    1. Thank you. It works (Fedora 17 LXDE, Firefox 14.0.1).

    2. Why do you have to install “libcurl”?

      Thanks and Regards

      • Hi Rvind,

        I think that Flash works mostly without Curl, but based on Adobe Blog information about Curl, for me it looks like Curl (libcurl) is needed on some cases.

        Do you have something better or newer information about this?

        • No! I don’t have a better solution. :)

          I just followed your instructions but, I did not install libcurl. Flashy-things seem to work on my system without libcurl. So, I was wondering why libcurl was needed.


          Thanks for the link to the adobe blog.

          Thanks and Regards

          • Okay! I thought that if I missed something new information :)

            Yes, curl is not mandatory (some Flashes might fail), but normally I have curl installed anyways so for me it’s not big deal… :)

    3. On Fedora 17 it works great; problem on Centos 6.3. Anyway this site is very helpful

      • Hi valerian,

        You are welcome!

        Do you want to tell more specific about your problem on CentOS 6.3?

    4. Hi JR

      On Centos 6.3: I followed the steps described in this topic. In about:plugins the flash plugin is listed. On youtube nothig happens, I mean the screen is black and that’s it. If i disable flash (Everything is happening on mozilla 10 browser), the youtube videos (frameset) is very very slow, so it becomes irritating watching them.
      With Fedora 17 is different story; youtube vids worked like a charm. So I gave up on Centos and stick with Fedora.
      So I don’t know what can be the prob with Centos. I tried to disinstall/reinstall flash-plugin, nspluginwrapper etc several times, but it makes no difference.
      Anyway thanks for asking.
      Again this site is very helpful; it helped me with other linux topics

      • Hi again valerian,

        Thanks for this description. :) I tried latest Flash with Firefox 10 on CentOS 6.3 and Youtube videos works normally on my computer. So that’s why this sounds some problem with graphics drivers, but might be some other problem too. :) Anyways Fedora is much better for desktop use than CentOS if you watch videos or listen music. CentOS and RHEL are much better on server side. ;)

    5. Hi JR

      thanks for reply; maybe it’s graphic drivers prob I don’t know; anyways I stick with Fedora from now :)

    6. YOU ARE AWESOME! Worked great. Thanks.

    7. Hey, this is a great guide but unfortunately flash isn’t working for me.. Everything seemed to work fine, and
      ‘adobe-linux-i386 Adobe Systems Incorporated enabled: 17’
      is installed, but firefox isn’t recognising it.. It’s not coming up under ‘about:plugins’ and youtube tells me i need to upgrade my flash etc.

      Any thoughts?

      If the following info is of any use then great, if not no worries!

          Hope that’s of some use!

          • Hi Mike,

            Thanks for this info. Looks like your problem is 32-bit flash-plugin with 64-bit Firefox. So try following:

            ## Add Adobe Repository 64-bit x86_64 ##
            rpm -ivh
            rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
            ## Remove 32-bit flash-plugin ##
            yum remove flash-plugin.i386
            ## Install needed 64-bit packages ##
            ## Check that following command install only x86_64 packages ##
            yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl

            Then close all Firefox instances and start Firefox again. Test flash, is it working then?

            • Oh really?! How’ve I ended up with 64 bit fedora?? Definitely didn’t mean to do that.. Ok thanks!! Sadly, I’ve just tried booting fedora and it got as far as the artwork and then total system fail twice :( I’ll try it again tomorrow but it seems pretty unwell so I will try out the 64bit flash as soon as I get it working again and let you know!

              Wow, I’ve just checked on the Fedora site and the main download link is for the 64bit version, I just assumed the main one would be 32 sorry, you’ve got to click ‘more download options’ to get to the 32 bit.

              Really sorry to bother you you’re a star! Looks like I’ll be starting from scratch … Never mind!

              All the best,

              • 64-bit Fedora is nowadays good choice, because Flash, Java etc. works normally on x86_64 systems. :) So even if start from scratch you can even so select Fedora 64-bit.

                Thank you for the compliment. This didn’t bother me at all, I’m happy if I can help you. If you have some other problem, feel free to ask. :)

    8. Thank you for sharing. It solved my Firefox + Youtube issue on Fedora 17

    9. Thanks a lot! Worked like a charm on Fedora17 64bit!

    10. Thank you! Successful install on CentOS 5.8 32-bit.

    11. I can’t get the bbc video on things like the bbc sport website to work. Any solutions?

      • Hi rob,

        Could you tell more specific about your problem?

        Your browser and system?
        Did you got flash successfully installed?
        Is flash working on other sites?

    12. I just installed fedora-17 64 bit on my PC. I also installed gecko-mediaplayer* and flashplayer. However, when I tried to play streaming videos from
      I only get the sound and no video. What should I do to fix this problem? Thanks.

      • Hi Mike,

        Maybe you can try mplayer or vlc and their browser plugins.

        I checked that page and there is only Windows Media (.asx), Real Player (.ram) and QuickTime videos, so Flashplayer is totally useless there.

    13. the original saved my life.thank you poster

    14. Gracias, tenia instalado, pero solo andaba para firefox, ahora anda también para chromium ;)
