FF56 Flash Player - Working on Windows 10 not working on Tumbleweed

Marco Calistri-3
Would like to know why Flash-Player videos are not working anymore on
FF56 Linux (oS TW) instead they are perfectly working on FF56 Windows 10.

*This is one of the worst oddities I've faced so far...*

Regards,

Thanks for your reply Lars.

In my case to answer to Patrick, I see the warning message to "Update
Flash Player" whenever I click on a Facebook attached video despite I
already have the latest Flash Player plugin installed in FF56 so the
issue is elsewhere on Tumbleweed.

I'm confident of the fact FF is abandoning/not supporting Adobe Flash
anymore in favor of HTML5 but as soon as I seen it perfectly warning on
Windows FF version, I've remained very disappointed.

Cheers,

Seems more like a problem between the FF build and GDK
rather than anything Flash-related.

It seems conceivable that gtk changed their API again and firefox did not get
the needed rebuild - or something in that ballpark.

Hello,

Try to disable Flash Player in the firefox plugin settings  - and I
really mean to set it to "disabled" - "ask every time" won't work [1].

I know this sounds like a funny advise, so let me explain ;-)

Many sites automatically switch to HTML5 video when they detect Flash
Player isn't available. This detection is done based on headers your
browser sends.

I rarely view Facebook pages, but last time I did, I was able to play a
video. I uninstalled Flash Player two years ago, so it obviously worked
without Flash ;-)

Oh, and I didn't miss Flash Player in the last two years ;-) - most
pages I usually visit all switched to HTML5 video, and in the very rare
case I can't see a video, youtube-dl helps.


Regards,

Christian Boltz

[1] Last time I tested, Firefox did still send out the header indicating
    that Flash Player is installed when it was set to "ask every time"
    mode. Note that this was two years ago, so while I never heard about
    a change in this area, I won't guarantee that the behaviour is still
    the same ;-)

When youtube-dl requests phantomjs, you know that Javascript is the
new Flash.

Tested by following your directions and it didn't works: The page

Marco,

Install freshplayer. It uses the chromium pepper flash file. It will work.

Description
freshplayerplugin - PPAPI2NPAPI compatibility layer

The main goal of this project is to get PPAPI (Pepper) Flash player working in Firefox.
This wrapper implements some kind of adapter which will look like browser to PPAPI plugin and look like NPAPI plugin for browser.

Nothing to do!

Tried to uninstall flash-player then uninstall the fresh-player (which
surprisingly was already installed).

Then install just fresh-player and finally re-install flash-player.

So far only Google Chrome seems to be able to play *swf* containers.

Nor Firefox, nor Opera are able to do it.

Cheers,

Marco

Don't know if you saw this, but even Adobe themselves discourage the use of
flashplayer. I haven't had it installed for years now, and do not miss it at
all.

Yes I know that flash-player is not recommended but the question is: why
it works on Firefox 56 for Windows and Chrome for Linux only?

It is more a technical issue than a security one for what I can argue.

For Opera browser there are two options:

Install Opera browser

Installing signing key

sudo rpm --import https://rpm.opera.com/rpmrepo.key

sudo tee /etc/zypp/repos.d/opera.repo << RPMREPO
[opera]
name = Opera packages
type = rpm-md
baseurl = https: //rpm.opera.com/rpm
gpgcheck = 1
gpgkey = https: //rpm.opera.com/rpmrepo.key
enabled = 1
autorefresh = 1
keeppackages = 0
RPMREPO

sudo zypper in opera-stable
or
sudo zypper in opera-beta


Option 1

For Opera stable

Add Adobe and Packman repository
https://en.opensuse.org/Adobe_Flash_Player
http://opensuse-guide.org/browserplugins.php

Install Flash Player and ffmpeg:
sudo zypper in flash-player-ppapi chromium-ffmpeg-extra

Backup and copy libffmpeg.so to the Opera browser:
sudo mv /usr/lib64/opera/libffmpeg.so /usr/lib64/opera/libffmpeg.so.original
sudo cp -p /usr/lib64/chromium-ffmpeg-extra/libffmpeg.so
/usr/lib64/opera/libffmpeg.so

Note:
When updating Opera you have to redo the copy of libffmpeg.so
You can also use symlink for libffmpeg.so but can be removed when updating
Opera


Option 2

Add Adobe and Packman repository
sudo zypper in flash-player-ppapi chromium-ffmpeg-extra

Search and download in herecura repo:
https://repo.herecura.eu
https://repo.herecura.eu/herecura/x86_64/
opera-ffmpeg-codecs
opera-beta-ffmpeg-codecs

Backup libffmpeg.so to libffmpeg.so.original
sudo mv /usr/lib64/opera/libffmpeg.so /usr/lib64/opera/libffmpeg.so.original
sudo mv /usr/lib64/opera-beta/libffmpeg.so
/usr/lib64/opera-beta/libffmpeg.so.original

Extract each file and copy libffmpeg.so to
sudo cp -p libffmpeg.so /usr/lib64/opera/libffmpeg.so
sudo cp -p libffmpeg.so /usr/lib64/opera-beta/libffmpeg.so

Note:

Opera Developer is not working
For Opera Beta you need to give execute permissions to Flash

Everything you wrote is interesting but I would like to rely just on one
browser: Firefox.

Are the directions you suggested valid also to be used with FF56, in
order to have a working "SWF" browser?

I mean the directions related to add Adobe and Packman repositories:

https://en.opensuse.org/Adobe_Flash_Player
http://opensuse-guide.org/browserplugins.php

Thanks and regards,

It doesn't really make sense to install both though.

fresh-player is a bridge to make it possible to use Chromium's flash-player-
ppapi (formerly called "pepper-flash") in Firefox, i.e. it "replaces" flash-
player.

Maybe it is fresh-player/flash-player-ppapi that doesn't work in Firefox
anymore?

At least the error message posted by somebody else did refer to Chromium:
[Parent 16989] WARNING: pipe error (247): Connection reset by peer: file
/home/abuild/rpmbuild/BUILD/mozilla/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc,
line 353 <==
/usr/lib64/firefox/plugin-container: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib64/firefox/libxul.so: undefined symbol:
gdk_screen_get_monitor_workarea

IOW, try to remove freshplayerplugin and make sure flash-player (*without* -
ppapi, which is the one for Chromium) is installed.

Kind Regards,
Wolfgang

Thanks for your intervention, if I'm not wrong you are among the ones
taking care of Mozilla in TW. ;-)

I will try to do *AGAIN* what you suggest because I already did it
(uninstall fresh+ppapi letting just Adobe fp latest version installed
w/out success). May be I need to delete my .cache after uninstall
fresh+ppapi before attempting again a shockwave flash page(?)

Thanks and regards,
