Problems with flash in chrome for ubuntu

April 26, 2012 1 comment

I’m using google chrome on ubuntu 11.10 64 bits.

I have a lot of problems playing flash videos (slow playback, errors in some pages, etc.).

This is how I solved.

Type this on your adress bar:


Click on the details link on the upper right corner to see a detailed view.

Search the text “flash”. In my case I have this two plugins:

VLC Multimedia Plugin (compatible Totem 3.0.1)

Shockwave Flash (2 files) - Versió: 10.1 r999.<br>Gnash 0.8.10dev, the GNU SWF Player

I have problems with the gnash plugin, so I removed it. First, close google chrome, and now:

$ sudo apt-get remove gnash

And now install (or reinstall) Adobe’s Flash player plugin:

$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer --reinstall

Now, open again google chrome and in the plugins view you may see Adobe’s Shokwave Flash (in addition to VLC):

Flash - Version: 11.2 r202
VLC Multimedia Plugin (compatible Totem 3.0.1)

If you want, you can reinstall now gnash plugin.
