    Install Flash to QupZilla Browser


    This is probably hopeless, but I thought I'd see if anyone has been able to run flash within the QupZilla browser. I've used Chrome/Chromium as my primary browser for years, but I really like the simplicity and appearance of QupZilla...but not being able to watch YouTube videos is a deal breaker for me. Is there a workaround that I'm unaware of, or do I need to go back to Chromium?

    What's your distro?
    Which flash version you have installed? (Pepper flash won't work with Qupzilla)
    What have you tried so far?
    If youtube is your only concern have you tried setting youtube to html5 playback?

    qupzilla is playing youtube videos just fine without flashplugin installed (defaulting to html5):



    when i install the flashplugin, it still plays the video but crashes when i shut it down while the video is playing (this is on archlinux).

    probably i haven't made it so clear in my last post, but you can really just uninstall the flashplugin.
    from your packet manager, not from your browser.

    i know some sites still depend on flash, but really not so many.

    if the flashplugin is installed but broken, it doesn't work.
    if the flashplugin isn't installed at all, most websites default to html5 => it works.
