[solved] Iceweasel: Flash-plugin does not work (Wheezy)

Postby maui_muc » 2012-03-05 23:07

Hi there,

unfortunately Iceweasel 3.2.1 does not play flash-videos on my fresh wheezy installation. Non-free repositories are activated and the flash-plugin is installed. In Iceweasel about:plugins tells me:
Code: Select all
Shockwave Flash
Shockwave Flash 11.1 r102
Enabled: Yes
MIME type   Description   Suffixes
application/x-shockwave-flash   shockwave flash   swf
application/futuresplash   futuresplash player   spl
On three websites I tried flash does not work. These are youtube.com and two German sites ard.de and zdf.de . Using Squeez flash worked fine at all these websites.

Any suggestions what I could have done wrong?

Best, Stefan

Try
Code: Select all
update-flashplugin-nonfree --install


Sometimes deleting the .adobe file helps.
Try moving it out of the way first.
Code: Select all
mv ~/.adobe/ ~/.adobe-bak

Actually, this command does something:

However, it did not resolve the problem. Flash still does not work.

Unfortunately, this does not help either.

I observed one really weird thing. Sometimes the sound is working well. Whenever there is a flash object included a little box with a question mark inside is shown as on my favorite news page. When I hit return the sound starts but the video is not shown.

Debian Wheezy has Iceweasel 9.0, you can not have version 3...

To update to the latest version (9 or 10) see: http://mozilla.debian.net/

Ok, Synaptic tells me there is is even version 10 installed. However, 'About Iceweasel' says: GNOME Web Browser Version 3.2.1 :shock:

I think you're confusing the browser.

Browser Epiphany = Navegador web de GNOME 3.2.1
Browser Iceweasel = Iceweasel 9.0.1 (or version 10).

And in other Chrome news, Chrome was totally hacked today at Pwn2Own:

And that's that.

Indeed, I confused browsers. Very embarrassing :oops: . With Iceweasel flash works perfectly fine.
