Ubuntu – Ubuntu 14.04 WebBrowser.app does not see flash


The new WebBrowser.app now in Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64bit does not play flash.

I have Adobe flash installed and working both in Firefox and Chrome, but the Browser.app says it is not installed.

When I try to play flash I get the message that I need to install the latest 32bit flash, but I have a 64bit system and 64bot flash is installed..

Any suggestions?

webbrowser-app does not currently support flash. As far as webm (html5), support is limited to vp8 & vp9

Open this link in webbrowser-app to see current support -


Here's an example of a YouTube video it will play
