stand alone flashplayer [Solved]

Post by portamenteff » Tue Oct 20, 2009 9:51

It seems to me that many Linux users are asking me in chatrooms how to get the Linux stand alone Flashplayer working.
Fortunately for us Sabayon users, we can use XBMC. I just clicked "videos", then "add source"," browse" browsed to that directory and added the .flv files I wanted. They all played.
Yeah- It's that simple.

But VLC also plays .flv files. And so does SMPlayer (MPlayer). And so does Xine. And probably most of the other media players for Linux. At least on my PCs they do.
