A new version of flash-alternative ‘Lightspark’ has been released.

Notable changes since the last major release including a ‘new Advanced Graph­ics Engine, that should pro­vide smoother and faster graph­ics’ and, much the delight of many users, it is finally pos­si­ble to use Play/Pause on YouTube under Lightspark.


Lightspark can be installed via its own PPA @ ppa:sssup/sssup-ppa. To install via the Terminal run: –

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

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

Note that Lightspark requires Adobe Flash removed before installation.
