    Adobe is planning to stop support of the flash player in linux.

    Is this correct and if so,what viable alternatives are there.?

    Hi The Red Moon,

    This only means that there will never be an 11.3 Adobe Flashplayer, and so Adobe keeps on updating its Linux Flashplayer 11.2.202....

    This also does not mean that Adobe Flashplayer for Linux version 11.2.202.346 will be the last one yet.

    Hi, you've asked this before :)

    We still have about 3 years before Adobe stops support.

    I would avoid Flash anyway if possible. At the moment I don't have it installed on any of my computers, and I'm not missing it at all...

    Me too. I only have Flash on Virtual Machines, just because some sites still use this poor software.

    The good thing is that Youtube is almost 100% working with HTML5. At least on Chromium, I can see 99% of the videos I open.

    I haven't used Flash since I migrated to Linux either. Whatever won't play on youtube using HTML5, I can easily download using Flashgot. I tried Gnash, but it was a little too buggy.
