How do you get Adobe's flash video to play on Chromium? Is it this painful, or is there somewhere an extension?

NOTE: On Debian, I install flashplugin-nonfree for Mozilla-based browsers. Is there an equivalent package for Chrome?

UPDATE: I needed to re-install flashplugin-nonfree for this to work.

Chromium can also use the Mozilla plugins. Just install it and it should work. What distro are you using?

I use Debian GNU/Linux. –  Tshepang Feb 24 '11 at 9:13

For users browsing this forum after 2013, there's also a Debian pepperflashplugin-nonfree package, which is simply a wrapper to download Google's official Chrome browser and extract the Pepper Flash plugin that's bundled with newer versions of Chrome.

This can also be done by manually downloading and extracting (or installing) Google Chrome. Under a default installation, the bundled Flash plugin can be found at /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/.

There HAS to be an easier way to install that plugin. –  Karl Morrison Dec 8 '14 at 23:30
