How to install Adobe Flash Player 24 Beta on Ubuntu 16.10

   Adobe Flash Player 24 drives innovation for rich, engaging digital experiences with new features for cross-platform browser-based viewing of expressive rich internet applications, content, and videos across devices. This beta release provides access to the Flash Player 24 runtime for Mac OS and Windows desktop environments.

   Adobe says it will release both the NPAPI and PPAPI (used in Chrome) versions of Flash Player for Linux. However, the NPAPI version will not support or add any advanced features and capabilities, like DRM, GPU acceleration, Stage 3D, etc.

Installation instructions: 

1. Install Flash Player 11.2 from Canonical Partners repository:

  •     Launch Software & Updates, and enable Canonical Partners repository in Other Software tab. Then close it.  
  •  Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command to install Adobe-flashplugin: 

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

2.  So far only 32-bit and 64-bit binaries of the 24 release are available for download at the link below:  Flash Player 24 Beta for Linux (NPAPI)

For Linux, the binary is just a file called: libflashplayer.so. To use it, do:

3.  Move the libflashplayer.so file you just downloaded to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/ folder by running the command:  

$ sudo mv ~/Downloads/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/

And change the ownership via: 

$ sudo chown root:root /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so

Finally restart Firefox browser and check your flash version:
