Windows 8.1 not recognizing Adobe Flash Player and Adobe help not helpful

I have a new laptop with Windows 8.1 64 bit. I tried to view a video and it said I did not have flash player. I went to download adobe flash player and your website said I had it intergrated into 8.1 and that it was either disabled, not the right version or that active X filters needed to be clear. I followed all instructions. Flash was installed with the 8.1 64 bit version. Flash was enabled for all websites and I cleared the active X filter and I still get told that I don't have install flash because it is intergrated and but it does not work. Please help I am in a cycle where Adobe is not helping just sending me in a circle. Thank you

Your problems aren't with Adobe or Flash Player. They're with Internet explorer 11 and Microsoft.
IE11 (Windows 7, 8 & 8.1) has been an abomination since its release October 18, 2013. Yahoo, Facebook, BBC, ESPN and dozens of other sites and domains have had trouble recognizing the Browser. If the site doesn't recognize the browser, it won't recognize any plugins in the browser, including Flash Player. Microsoft was made aware of the problems by millions of users within hours of the release, and so far they've shown no sign that they intend to fix it anytime soon. Their recommendation is to enable Compatibility View for affected pages. Two problems with that are that it's had only limited success, and you must enable it manually for each affected page. Basically, they're telling you to "pretend" you're not using IE11.
I'm not big on "pretending", and I recommend actually using something different. Something that works where IE11 won't.
Firefox (from Mozilla)
Chrome (from Google)
Safari (from Apple)
Opera (from Opera)
ANY of those will work where IE isn't recognized, and they use the Flash Player Plug-in (for other browsers), except for Chrome, which has its own plugin embedded in by Google.

    adobe flash player and youtube are not working

    It seems that going to Preferences>Security> Check allow plug ins, then manage sites, and then allowing one site allows all??? Seems like a lot to go through.  I have installed the player 4 times now and just got it figured out!

    Ziatron is correct that Flash does not work on an iPad, but it does work on a Mac. See Adobe Flash Player

  • About Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader

    Hi folks,
    Archlinux 86-64 2007-08-2
    SeaMonkey 1.1.6,
    I need to install Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader
    I found following link; … _on_Arch64
    But not for Seamonkey.  Does it work on Seamonkey.  Besides it's flash plugin.  Would it be the same as Adobe Flash Player?
    Does 32bit Adobe Reader works on 64bit Seamonkey.  Where can I download it?  Where can I find its installation document?

    Assuming you had run

    it looks like the package didn't build.  Go back to your nspluginwrapper directory and run
    as your user, if this completes successfully it should create a file called something like
    probably in the current directory.  It may fail initially due to unsatisfied dependencies but you should be able to install them using pacman since I think all the lib32- stuff is in [Community] now.
    Thanks for your advice.

  • Adobe flash player and adobe shockwave

    both of them are not updating for me and im getting irritated about it

    Hello again,
    From the Shockwave FAQ page:
    Flash and Shockwave Players are both free web Players from Macromedia. Together, they bring you the best rich media content on the Internet. Each has a distinct purpose. Flash Player delivers fast loading front-end web applications, high-impact web site user interaction, interactive online advertising, and short to medium form animation.
    Shockwave Player displays destination web content such as interactive multimedia product demos and training, e-merchandising applications, and rich-media multi-user games. Through Xtras, Shockwave Player is also extendable to playback custom-built applications.

  • Flash Player And adobe reader not working and downloads don't work

    I have IE 8 and windows vista and everything has worked great for 2 years until 2 or 3 weeks ago.  At that time my flash player stopped working so I could no longer get videos , streaming stock quotes, weather map loops, etc and when I go to websites that use Flash (i.e. Piaaz Hut) it wouldn't work.  Also, at that same time my adobe reader stopped working properly and I can't view mosy PDF Files.
    I have gone through many of the posts on this forum and have tried many of the fixes, but none have work for me.
    I tried to uninstall the Flash Player, but I didn't use the Adobe uninstaller.
    Whenever I try to update or load the Flash player, a dialog box with the globe tossing papers to the folder appears and then after a few seconds I get the the message that IE can't install_flash_player_ax.exe from fp, and then a message that says IE was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found.
    In control panel programs I have listed
    Adobe AIR      no size
    Adobe Flash Player 10 active X           no size
    Adobe Reader 9.3     141mb
    Macromedia Shockwave player      no size
    In Tools i have the following add ons and they are all enabled
    Shockwave Flash object
    Adobe PDF Link Helper
    Adobe PDF Reader
    Macromedia Shockwave Active X Control 10.1
    As I said I've already attempted a number of the fixes on this forum, but so far no luck.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on what else I might try?

    Ok, I tried to download the firefox browser but IE wouldn't let me download it.  My friend downloaded it from their computer to a flash drive and I loaded it to my computer from the flash drive.  The download of Firefox from the flash drive worked, and now I'm using Firefox & both my adobe flash player and my adobe reader are working just great.
    However, neither the flash player nor the reader are working if I use IE, so I guess I will just have to use Firefox as my browser.
    I'm going to mark my question as answered since I really don't care that I have to use Firefox instead of IE,although I can't understand why it works using Firefox but not using IE.
    Thank you so much for your assistance in walking me step-by-step through this problem until I was able to reach a satisfactory solution.

    I have a windows phone and I am trying to install Adobe flash player and can't. How can I install it to my phone?

    Flash Player is not supported on Windows Phone.  At this time, there are no plans to support Windows Phone.  I am not aware of alternatives on Windows Phone OS for viewing Flash content.
