Flash Player 11 installation on Ubuntu 12.04

Recently while I was watching some youtube video I encountered an error which didnt allow me to play the particular youtube videos. This occured in both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers. It was due to missing flash player. I downloaded the latest flash player from the official website. Well you can get the flash player 11 for Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit from this link.

It was very simple to install the flash player, just a couple of quick steps.
Make a new directory and place the downloaded flash player into it and proceed to extract the .tar.gz tarball.
$ tar xzvf install_flash_player_11_linux_x86_64.tar.gz

Now move to the Mozilla Plugins directory
$ cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Lastly just copy the file that you just extracted in your folder to the Mozilla Plugins directory.
$ sudo cp /your_folder/install_flash_player_11_linux_x86_64/ .

That's it. Flash Player 11 is installed in your system. Resume playing to your youtube videos. Enjoy!


  1. Thanks Baban. In the last few days, I have been having problems with flashplayer plugin on Firefox and youtube, too.

    Do you have an idea why it suddenly stopped working?


  2. I Think of your talents as the things you’re really good at. They’re like personality traits. For instance, you may be a very creative person, or a person who’s really good at attending to details or a person with a gift for communicating. Your talents are the base for any successful business venture, including a home-based business.
