Sadly you have to install Wine, any windows browser and newest windows flashplugin. Some sites doesn’t support flashplugin in version 11.2.
I installed Wine, downloaded Portable Firefox and newest flashplugin – sites which offered streaming video worked faster, with less lags, and the site which offered flash-based conference system finally started to working.

Hi guest,

Actually you don’t need windows browsers, you need Google Chrome to get latest flash player on Linux.

This old (Netscape plugin API) version get’s only security updates and new (PPAPI, code-named Pepper) version is latest version of Flash Player on Linux. If you use Google Chrome Pepper-based Flash Player, you get automatically latest flash version (currently 11.9.900.170), not 11.2.

Check Adobe and Google Partnering for Flash Player on Linux blog post to get more info about Flash Player on Linux.

Thanks for info, I didn’t knew that.
Sadly, even on Google Chrome flashplugin isn’t working good. On globallivetalk.com voice chat isn’t supported, where under Wine it works perfectly.

You are welcome! I think that many Linux users have never heard about that and many doesn’t care, because they try to avoid use Flash.

And yes I believe you that even Google Chrome’s Pepper Flash is not same than Flash Player on Windows. Sometimes biggest reasons are developers who develop and tests their apps on Windows or Mac OSX only.

But fortunately nowadays Flash is more a necessary evil and new techniques, like HTML5 is coming as standard way to do same things. Have to say that I’m not huge Flash fan. I have used Linux (and other UNIX systems) since 1999 and Flash Player have been always a problem as long as I remember.

The “disappearing install”:
Thanks for all the posts on this. I’ve got a little different problem: Running latest Fedora 64 from a USB stick, installed Flash per your directions and confirmed in Firefox, runs great for the current session.
Then turned system on again and Flash doesn’t work and it’s install can’t be confirmed. Re-installed once as per above and it once again ran, and then disappeared on the next session. I’m a DOS old timer and a Linux newbee, so go easy on me. Any explanations are welcome so I can learn better. Thanks in advance ~Layne

Hi Layne,

First, welcome to Linux user and If !1 0 site!

And then your problem. When you use Fedora LiveOS (from USB stick, CD, DVD, etc.) all software updates and installation are temporary and happens in RAM. So when you reboot, you get always same Fedora with same packages that you had originally on USB stick.

If you want make permanent changes, then you have to install Fedora to hard disk(s). Fortunately this is easy task, but of course you have to arrange some free space before installation.

Feel free to ask, if you have any other questions.

So sad. :(
‘Will check to see if I can install it with the Fedora Live when I create the bootable stick. Would like to create a suite of GPS and training applications on a stick for my car. Thanks for your quick response.
