You can know more about your flash version used by Iceweasel on this page:

Deploy Freshplayerplugin

Freshplayerplugin is now in the jessie-backports repositories and those who are more recent. You just need to install the package browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash to enjoy it.

apt install browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

Compiling Freshplayerplugin

<!> Some libraries needed are missing in Wheezy, this method will work only work for Jessie. <!>

Requirement :

First, remove all the other flash plug-in to avoid conflict, then install the flash plug-in for Chromium : here.

Compiling Freshplayerplugin for Jessie


Make sure that you have access to the sources repository in order to start the compilation : see here

Install the required dependences for the compilation:

apt-get install cmake gcc g++ git pkg-config ragel libasound2-dev libssl-dev libglib2.0-dev libconfig-dev libpango1.0-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libevent-dev libgtk2.0-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libxcursor-dev libv4l-dev libgles2-mesa-dev libavcodec-dev libva-dev libvdpau-dev libdrm-dev libpulse-dev

As the project is still under development, this list can change. That can evolve with the needs.


Download and compile the source code in order to obtain the file:

git clone
cd freshplayerplugin
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..

Deploy the library

cp /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Restart Iceweasel for taking the change into account, and check that is working with the test here :

Update the flash plugin

In our case, the library make a link with the plug-inpepperflashplugin-nonfree. You just need to update the Chromium plug-in to enjoy the latest version of flash from Iceweasel: see here.

Depending on the development of the project Freshplayerplugin you can, optionally, update by restarting the compilation above.
