Opera not detecting PPAPI Flash

  • Using opera stable version 26.0.1656.60 on windows 7 x64. Previously opera detected the chrome flash plugin and used it, But suddenly (maybe after an update) it stopped detecting the plugin. When I use --ppapi-flash-path="xyz" --ppapi-flash-version="" switch it starts to detect it again but the problem is when the switch is not used pepper flash is not detected. I don't know if the standalone setup from adobe will work or not but I don't want to try it, the chrome plugin worked great and updated itself (if I install standalone ppapi flash there will be another plugin to update). Any help is greatly appreciated!!
    Update: Using the switch, the plugin actually doesn't work. It just shows up in the plugins page.

  • You should download Ppapi Flash from Adobe and it will work. You just have to configure automatic updates in the intallation.

  • Afaik Opera only detects the standalone ppapi flash and not the Chrome plugin so, as said, the best thing to do is to download and install it from Adobe's site.
