I read that it's possible to use chrome's pepperflash in Firefox. I succeeded to use it in Slacko 5.7 where I compiled the wrapper. I have taken libpepflashplayer.so from chrome's build by OscarTalks:

I have compiled the wrapper in slacko 5.7:

https://copy.com/PlGwdqiB8FQh

I have installed the following two packages from debian:

https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/i386/liburiparser-dev/download

https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/i386/liburiparser1/download

Open console and:

Code:
mkdir -p /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash


Copy the wrapper in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Copy libpepflashplayer.so in /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash. Then create a relative link in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libpepflashplayer.so to /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so. Remove libflashplayer.so from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Launch now firefox australis and play a youtube video: it works. Tested in slacko.

EDIT: it doesn't work in wary and I was not able to compile the wrapper in wary. I had in wary the extension:

https://addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/addon/youtube-all-html5/?src=api

Without the extension I can't play youtube videos and the wrapper compiled in slacko doesn't work.

Rename it libfreshwrapper.so.

Running Precise Puppy 5.7.1 with Shinobar's portable Firefox. I followed your instructions and I can confirm that it works.

I think I'll hang on to this particular setup for a while.

For testing purposes, of course. Very Happy

Great work!

Ran the Flash Benchmark 2008 on it:

http://www.snailsanimation.com/benchmark08_play.php

The result was rather disappointing. It didn't even pass the Lite test (1780 at best), and got stuck in the 'awful' zone.

As a comparison, on the same computer, on a hd frugal install of Precise Puppy 5.7.1, with Firefox 23.0.1, and Flash 10.3, it did pass the Lite test, but did not pass the Medium test (5315), and got stuck in the 'bad' zone.

Of course there could be many factors at work here, notably my old computer, but since that is the stuff I work with, I'm going to get back to my old setup.

I'll post the result of that benchmark as well.

So, on a flash drive frugal install of Precise Puppy 5.7.1, with Shinobar's portable Firefox (at this time 30.0), and Flash version 11.2.202.341, the score on the Flash Benchmark 2008 on my computer is 5049, meaning that it is still in the 'bad' zone, but closer to 'okay' than it is to 'awful'.

Still, the Pepper Flash does work! I played Gemcraft, Chasing Shadows with it, and it plays. But it's as slow as molasses, on my computer at least.

EDIT: For those who want to know, my computer has a AMD Sempron 3000+ Processor running 1,8 GHz, with 1,25 Gb RAM.

maybe its time to test again Very Happy

Oh I'm sure I could greatly improve those test results, if I switch to Fatdog, ditch Firefox for Opera, and start doing stuff like overclocking the cpu.

But I'm not going to do that.

I guess the thing to take away from this is that performance very much depends on environment variables.

For fun I am running without flash enabled at all in firefox... a tidy you tube mp4 downloader works a treat...for other sites many just give you the mp4 if there is no flash plugin.... much faster for that matter....seems little need to play the big boys games.
