What happens when you try to install Flash Player?

The normal way to get the flash plugin installed is to visit the Adobe website and use their web installer - select the 'rpm for yum' install, which adds the repository you your system. After you do this, you need to use your package manager to add the 'flash-plugin' package, or you can do it with yum (or dnf if you prefer) using yum install flash-plugin. Of course, you need root privileges to install packages.

The most popular alternative to the flash plugin seems to be built into the Chrome browser. If you install chrome (visit the Google software store to install that) it should be capable of playing flash content without the plugin installed.

as far as I know, this installs the NPAPI flash, which works for Firefox and Old Opera, but doesn't work for any Chromium based browser (Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi and so on) for those you need PPAPI flash which is not included on this package

You could try pepper-flash from russian fedora repository. You'll get last version of flash in your Firefox. I've got some glitches while watching video streams with adobe-flash (I think, because it outdated), but with pepper-flash it's ok. For Firefox:

  • enable russian fedora repository
    su -c 'yum install --nogpgcheck'
  • install chromium-pepper-flash & freshplayerplugin (it's a plugin that enables pepperflash in firefox):
    sudo yum install chromium-pepper-flash freshplayerplugin
  • check it (dont sure if it enabled by default): Firefox > Addons > Plugins > Shockwave Flash 16

You could also just install Chromium browser, if you like it more, and pepper-flash from this repo:
sudo yum install chromium chromium-pepper-flash.

Dont forget to verify keys while installing - you can find it here:
