Definitely not, that it is why it is called PepperFlash for Chromium.Ben_is_best wrote:Does this work on Firefox from here?

It is v23 now, and here is what i used to install/update to v23 Pepperflash in Chromium Browser (all versions).cjan wrote:its 22.214.171.124-r1, btw.
too late, Pixel chromium had V23 build in.DNPNWO wrote:It is v23 now, and here is what i used to install/update to v23 Pepperflash in Chromium Browser (all versions).cjan wrote:its 126.96.36.199-r1, btw.
I currently use Chromium Browser v50 (so I can do Fullscreen smooth720p Youtube playback without stuttering/stops/buffering. I am also slightly overclocked as well). I was on Pepperflash v21, and it was easy to update it to v23 (easy instructions- copy /paste).
I do not use PIXEL, or even have it installed.cjan wrote: too late, Pixel chromium had V23 build in.
Then there is this on the Linux reddit as well-PIXEL is not an OS it is an LXDE (desktop environment). A skin over the Raspbian/Debian Jessie OS on linux kernel 4.4.21.
PIXEL breaks OPENGL/WEBGL driver compatibility, It breaks Chromium Browser (try fullscreen 720p Youtube).
The PIXEL images are licensed for only 10 years use, and cannot be redistributed by a third party (that means you cannot also redistribute Rasbian/Debian Jessie if it contains the PIXEL images). Commercial entities are prohibited from using PIXEL (or redistributing the images in their product as well). By using/having the images, you indemnify the rights holder/agent, and you can be sued for improper use/redistribution.
I think this is a bit of a shame, because it's further evidence that the Pi Foundation people aren't really well embedded in the F/OSS community they build upon. I read the blog post that unveiled the PIXEL desktop and thought "that looks pretty good". It wasn't clear in that post that the backgrounds (which were talked about, the primary designer got them from one of the other Foundation staffers) would be licensed non-free. I was thinking of looking at packaging the theme for Debian, alas, I would have to strip the wallpapers if I do.
Yeah, it is quite sad that the people who volunteer/work for the Pi Foundation aren't embedded in the FOSS community, but I see why. The prime person behind the PIXEL desktop was a Windows guy prior to working on that project, and a few of the founders of the Pi Foundation were Broadcom employees, hence the choice of chipset and the surrounding issues with having a closed source stack to even boot the board.
FOSS has been an afterthought throughout the project, which has hampered usability and started the community surrounding the Pi off on the wrong foot in terms of FOSS as a concept. IMO its also hampered students from using the Pi, but I only have anecdotal evidence to back that assertion up

Nice off-topic rant, Apple banned Flash Support because it is nigh impossible to plug the security holes Adobe Flash and PepperFlash have, HTML5 Video will replace Flash eventually, just takes time to ensure that it is fit for purpose.zermok wrote:I will never understand why today flash is banned from mobile device. millions of websites
does not have time and money to reprogram everything for the sake of html5
so I suspect that soon pepper flash will finally fill the stupid steve jobs hole that blocked millions websites to be viewed on mobile devices.
