How To Manually Update Pepperflash

Post by sjfandan » Fri Jul 17, 2015 8:52 am

I have been fighting with Flash Player issues in SJ for a few days. Have discovered that the Pepperflash plugin (v. 18.0.0.203) needs to be updated to the same version as Adobe Flash (18.0.0.209). If I enable Pepperflash under plugins I get an error message whenever I visit a Flash-enabled site like Spotify that the plugin is out of date and needs to be updated. If I disable it and use Adobe Flash, the message goes away.

Anybody with Slimjet or otherwise know when the Pepperflash plugin will get updated? Thanks!

What's New - Slimjet Version History aka Flashpeak Development Log

Version 4.0.14.0

• Make flash player updatable as an component (Visit chrome://components )
• Updated flash player to 18.0.0.209

If you don't want to have to remember or type out "chrome://components" just bookmark the page once you navigate to it the first time

INFO UPDATE:

The newer version of flash will be stored under your slimjet profile. The older version under the Slimjet program folder no longer matters.

I keep rolling back to version 4.0.10.0 because of the messed up toolbar. So I update the ADOBE Pepperflash manually. (you should just disable flash to begin with - NO HTML5 don't use it)
But to keep it updated using the newest version or an older more functioning version of Slimjet just do this.

Go here http://www.beast-usa.com/downloads/adobe-downloads.html (one of my sites no junk, no tracking, no please may I, I agree, JUST DOWNLOADS and geek help)
or here https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb ... ars_text_4

Download ADOBE Pepperflash, install it.
Then go here C:\Windows\System 32\Macromed\Flash
Copy these two files manifest.json and pepflashplayer64_18_0_0_209.dll
Put them in a new folder you made/make I have one called Slimjet-Flash-Fix
Rename pepflashplayer64_18_0_0_209.dll to pepflashplayer.dll
Now you should have two files in "Slimjet-Flash-Fix" manifest.json & pepflashplayer.dll
Then copy them and pastes them into these folders.
64 bit or 32 bit systems C:\Program Files\Slimjet\PepperFlash (Say yes to overwrite)
32bit Slimjet on a 64 bit system C:\Program Files (x86)\Slimjet\PepperFlash

Then you have a working updated version of ADOBE PepperFlash.

If you don't want to do all that I have the manifest.json & pepflashplayer.dll in a zip file to download.

Right hand side scroll down look for Slimjet. I've tested the those files on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 Pro, Ultimate, Home, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008R2 32 & 64 bit No problem.

Thanks to everyone for the helpful replies. I just ended up disabling Pepperflash and enabling Shockwave Flash on the chrome:plugins page. That seems to have done the trick. Went to Spotify and Slacker Radio which both use Flash and they now work.

@sjfandan:-

Hmm; now that was a bit of a cop-out, wasn't it? Talk about going for the 'easy option'.....

Notwithstanding the fact that Pepper is miles more secure than straight-forward Flash, I guess it only took you a couple of clicks, eh? SO easy..... :roll:

Couldn't do that now, even if you wanted to. The Chromium-based browsers no longer support NPAPI 'Flash'.


Mike. :D
