Hello i am new to Linux. i have Precise Puppy 5.7.1 & have been enjoying it verry much as i find it pretty easy to navigate simple tasks.
ok the question, i have been using my webcam on many chat sites, however on the one i like to work the most i cannot get my webcam to broadcast. there is a box telling me that i am using an old version of adobe & need to upgrade? why only the one site? can someone please help me, as that is my only income due to disability? if i am too vague on info please let me know. thank you, karma:)

Try installing Google-Chrome, it uses a newer version of flash, flash version 11.2 don't work on some sites so I've found.

Welcome to the forum Smile

Adobe has stopped supporting standalone versions of Flash Player for Linux since 11.2, except for security and bug fixes. The only way to get a newer release of Flash Player is to install a recent copy of Google Chrome, which includes the "Pepper" version of Flash.

Please see here. Wink

There are open source versions of flash, Gnash and Lightspark but I don't think they work as well as Adobe's.


Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ loves and cares about you most of all!

PLEASE READ! You don't have to end up here!
