I need a Flash or HTML video player add-on, but none will install from the Firefox add-in library.

Posted

I'm looking for a Flash or HTML5 video player add-on so I can watch Youtube and other videos from Firefox 51.0 Beta. But all the add-on Flash or HTML5 players in the Firefox add-on library will download but refuse to install because none are compatible with the most recent version of Firefox.

I have instructions for downloading and installing an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow compatible flash player directly from Adobe's website. But there are two Android 6.0.1 compatible files names on the site, and I don't know which one to use.

Should I download and install the Flash player file with the highest alpha-numeric filename, assuming that it is the most recent version, or should I wait until I can get a definative answer from Adobe?

Oh,, and Happy Thanksgiving!

My Firefox 51.0b 1 Beta on Android plays YouTube video clips in HTML with no need for any add-on.

Desktop Firefox is similar in being able to play HTML5 video content from YouTube.

Try your Firefox as it is, Happy Thanksgiving.

Adobe has not supported their Flash Player Plugin Android since September 2013 and the 11.1.x is rather old and vulnerable now. https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html
