None of the versions of Opera runs a site with flash even in the block exception list

  • 799/5000
    What the hell is happening with the Opera browser (stable, beta and developer)?
    I use Ubuntu 16.04 x64.
    Even putting a site that uses flash in the content block exception list, still does not enable this plugin.
    Funny that in Chromium nightly I do not even need it.
    In Google Chrome I need to in the excerpt list, but at least if it's in the list it works.
    In Opera neither being in the list it works. And I use the 3 versions and none of them worked.
    Flash will take a lot longer to be completely abandoned.
    And continuing to support this technology will continue to be a differential.
    Unless you consider using the same chromium engine and preventing the use of this plugin even if there is such a possibility in the chromium engine as being a "differential".

  • What is your setting in opera://settings > websites > flash? Do you have any exceptions listed there?
    I have set it to "Ask first before allowing sites to run Flash (recommended)" but on version 49 it seems to ignore it and start them at once.

  • It must have a built-in exception for the Adobe Flash test page as that worked without me having to add it (in Windows, not at my Linux machine right now).

  • @msxmaniac If you click on the link to download Flash, do you see a banner on the top asking you to enable Flash?

  • Note also that Opera requires the 64-bit PPAPI version, not the plugin from Firefox (NPAPI).

  • @sgunhouse I added two screenshots.
    One of Opera Stable (could be Beta or Developer that I also use and have the same problem) and another one of Chromium.
    As Opera uses the Chromium project engine and if in Chromium the Adobe website says that Flash (in this case PPAPI) is installed, enabled and which version why Opera should do the same but does not?

  • @leocg Nope.
    It's redirect to https://get.adobe.com/br/flashplayer/

  • Flash used to work before in Opera? Maybe you could try those instructions?

  • I've had flash stop working only on Opera twice in the past. It's been a while so I don't remember if it happened during an update or what. I do remember that it was working on Chromium. Each time, I fixed it by updating Flash.

    Download the flashplayer from Adobe and extract the file libpepflashplayer.so from it. Copy it to /usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree

    I update flash that way now as it seems the switch to pepflash messes up updates.

    Hope that helps.

  • @leocg I long time ago I switched to adobe-flashplugin and everytime works great including now.
    It appears that something get wrong with opera but Chrome and Chromium works fine.

  • @minuteman I switched long time ago to adobe-flashplugin because that.
    And I ever maintain updated manually if necessary.
    And you forgot to mention that manifest.json its necessary to be updated too or cause a mess.

  • @minuteman If you take a deep look on the screenshots that I have uploaded you perceive that currently I'm using flash version 28.0.0.105 and this is a beta from adobe labs and it's the more recent.

  • These days, Chrome comes with Flash built-in. Chromium is another story, but Flash should work in Chrome as long as it is enabled.

  • @sgunhouse Yep.
    And to use the non-internal version just add the following list of keys getting like this (in the example it is in the Windows version being that in Linux is very similar):

    chrome.exe --disable-bundled-ppapi-flash --always-authorize-plugins --allow-outdated-plugins --ppapi-in-process --enable-nacl --ppapi-flash-path=c:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer64_28_0_0_105.dll --ppapi-flash-version=28.0.0.105

    Remember that specifically in my case both Linux and Windows this is the version that I have installed.
    And on both systems Opera (Stable, Beta or Dev) have the same problem even if the site is in the exception list to run flash content.

  • same issue for me in fedora 26 and opera 49.0.2725.39

    In case you're using Linux depending where the flash .so file.
    In my case for example the command line is like:

    /usr/bin/google-chrome-unstable --disable-bundled-ppapi-flash --always-authorize-plugins --allow-outdated-plugins --ppapi-in-process --enable-nacl --ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so --ppapi-flash-version=28.0.0.105

  • @msxmaniac but the last versione of flash player is 27.0.0.187. Error or beta version? with opera 48.0 works correctly
