should we restart browser?

That shouldn't be necessary, the component update will work without an update. New Flash content that's opened in the browser will use the latest version of Flash.

Do you anticipate providing a similar update for Linux users fairly soon?

Gordon Hawley said...

Thank you for the continued updates. Much appreciated!

Rich, Flash Player 11.2 is the last supported Flash Player version for Linux. Adobe will continue to provide security updates.

Gordon,
Flash 11.2 is the last "stand-alone" version for Linux, but the Flash Player bundled with Chromeis not the same, and has been updated. For example, I am currently using Chrome 26.0.1410.63 with Flash Player 11.7.700.169 (as reported by both chrome://plugins and by Adobe's "About Flash" page: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/)

Rich, apologies for the confusion with the Flash Player for Linux. I did not realize Chrome provided an updated Player for the Linux platform.

I'm using IE8 with the latest Google Frame but the Flash plugin doesn't seem to update itself and actually crashed for the first time:

ChromeFrame has encountered a fatal error.

I had to restore Win7 to an earlier date due to issue I had w/ Microsoft Update this afternoon. Of course Chrome is back to the older Flash Player. Does anyone know when the update will be pushed to me again? I tried downloading Chrome but it doesn't contain the newer Flash yet.

Yesterday Google Chrome automatically updated on both of my laptops, and Flash player stopped working. All flash-powered websites such as Youtube reported that Shockwave flash plugin didn't load. Something went wrong with this update, obviously!

I had to disable the built-in Flash player (located in AppData...\PepperFlash\11.7.700.202\pepflashplayer.dll) and install the official Adobe Flash plugin for Chromium. That fixed the problem!

In case anyone else is trying to overcome the issue with the Flash plugin, make sure you don't have both Flash players enabled (open chrome://plugins tab, disable the built-in plugin, then install the Adobe one).

Still no flash update for Linux browsers here on a couple different systems...

Gordon Hawley said...

Flash Player updated again for me this morning. No problems so far.

Love this method of updating now. This was what I thought when chrome + flash player was announced.

Nice work!

And Chrome 27? Nothing?

Flash update for Chrome has had poor performance on youtube videos. Some videos you hear the start of the sound and see and picture, start buffering and then starts playing again. Very annoying. Never used to do this, and sdoesn;t do this on internet explorer.

I also cannot playing sirius radio anymore either because of the last update.

Max Munro said...

GREAT. It just broke every Youtube video. They hang for ages.

Keywords: Flash 11.7.700.202 makes youtube videos slow to load.

I feel so lucky to have found this thread.
I've not been able to get sound from U-tube for a while now & yesterday I I tried using I.E.
I used to be a techie so could understand more than I wanted to know about the google/flash disconnection ..

Is it fixed yet?
