Let's kill Flash Plugin and go with a Pepperflash plugin wrapper

Lookie what I found.....

Haven't fiddled with it on VL, but it works very good with Firefox in Fedora.

M0E-lnx:
Try it out and see how it works for you.

I did a test build for Vector 7.2.  You can find the builds here
http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/git/m0e.lnx/freshplayerplugin/pipelines

Click on the 'Passed' button and navigate to the build for your architecture ("32-bit or 64-bit") in the next page (it should be obvious to you).  When you find the build you need, click the 'Passed' button on the far left of that row.  That will take you to the actual build page.

When you see the build log, look to the right of the page, and under 'Build artifacts', click "Browse".  That will get you to the actual package.

Heck, here

32-bit http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/git/m0e.lnx/freshplayerplugin/builds/465/artifacts/file/freshplayerplugin-0.3.6-i586-1vl72.txz
64-bit http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/git/m0e.lnx/freshplayerplugin/builds/466/artifacts/file/freshplayerplugin-0.3.6-x86_64-1vl72.txz

Let me know if you are not running 7.2, I can try to have it built on 7.1 also, idk how that would go though.

Let us know if this works

retired1af:
Welp, it appeared to install OK, but it's not showing up in Firefox as a plugin.

Lemme dig and see what's going on with it.

retired1af:
OK. On VL64-7.2, the wrapper file is being written to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. It should be written to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins.

Copied the file over and Firefox isn't picking it up for some reason.

The digging continues.

Oh.. And where the hell is Firefox current? I HATE using the ESR version.

M0E-lnx:
You may need to uninstall the flashplugin package to avoid conflict (not sure if that's necessary, but just to be safe)

You can find the current firefox-50.0.1 on 7.2 untested.

Here is the re-built package with the corrected path.

To test this, maybe after you remove flash player, and restarting firefox, visit a website that requires flash and see what happens.
