How to Install Latest Flash Player in Chromium


Adobe is no longer releasing new versions of Flash Player for Linux with version 11.2 being last release.The only way to get latest Flash Player in Linux is to use Chrome, as Adobe has partnered with Google to distribute Flash player as a pre-installed plugin in Chrome. This plugin uses Pepper API in Chrome, which is unfortunately not supported by other popular browsers like Firefox and Opera.
However, in case you prefer Chromium over Chrome, this plugin can be easily used with Chromium. Follow the instructions:
Install latest stable version of Chromium by following instructions from here.
Download latest Google Chrome stable deb package and extract it.
Look for these two files: libpepflashplayer.so and manifest.json in PepperFlash folder.
Copy them to /usr/lib/PepperFlash folder. If the folder doesn’t exist, create it.
Open manifest.json file in a text editor and note down the version. In my case, it is 11.3.31.208
Now to run Chromium, use the following command:
chromium-browser –ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so –ppapi-flash-version=11.3.31.208
 

Enter chrome://plugins in address bar and expand the details of the plugins. Chromium will tell you that you have two versions of Flash Player, just disable the older version.

 

Note that you will have to run above command everytime to launch Chromium with new Flash plugin enabled. To make it simpler create a bash script with following in it.

#!/bin/bash

chromium-browser –ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so –ppapi-flash-version=11.3.31.208
