Flash player does not work; can not be able.

  • Try this:

    • Remove all exceptions from the Flash exceptions list.

    • Set every site in chrome://site-engagement to 0 to clear them. (Just so you can try if the following really works.(

    • Add an exception for each top level domain you want:

      [*.]com
      [*.]info
      [*.]org
      [*.]net

    Then try things.

    It seems to work for me so far. It doesn't solve this problem, but it seems to work in general.

    When having an exception list like this, I notice that some times, neither radio button for the flash preference in settings is selected. Don't know what that means, but noticed it.

    You can also try the solution proposed in this post

  • @burnout426 It works, thanks man. Opera messed something up with top bar notification for flash plug-in, click-to-play is also not working as it was previously. I have flash installed but Opera was unable to use plug-in or even ask me to use a plug-in because it was not allowed to run. Ridiculous.

  • @shahramop I'm really upset about the stories.
    Simply renaming the folder by forcing Opera to create a new one meant a new session should not cause so much trouble, not even uninstalling and then reinstalling the browser, much less having to reinstall the entire system, although Windows has a bad fame to get lost in the dust.
    The fact that you did what I did and did not work out is also worrying.
    It is true that with Opera on Linux I just did not open the extensions page anymore, forcing me to have to create a clean profile and as I said after I created it I copied the Bookmark files, Current Tabs, Current Session, History, Last Tabs and Last Session of the old profile on those of the new profile and worked everything perfectly.

    @shahramop I'm really upset about the stories.

    Antivirus settings, dirty registry system, playing with browser settings/flags and forget it...

    Many things may be involved and the fixes may wont work for some users.

  • @zalex108 msxmaniac, zalex108, Please tell these to the Opera organization that does not respond to the users( I am one of them) that have the problems; to the Opera organization that reads this forum and does not fix the problem giving a new update, the mentioned about workouts are belong to commenters in this forum that I tried to use them and telling the result of it.

  • @msxmaniac First that PC damaged (its Window) was belong to one of my friends, and not me and I told you whatever I heard, second before of this present Opera problem his PC worked well, facing this problem using different workouts suggested by the other people making him nervous making a mistake led to such PC damaging, I told him that he must listen to workout of any person that is not PC expert changing or renaming the folder of the PC that could create mistakes damaging the PC and if you are a PC expert and sure that tens of times changing and unstalling and reinstalling.........renaming the folders in a PC do not led to such accident in connection with the above "stories" for which you are "upset", please make a new update for Opera fixing the problem in order to come an end to this problem, please do not upset for that story because my friend had to pay to the PC expert for the reparation and money is not important but also the issue was this that fortunately he did not lose his document and important files.

    I'm one of the commenters/users, so can no't help on this.

    At the other hand I suppose they read this topic.
    Despite the FlashPlayer dropping future, some help should be given.

  • Another update today and still no flash without playing with the workaround. I'm beginning to think that the devs don't give a darn about user complaints like so many other developers these days. 🙄

  • Automatic update number 49 has caused a flash issue. I did not find a solution, so I uninstalled version 49 and installed 48 (48.0.2685.52). Everything went back to normal, I did not even have to reinstall Flash. I only disabled the automatic update of Opera: I deleted the opera_autoupdate.exe file from the Opera main directory and added the "OPERA_AUTOUPDATE_DISABLED" system variable, with a value of "1".
    I'm waiting for the correct patch of Opera.

  • @leocg said in Flash player does not work; can not be able.:

    if the banner asking to allow Flash doesn't show then you need to add the site as an exception in Settings > Sites > Flash.

    One reason the allow banner/toolbar won't show is if a site tries to use Javascript's navigator.plugins to detect flash where it doesn't try to actually embed anything if flash isn't present in there.

    For example:

    https://m.zigiz.com/card-games/play-free/pyramidsolitaire2
    http://isflashinstalled.com

    As in, the only time the allow banner will show up is if a page actually tries to embed a flash object in the page and you click on the plug-in placeholder. In all other cases, when the user notices that flash isn't working, they will just have to figure out that they have to manually add something to the flash exceptions list. (This is the same in Chrome btw.)

  • In Vivaldi (and Chrome), it has support for site-specific settings where you click the badge on the left side of the address field, goto "Flash" and choose "Always allow on this site".

    Doing that just adds the site to the chrome://settings/content/flash exceptions. But, I took note of exactly how it does it.

