Searching PPAPI plugins

  • Which PPAPI plugins exists on Linux? I only found Pepperflash plugin.
    No others?

    I need some video and audio plugin.

    Can you give me a hint?

  • Exactly... That's my question too. Searched all over the place. No docs for opera 26 64bit(now chromium based?)regarding media plugins like gecko-mediaplayer.
    Can someone enlighten us please?

  • google-talk which is used by hangouts. The PDF plugin we bundle is also Pepper based.

  • Yeah, the PDF viewer and Pepperflash seem included. But i'm managing servers with java applets, the same on our intranet, i'm visiting webpages with media content (other than flash or html5)...
    Shouldn't i use Opera for that in your opinion...so not make it my default browser? Too early?
    Switch back to good'ol 12.
    The thing (for me) is that there are no answers to find about this and the developpers not telling us they're working on it or explaining why not. Public relations with people that are often OperaLovers for quite a while.
    ....What's that answer about...? Google-talk...?
    I love you guys & galls @Opera for your good work but we just want to know when we can expect progress for these incomplete features. I'll wait if there is hope ;)

  • @quaxeros: NPAPI is deprecated, all major browser vendors seem to be following this route, not least because of security issues with this old technology. Java itself has been the source of many such issues. So, we will not be adding back support for it. In fact Chromium upstream is planning to remove it from Windows and Mac and we will likely do the same.

    Perhaps Oracle can make a Pepper plugin if not, you can use another browser for managing such servers. I would obviously suggest keeping Opera 12.16 for this on Linux. It doesn't have to be your main browser. You can consider 12.16 your "managing server" application and continue to use 26+ for everything else.

    The easiest way to install both alongside each other is to use the tar package to install 12.16 as it places Opera in /usr/local so there will be no clashing paths.
