flashplayer-plugin from Packman not playing videos in Firefox


I just have an issue that isntalling flashplayer-plugin from packman doesn’t play content for which i need flash in firefox 50, and now in 51 (I use streaming sites, and flash is a requirement). Any help on how to enable it for Firefox?

Standard question for all “player X does not play format N” questions: did you do the vendor switch to Packman?


not seeing such problem on KDE Plasma 5.8.5 Distro: openSUSE Leap 42.2 with install as follows

from “http://ftp.gwdg.de:80/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/

from “http://download.opensuse.org:80/distribution/leap/42.2/repo/oss/

what are the versions of the packages on your install?

sometimes videos do not play due to heavy loading at provider end!


ps. new firefox & mozilla pachages now in repos, Version: 51.0.1-50.2!!!

Thanks to both of you. I did a vendor change, and while it didn’t change the flash version at all, it did change some libraries, and since then everything works as expected.

Thanks again!
