Pepper or Adobe Flash?

#1 Postby namida12 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:42 pm

Flash Question on pre-rec1: I was under the impression I am using Adobe Flash in Google Chrome, and do not know how to properly check.

I originally thought Google Chrome was using "Pepper" as the Adobe Flash replacement, but somewhere I read that MX & AntiX had switched to Adobe Flash.

Checking on Adobe website with Goggle Chrome: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/
It appears I have the latest version of PPAPI
and Firefox has the latest version of NPAPI

Does that mean I am still running pepper in Google Chrome, and Adobe in Firefox?

Reason I ask is my ISP has a internet speed test inside my account that does not work with my Google Chrome web browser, yet I can use some internet speed tests outside of my ISP internal speed tests. I also check my chromebook, and neighbors Chromebox and they do not work either. I do not have a Mac, nor a windows system today to check.

mx includes both a PPAPI and a NPAPI plugin in our adobe-flashplugin package. Firefox still uses the NPAPI one I think. chromium (not chrome) and similar would use the PPAPI plugin.

That said, google-chrome uses its own flash implementation (the so called pepper flash, which is also adobe) which is still present even if our flash package is removed.

so yeah, if you have our adobe-flashplugin insalled, and google-chrome, you've pretty much got everything in the flash world.

Seems this one works in Firefox and not in Google Chrome...

dolphin_oracle,

Thanks for clearing up my confusion. I thought I read somewhere that Google Chrome was now using Adobe Flash in MX and AntiX, when I knew the standard was Pepper, guess that was Firefox that was using pepper, until Adobe started supplying Linux a newer version of Adobe Flash again.

I also read that Adobe Flash is still going to disappear in 2020 regardless of the many web site creators demands.

It works here on Firefox & Google Chrome and Opera, although not on Konqueror.

Speaking of that, just checked and there's a new release of the two plugins from Adobe, so am updating the adobe-flashplugin package.
