to inspect the current status of my 'pepperflash-plugin', something I've been having problems with lately.

    What is the alternative way to inspect the installed plugins? In the earlier version where opera://plugins was still in use, the problem was that 'pepperflash-plugin' didn't appear on the list although it was installed properly.

  • Hello @jayaguru-shishya, if you have a problem with Flash on Linux, it might mean that you're trying to play H.264 videos, and in that case the only thing that you can do is to install the package chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra (this is the name on Debian-based distros, YMMV).

    Support for plugins has been dropped, so I think there's no way of inspecting what's installed and what's not.

    HTH.

  • @gianlucac Hi there! Oh, that's a shame xP The flash is running currently running all good (...for now), and in fact installing the chormium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra fixed the problem.

    Cheers!

  • I can not load some games I like to play on facebook because of Opera and Flash player. I just get a blank purple screen when trying to load Hit It Rich Casino Slot game on Facebook using Opera. I used to like Opera and it worked fine up until a month ago. Now I am back to using Chrome because it is the only way I can play the game.
