Adobe Flash is proprietary software and hence Fedora does not include it by default.

Flash plugin

You need to set up Adob'e repository first.

x86_64 (64-bit)

Click here.

or use a terminal:

sudo yum -y install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

x86 (32-bit)

Click here.

or use a terminal:

sudo yum -y install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

You then need to install the plugin from the repository:

sudo yum -y install flash-plugin

NOTE: For Fedora 22+, please replace yum with dnf.

Checking the plugin in Firefox

Type the following text in the Firefox address bar:

about:plugins

Also check the Adobe Flash Player test page

Installing the plugin on Chromium web browser

Some extra steps are required to use the plugin with Chromium. After you've installed the plugin as detailed above:

On 64-bit, create a symbolic link that tells Chromium how to find the 64-bit plugin:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/plugins/libflashplayer.so

On 32-bit, create a symbolic link that tells Chromium how to find the 32-bit plugin:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/libflashplayer.so

Exit all Chromium windows and restart Chromium. In the Chromium address bar, type "about:plugins" to check whether the plugin loaded. You may have to re-run Chromium with the --enable-plugins command line switch to force Chromium to re-scan its plugins folder.

Installing Gnash

There is a free and open source alternative called Gnash available in Fedora's software repositories. Gnash can play flash videos but the audio portion of flash is often under the MP3 format which is patent encumbered. Since Gnash uses Gstreamer, you can install the gstreamer codecs from RPM Fusion as detailed here: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques...

Gnash is very modular and includes plugins for Mozilla and Konqueror as well as a desktop player. You likely want the Mozilla plugin.

sudo yum -y remove nspluginwrapper 
sudo yum -y install gnash-plugin

If you use Konqueror as your web browser,

sudo yum -y install gnash-klash

If you would like to have a desktop flash player,

sudo yum -y install gnash

NOTE: For Fedora 22+, please replace yum with dnf.

As yet another alternative way to install Adobe's Flash plugin I have been using the repositories maintained by negativo17.

There are individual repositories for a limited set of proprietary packages that can't be included in Fedora straight away. The site has clear installation instructions and the packages are updated regularly.

I use chromium and official flash in fedora 16 x86_64. Chromium package is maintained by spot Download the .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d

Chromium

Select YUM option for flash plugin. Flash player

And install all:

sudo yum install chromium flash-plugin

Open chromium and about:plugins

Flash - Versión: 11.1.102 Shockwave Flash 11.1 r102

Easy, nice, and yum updates/configures all of them each time I need.

You can use the YUM repository definition to install Adobe Flash and keep up to date, follow the link in the list and select "YUM for Linux" and you'll get a package that adds Adobe official repositories.

If you installed Google Chrome from Google (http://www.google.com/chrome) or using the official Google Repo, the plug-in for Adobe Flash is already included.

What about Linux Package Factory flash-plugin package that is included with fedora?

I wish I could give a more definitive answer, but I just noticed it. Could be new to F20; I haven't seen it before. I just found the LPF-ized Skype package and it worked much better than the official pkg I downloaded from the Skype web-site. I'm hoping the same for flash-plugin, but haven't got around to trying it.

P.S. Gnash really seemed to not work at all for a couple years. I'm using it now, again, but doesn't work in a lot of cases.
