Adobe Flash and Maxthon

5 posts in this topic

Maxthon comes with a version of Adobe Flash to ensure the browser is able to play all Flash content upon installation, although this version isn't always the most recent. This is to ensure that any issues related to new releases of Flash don't cause issues with Maxthon. You can force Maxthon to use the most current version of Flash by following the instructions below.

 


 

The most recent version of Adobe Flash is available from here: http://get.adobe.com/flash

The "Allow all sites to run plug-ins" option must be enabled in Settings > Advanced.

An auto-updater tool has been created by Truuuc which automates the procedures below.

 


 

If you have any issues with the above, please follow the descriptions linked below.

For Maxthon 5.x & 4.9.x follow the instructions in this post.

For Maxthon 4.4.x and earlier follow the instructions in this post.

NOTE: The information below is for Maxthon 4.9.x & 5.x releases.
For Maxthon 4.4.x and earlier releases see this post.

 


 

Update to the most recent version of Flash from here: http://get.adobe.com/flash

The page will show that it has detected Chrome. If not, check that the default user agent is in use.

Click "Do you have a different operating system or browser?"

Select your Operating System from the dropdown menu.

Select "FP for Opera and Chromium - PPAPI" to install the correct version for Maxthon to use.

Press the download button on the right and let the installer run.

Close Maxthon.

Open an Explorer window (Win+E) and go to the folder you installed Maxthon to, then navigate to the \Core\Blink\plugins folder.

NOTE: Default install folders are:
For 32bit OS - C:\Program Files\Maxthon
For 64bit OS C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxthon

In this folder there should be a file called pepflashplayer.dll. Rename (eg. append .org to the filename) or delete this file only. Renaming is the recommended option.

Copy pepflashplayer32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll from the windows folder to the Maxthon \Core\Blink\plugins folder, and rename it to pepflashplayer.dll.

The file is found in the following locations:
For 64bit OS C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
For 32bit OS C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash

Restart Maxthon & goto http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

The page should show the current version installed and the most recent version available, both of which should match.

Maxthon is now using the current version of Flash.

If everything was done correctly you should have something similar to the following image, and a plugins folder as below.

Open up an Explorer window (Win+E) and go to the folder you installed Maxthon to then navigate to the Core\Webkit\Npplugins folder.

NOTE: Default install folders are:
For 32bit OS - C:\Program Files\Maxthon
For 64bit OSC:\Program Files (x86)\Maxthon

In this folder there should be a file called NPSWF32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll (the X's are the flash version). Rename (eg. append .org to the filename) or delete this file only. Renaming is the recommended option.

Restart Maxthon & goto http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Should the above not work, you can try copying the NPSWF32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll file from C:\Windows\Syswow64\Macromed\Flash (for 64bit) or C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash (for 32bit) and paste it into Core\Webkit\Npplugins.

In order to replace the flash dll, you can download and run this very convenient tool (By Truuuc) : http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/2583-maxthon-flash-language-updater/

There are 2 versions : a french version which also updates the french language files and removes all language files but english and french, and an english version

No installation but you need to run it after each maxthon update.
