After Adobe stopped developing Flash updates for Linux, new alternatives have appeared to be able to play Flash contents without any problems. One of them is Gnash. It's a free Flash player for Linux, that has appeared as a fork of GameSWF. GNU Gnash can work both as an independent player as well as a plug-in for a web browser.
- Gnash supports the vast majority of the features of the SWF format in its version 7, and some of the features of versions 8 and 9.
- Supports mouse wheel scrolling, clipboard and screen resolution.
- Includes support for script limits so as to establish a time limit for the appearance of pop-up windows.
- Works with web browsers like Firefox, SeaMonkey, Chromium or Konqueror.
- API for hardware-based 2D acceleration.
- Improved support for tactile screens.
The alternative to Adobe Flash for Linux.
Therefore, if you use the Linux operating system and you don't use Chrome as your web browser, Gnash is the best option to play Flash format files without any kind of complication.
