Adobe Flash out of date

  • I use Opera-stable 45.0.2552.812, Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) (x86_64; GNOME)
    I have added file libpepflashplayer.so (25.0.0.171) into /usr/lib/opera/plugins
    I have cleaned cache, cookies and restarted Opera, but I get Adobe Flash out of date!
    How can I fix it?

  • Opera looks in these locations to find its plugins, so please move it there

    $ cat /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/resources/pepper_flash_config.json
    {
      "PepperFlashPaths" : [
        "/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/usr/lib64/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/usr/lib/chromium-browser/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/usr/lib/chromium/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/usr/lib64/chromium-browser/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/usr/lib64/chromium/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/opt/google/chrome-beta/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/opt/google/chrome-unstable/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
        "/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so"    
    

    ]

  • jimunderscorep, thank you very much! I added my route to pepper_flash_config.json and deleted others. It helped me! :up:

  • And the next time opera updates itself, it will replace the file and you will have to do it again.

    I remember when I had this problem, I launched opera like so

    opera --ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib/chromium/flashplayer-chromium/libpepflashplayer.so
    

    Then I contacted my distro's maintainer and he moved libpepflashplayer.so from there to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so, making it visible to opera with no parameters. He also said that this location is what adobe suggests.

    From the readme file provided in the tar.gz

    Installing using the plugin tar.gz:
    Unpack the plugin tar.gz and copy all the files to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/

  • Ok, I added libpepflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin as well.

  • Besides, I had to replace libffmpeg.so becuase youtube said, my Opera didn't support h.264, so I downloaded opera-ffmpeg-codecs-58.0.3029.81-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz from repo.herecura.eu/herecura/x86_64/... and now everything is all right!

  • Hmmm...
    A library, taken from a package that is made for arch linux, built quite possibly with different dependencies and in a different build enviroment? No thanks, I'll pass :)

  • There is a command line to discover the path what opera's uses to know where the flash is installed? I can't find where libpepflashplayer.so is.

  • Did you check the folders I mention above?

    Thank you so much for pointing that out! I am finally able to play h.264 videos with opera on my fedora machine!
