This question already has an answer here:
I am using Chromium for Ubuntu and it's telling me I need to install Adobe Flash Player (AFP) when I go to play a certain video by directing me to Adobe's website. I have AFP installed via Ubuntu Software Center, however that seems to be not good enough.
How can I get it working?
I have done some research before posting this and I'm being told (from Adobe's website) to download the tar ball, extract, then cp the files into certain directories, namely libflashplayer.so into Chromium's "browser plug-in directory" and a /usr folder into "the flash player local settings configuration."
I presume this process will work given that it's in Adobe's readme file; I have a few questions about the instructions. How do I find the browser plugin in directory, generally speaking; I'd like an answer that applies to any OS as well as browser if possible.
If there is a better way to go about solving this problem, please address it.
