flash player 9 does not work with opera 9 only flash player 7

firefox you need to create a script so that flash player 9 does not crash firefox:

# Fix Flash Player 9 Crashes
export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH="/root/firefox/plugins"

# Start Firefox

I have not tried it yet, but they did get Flash 9 working in Opera on another thread. I think it required quite a few little tweaks, but I cannot remember for sure.

In any case, Flash 7 is good enough for most purposes. It runs Youtube and similar sites, that's good enough for most people.

Flash 9 *does* work with Opera (finally!)
All you have to do is download the latest bleeding-edge alpha (build 1600) of Opera 9.50 (codenamed Kestrel) from the Opera Desktop Team Blog and the latest *stable* version of Flash from Adobe's site.
Download the static Qt4 .tar.gz package (.9) of Opera and extract it to the root folder.
Extract libflashplayer.so from the flash-installer tar.gz package to usr/lib/seamonkey/plugins folder and overwrite the old file.

Start Opera and you're ready to go Smile
Just be sure NOT to disable Javascript,Plugins and especially Automatic Redirection (per-site and globally) or it won't work.

Opera 9.5 + flash 9 works like a charm in Puppy.
Now go and test it on YouTube,MySpace or Lulu.
