Lightspark fixes YouTube support, adds audio plugin framework

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

“Another week, another bug fix release for Lightspark!” starts the release announcement on SSSUP‘s blog, which goes on to assure that YouTube support has been fixed and a new plugin-based audio-framework – allowing the flash-alternative to use alternative audio back-ends than PulseAudio – is introduced


If you’re not already using the Lightspark PPA in conjunction with Lightspark then you are, what I like to call, crazy! You’ll automatically be kept up-to-date with the latest fixes and features.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sssup/sssup-ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lightspark

Remember that you cannot have both Adobe Flash and Lightspark installed at the same time.
