Did anyone manage to get chromium web-browser working with flashplayer ?

So far what I tried:

sudo apt install flashplugin-installer

that worked well for firefox but no effect on chromium.

then I tried:

sudo apt install adobe-flashplugin browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

but it removed the adobe-flashplugin and made firefox's tabs crash when I tried to play some flash powered video. But again no effect to chromium.

I tried both snap and non-snap version.

Any suggestions ?

  • The only package needed for Chromium is adobe-flashplugin. This page provides updated instructions for Ubuntu users. May 7, 2018 at 13:57
  • Installing adobe-flashplugin and browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash fixed it for chromium but made firefox unusable.

I found this link http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2016/10/pepper-flash-chromium-opera-ubuntu/

After several combinations I found that only following step #1,step #2 and step #4 (avoiding step #3) and installing flashplugin-installer, somehow worked for both.
