    Hello and Welcome!

    Where did you read that Adobe isn't supported in Linux?
    I use Flash in Slackware, with no issues. And have done so with many other distros in the past.

    To answer the question:
    For now, the existing adobe flashplugin will have to do.

    There is also Gnash
    But due to the nature of proprietary software, this will probably never have the same set of features as the original.

    Luckily, flash is on its way down. Finally.
    html5 will take over.

    Unfortunately, some nasty things are coming up here as well:
    Google, Microsoft and Netflix want to introduce drm there:

    One of the posters about this story suggested the best way round for Firefox is to simply switch to using the Chromium plugin. I've done the YouTube trials with HTML5 and it all looked good here. I've had a lot of trouble with flash in Linux over the years. I hope we eventually get something that works better for us.
