Ubuntu 14.04 – Solving problems with Flash Player

Updating my Ubuntu version 13.10 to the 14.04 I've had to do the typical adjustments in the settings, and install some software packages that update has been removed.

Adobe_Flash_Player_v7.0_iconOne of them has been the flash plugin to display videos and other content in your web browser. The problem has been that the videos were very fast and no sound both with free such as the adobe flash plugin.

The solution has been to use the pepper flash plugin for Chrome, that has solved the problem both Mozilla Firefox and Chromium. To install it you must enter the two following commands in terminal

usuario@maquina:~$ sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
usuario@maquina:~$ sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install

And after a reboot we can already enjoy the Flash plugin and See videos on Youtube.

  1. Not bad but I opt for another solution, tired of that once flash executes during 10 minutes my computer decides to go up to 80 o 90 degrees will probably uninstall it and the truth is that not I miss it, YouTube runs on Html5, the steam website nor gives any problem, streamcloud goes well. The only one that I miss is xvideos but me workaround with pornhub 😉
    The bad joke is released I write this because personally use flash crap and everyone is free to use whatever. But I soon thought that flash was indispensable (as many people believe) and little by little I see that it is not so.

    • Flash spent many resources, on that I agree... but although always try to use the free version, same as openjdk is a package which is usually me essential for multiple things.

      Although you're right that sucks, and more from Adobe.

      In any case a time when options are more "native" as which you intend operating in a way somewhat more stable will be when it starts to use them in production.
