These instructions are for 32bit Peppermint ONLY
OK, we're going to make Chromium use Chrome's "pepper" flashplayer (188.8.131.52) instead of the Adobe one.
Change directory to /opt:
download the PepperFlash32.tar.gz from my dropbox:
sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/PepperFlash32.tar.gz
sudo tar -xvf PepperFlash32.tar.gz
Open /etc/chromium-browser/default for editing:
sudo gedit /etc/chromium-browser/default
and change the last line from:-
(that's all one line, so probably best to copy/paste)
SAVE the file.Close ALL running instances of Chromium <-- this is important
Now reopen Chromium and test flash.
If you ever receive a chromium-browser update, it will overwrite the:-/etc/chromium-browser/default
file, so you'll need to re-edit it again.
It won't hurt anything .. chromium will just go back to using the Adobe flashplayer until you re-edit the file again.
BTW, you can check which version of flash chromium is using by going to:chrome://plugins
