Install Adobe Flash Player 11.2 On CentOS/RHEL 7/6 and Fedora 25-20

Adobe Flash Player is an open source cross-platform application for web browsers that is used for streaming multimedia files like audio and video on a computer web browser like Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari etc.

Flash Player was developed by Macromedia to support and run SWF files, vector, 3D graphics and an embedded scripting languages that are used to stream audio and video. It was the only one application used by over 90% users across the globe and is a common for running games, animations and embedded scripts in the web pages.

Important: Back in 2012 the company announced that they no longer making newer versions of its NPAPI (Firefox) or PPAPI (Chrome) Flash player plugin for Linux and would only supply critical security updates to Flash Player 11.2 until 2017.

But, recently the company made a small announcement on its blog, that they will continue to support Adobe Flash for Linux and recently they made available a beta build of Adobe Flash 23 for Linux.

In this article we will explain how to install latest version of Adobe Flash Player 11.2 (32-bit and 64-bit) on RHEL/CentOS 7/6 and Fedora 25-20 using Adobe’s own repository with YUM/DNF software package tool to keep the Flash Player Plugin up-to-date.

Update: Latest version of Google Chrome switched to HTML5 by killing Adobe Flash forever..

Step 2: Updating Adobe Repository

    Here is link to get latest flash beta for Linux: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html

    For Fedora 25, I used the “Download Flash Player for Firefox and Netscape Plug-In compatible applications – NPAPI (64-bit) – RPM Installer” link and it works great!

    I had to use this latest beta otherwise I was having issues with a flash site that I need to use for work.
