Default Flash player in browsers
For some time now, flash hasn't worked in FF or Chrome browsers. I was OK using Opera because it worked without issue. However after some package updates, no web browser works with flash now. Am I alone on this issue? I don't see any posts for it and I know its really important for a desktop PC. Is this still an ongoing issue? I'd like to know if I need to move back to Linux while this problem is being addressed.

Search around - there was a thread precisely on this issue in the last couple if days. I'm on my iPhone, or I would do the search for you. It's working perfectly chromium for me after the fix.

I forget the details, you have to create a symlink and re-enable.

The good news is no more blue people! I have an NVidia card, and there was a bug in a previous version where hardware acceleration made people turn blue. That's fixed.

Default Flash in Browsers Fix
Thanks. After searching, I found the fix. Almost too simple.

As a regular user, type the following command in a terminal:

flashpluginctl on

In the past when I've updated my system via the PC-BSD update manager it knocked out my flash settings and had to run

Code:
nspluginwrapper -v -a -i
Before flash would work, watch out for this on your next update too.

Thanks. That worked for Chromium, but not for Firefox or Konqueror. Where in Konqueror Youtube complains that the adobe plugin needs to be updated, whereas at the same time it show a weird screen: the position of the video is black, yet that position is shown twice, and both screens are sort of 'layered over each other'. (I know this is a handicapped description, it would be nice to be able to attach a screenshot to this post).

This, from Kclark, also didn't fix it:

Code:
nspluginwrapper -v -a -i
.

Flash in youtube worked when I do "flashpluginctl on" on a root prompt but not working when I do "flashpluginctl on" on a regular user account. Flash does not work in facebook even it is working in youtube
