Ubuntu – Flash not supported on webapps


On Ubuntu 14.04, you cannot see flash contents using a webapp such as youtube or grooveshark.

I installed flashplugin-istaller and pepperflashplugin-nonfree and I can see flash contents on both firefox and chromium

Best Answer

For Youtube, search for "Browser" in Dash and open https://www.youtube.com/html5 then press "Request for HTML5 player".

For Grooveshark the only way is to change link "http://grooveshark.com/" with "http://html5.grooveshark.com/" in grooveshark.user.js file located in "/usr/share/unity-webapps/userscripts/unity-webapps-grooveshark"

P.S. I don't really understand why do you need to use webapp, but most of the functions are not gonna work anyway, until webapps will be fixed (not particular webapp, but webapp system).
