Thread: libflash working in 11.4 Firefox?

  1. #1

    Default libflash working in 11.4 Firefox?

    Hi,

    Well I am another one to add to the long list of flash player issues. loll

    Don't have a problem with 11.2, but in 11.4 it does not play, no sound no image. On youtube it's a black window instead of the video. Other sites don't load the video as well.

    - I have FF3.6.16 installed (4.0 has weird issues loading more than 14-17 add-ons, it just won't start correctly)
    - I do have mplayer-plugins 3.55, BUT I simply copied the .so and .xpt from my 11.2 cuz the package does not exist for 11.4. With or without them it does not change any behavior on sites like youtube.
    - I tried using both 32-bits and 64-bits versions of libflash using the command
    Code:
    nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so
    or
    nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so
    and no difference.
    -
    Code:
    $ rpm -qa | grep flash
    pullin-flash-player-11.4.1-0.3.1.x86_64
    flash-player-10.2.159.1-0.2.1.i586
    so I don't have libflashsupport and apparently it's better this way.
    - I do have a bunch of proprietary packages like lbdvdcss, a52, ffmpeg and also some gstreamer, etc...
    - I also went in Preferences, Applications, searched for FLASH and changed the default from Shockwave to Flash Player, but no difference.

    This is what about: plugins in FF tells me for the Shockwave and Flash stuff:

    Code:
    Shockwave Flash
    
     File:  libswfdecmozilla.soVersion:   Shockwave Flash 9.0 r999   MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled    application/x-shockwave-flash Adobe Flash movie swf Yes   application/futuresplash FutureSplash movie spl Yes
    Code:
    Shockwave Flash
    
     File:  npwrapper.libflashplayer.soVersion:   Shockwave Flash 10.2 r159   MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled    application/x-shockwave-flash Shockwave Flash swf Yes   application/futuresplash FutureSplash Player spl Yes
    I don't know what else to check.
    Any thoughts?

    tnx

    Interesting!!

    If I install FF4.0.0 or FF3.6.16 in 32-bits, it works, though erratic on some sites, but youtube works.
    If I install FF4.0.0 or FF3.6.16 in 64-bits, it does not work.

    After more tests, I don't believe it's a FF issue, cuz both 3.6.16 and 4.0.0 are not running flash in 64-bits but work in 32-bits. I mean FF being in 32-bits.
    3.6.16 is much more stable than 4.0.0 and it's been working in 64-bits, but not under opensuse 11.4 for me.

    Next test is to install 4.0.0 64-bits in opensuse 11.2 and see what happens.

    Annoying, I cannot use 11.4 just cuz of FF... running it in 32-bits requires a bunch of other 32-bits packages to be installed cuz mozilla-js and xulrunner are changed for 32-bits versions and there are about 30 dependencies (I installed the 32-bits versions, not the 64-bits "xulrunner-32bits" packages).

    my thought is you should only have *one* version installed, and that
    *one* should be the latest: Shockwave Flash 10.2 r159

    if i were you i'd open YaST > Software Management and remove all the
    flash players installed and then install the ONE it offers for install..

    Sounds complicated.

    Firefox 4.0 (64bit) with 32bit flash-player works for me on 11.4.

    +1 from y side works like a charm 64bit FF and 32bit flashplayer.

    @Franksuse64
    I would really recommend to follow what DenverD wrote.
    You messed up your system without needing to do so. Uninstall everything
    which has to do with flash. Remove also all files you copied somewhere by
    hand.
    I would even uninstall Firefox and after you have done that:
    Install the proper 64 bit firefox (whatever version is to your liking) with
    yast.
    Close yast and open it again to see what it recommends (I would expect it
    wants then to install the proprietary falsh plugin) just accept that.
    If it does not install the package flash-player.

    Bingo.

    I had to remove
    Code:
    swfdec-mozilla
    and
    Code:
    swfdec
    packages.
    I guess DenverD was right about having 2 different versions of Shockwave flash. That is not good.

    So now FF3.6.16 works (4.0 still beta to me for certain things), I have downgraded libnotify 1.2.3 to 1.1.3 in order to have emesene (msn client) working with notifications, I just need to migrate my stuff and I should use 11.4!

    tnx a lot!

    Hopefully this thread will help other people having flash not working in FF.

    To answer this thread's question...
    No !

    Flashplayer doesn't work on my fresh 11.4 install in whatever browser.
    Well, "doesn't work" is not totally true. Flashplayer displays images but I have no sound.
    This is not a sound system issue because I can hear everything else.

    aboutlugins gives:
    Shockwave Flash

    File: libflashplayer.so
    Version:
    Shockwave Flash 10.2 r152

    MIME Type Description Suffixes
    application/x-shockwave-flash Shockwave Flash swf
    application/futuresplash FutureSplash Player spl

    I have no other flash related package installed than:
    flash-player-10.2.152.26-2.1.i586
    pullin-flash-player-11.4.1-0.3.1.i586


    I also tried to install (and link the lib in /usr/lib/browser-plugins/) the latest official Adobe package (r159)

    Any other ideas

    Thanks,
    RichardG

    I have FF4 + Flash from openSUSE repos + 64bit Flash Square from Adobe + Sound running on openSUSE 11.4 64bit Gnome 3.
    2 different Flash versions work, if you copy an additional libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins and have one of the two disabled in the FF AddOns section. You can switch between the two versions on the fly without even have to restart FF.

    The 32bit Flash from the openSUSE repos seems to have problems showing Flash videos, but the 64bit square version has not.

    At least at my system.
