that only updates pepperflashplugin the PPAPI API

the "old" API (used in iceweasel and FF, for example) NPAPI API can be updated with
Code: Select all
# update-flashplugin-nonfree --install


better idea yet, viewtopic.php?f=30&t=123890&p=587110#p587110

Thanks for the replies bester69 & fireExit, i was thinking that much about installing that i completely didnt think about how to keep it updated *doh*

Maybe tomorrow i will add a small part about keeping pepperflash updated and checking versions, and take a look at setting it up as a cronjob
but feel free to contribute :)

Thanks H_o_a_S and craig321. I can now be Chrome free. :D

Does it work? Well, mostly. Trying a few flash sites it seems to be just fine. However, one site that I visit for a movie occasionally or some catch up TV does work OK but some of the controls in the player don't display or work properly. Not really a big issue - I can play and pause, which is all I need. Just thought I'd mention it, understanding that neither of you can probably do anything about it.

Just for interest's sake, that site is http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/

(Don't fret Garry. SBS is safe. Is the Australian Special Broadcasting Service. Some, though, reckon that it stands for Sex Before Soccer. :P )