    The site setting feature doesn't use the [*.] regular expression for matching. It just does protocol_of_page://hostname:port_for_protocol.

    Example:

    http://example.com:80
    http://test.example.com:80
    https://example.com:443
    https://test.example.com:443
    

    I'm assuming if one doesn't specify the port, the exception applies to all/both ports. But, if you want to do it just like the site settings feature does it, you can specify the protocol and port expclitly just to see if it helps.

    (As previously mentioned, for Opera, there's the Site-specific Preferences extension that you can use to make things easier to add exceptions. It doesn't use the port in the exception though.)

  • Due to these changes with Flash, Vivaldi now has a help page for this.

    https://help.vivaldi.com/article/enabling-flash/

    Of course, it's as you'd expect. You need to add to the exception list.

  • @pedrosantospaiva How old is that site? When selecting View Source (from the main menu, they block the context menu) they have Javascript that includes code for IE4 and Netscape 4!
    Under the circumstances I tested the page in Opera 12.18 and in that case it sort-of works. But in a current version of Firefox it looks the same as in a current version of Opera - a background and a title.

  • For https://www.internetpolyglot.com/matching_game (clicking play button and then speaker button next to word), I got it to work. In addition to the https://* and http://* flash exceptions, I had to install the addCSS extension and enable this block for the site:

    embed[width="1"][height="1"] {
        width: 6px;
        height: 6px;
    }
    

    There's an embed element on the page at the top left that's set to 1 x 1 pixels. I found that Chrome and Opera block Flash elements that are smaller than 6 x 6. So, using the CSS to make it bigger works around that. And, one can then easily click it to get the "allow" toolbar (if the site's not already covered by one of the Flash exceptions you have).

    Similar CSS might help for other sites where the Flash exception list isn't enough. Would probably be better to also include a selector for a 1 x 1 object element. Of course, other sites might use different widths under 6 x 6 that you'd want to handle.

    Something to investigate on a per-site basis at least.

  • The only way I could get Flash to work was to add the site to the exceptions

    0_1513185343280_Opera1.jpg 0_1513185362762_opera2.jpg 0_1513185384371_opera3.jpg

  • I've been messing with the extension API to make an extension to do what adding https://*, http://* and file:///* does. It's just a simple background script of:

    chrome.contentSettings.plugins.getResourceIdentifiers(function(list) {
        for (var i = 0; i < list.length; ++i) {
            if (list[i].id == "adobe-flash-player") {
                    chrome.contentSettings.plugins.set({
                    primaryPattern: "<all_urls>", 
                    setting: "allow",
                    resourceIdentifier: list[i]
                });    
            }
        }
    });
    

    This of course doesn't solve all the Flash problems, just like manually adding the protocol-based exceptions doesn't. But, an "Always Activate Flash" extension might be useful if it could also fix the remaining issues.

    Opera might even be able to add an internal extension like this to add an "always activate flash" option back. But, that's a long shot.

  • @shahramop
    Of interest is the fact that when you go to that page:💯
    http://www.baronstrainers.com/cc/100001555295584_Giftsanddogs.html

    not only does it not display correctly, it also does not display ANYTHING when you right click on that page, I realized that because I was going to try to use the "User-Agent Switcher" on that page, but alas, a right click does not pop-up ANYTHING. I think this is MORE than anything about Flash

  • @bbildman said in Flash player does not work; can not be able.:

    right click does not pop-up ANYTHING

    If you don't know how to enable it, use Enable right click, from Chrome store.

  • Nothing happens on a right click in Firefox either!
    What a very strange web page.
    It produces nothing unless Flash is enabled, but even when I can see it I can't see exactly what it's supposed to do!
    A couple of the entries at the bottom show what appears to be some sort of countdown.
    Here is the source, if anyone can interpret it.

  • @burnout426 said in Flash player does not work; can not be able.:

    I've been messing with the extension API to make an extension to do what adding https://, http:// and file:///* does.

    Test version of an Always Activate Flash extension

    Goto opera://settings/contentExceptions#plugins and clear the Flash exceptions list if you want since it shouldn't be needed.

    Download "always activate flash.zip", extract it, goto opera://extensions, click "Developer Mode", choose "load unpacked extension", pick the "always activate flash" folder and try some pages.

    You can view the main.js and main.css files to see what's in them. Tweak main.css if needed and choose "reload" on the extensions page to test your modifications.
