Adobe Flash Player in Chromium

Hi guys. I recently updated my Chromium to the most recent stable version:

Version 37.0.2062.120 Built on Debian 7.6, running on Debian 7.5 (281580) (64-bit)

Prior to upgrading, Adobe Flash Player worked fine in my browser, but something with the update has unfortunately broken it. Whenever attempting to view media embedded in Flash, I see the "Please install Adobe Flash Player" message.

I attempted to install PepperFlashPlayer but for some reason could not get it to install (I added the source to my list, ran the update, and it still couldn't find the package) so I'm wondering if there are any alternatives or if someone could help me out in any way possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for pointing me in that direction. I've found the discussion on code.google about it and all the entries seem very helpful.

However they all refer to having the PepperFlashPlayer installed, which I cannot seem to do.

I have followed these instructions:
https://wiki.debian.org/PepperFlashPlayer/Installing

As well as added the backports to my sources:

## Debian Backports
deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main non-free

And ran

apt-get update

However when I try to install the plugin, I get the following;

root@utopia:~# apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package pepperflashplugin-nonfree

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Re: Adobe Flash Player in Chromium

Debian package search says it is in contrib

## Debian Backports
deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main contrib non-free

pepperflash is in the "contrib" repo. https://packages.debian.org/wheezy-back … in-nonfree

So this line:

deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main non-free

Needs to look like this:

deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main contrib non-free

Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list file, add the contrib repo, save the file, run "sudo apt-get update" again, and you should be able to install the pepperflash plugin.

I do not know if this will solve your original problem.

(edit) damo is faster. Damn you gimpbanger. ;-)

@porkpiehat

But you typed a lot more, and were more explicitly helpful  {)

Re: Adobe Flash Player in Chromium

Hah, thanks to you both! I've got PepperFlash installed. I will do some research into that code.google discussion and if I figure out a solution/fix for my original Flash problem, I'll report back. Thanks again!
