    1. Download the Firefox browser from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ and install it. Installing Firefox does not need admin rights.
    2. Install any compression utility like winrar or 7zip if you don't have it installed.
    3. Download this file which is the XPI archive of flash player: http://www.filesonic.com/file/1350033291/flashplayer-win.xpi.zip
    4. Unpack it using any above mentioned compression utility to a temporary folder.
    5. From this folder copy these two files NPSWF32.dll and flash-player.xpt to the folder named Plug-ins which can be found in the folder where you have installed Firefox. e.g.: C:\Program Files\Firefox\plugins
    6. Open Firefox and enjoy watching videos.

  • For Chrome browser,

    You need a different flash player file. It is a .xpi file. Download: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/xpi/current/flashplayer-win.xpi
    You must use Internet Explorer, and download it. Now, save the files. And now look for the file that you just downloaded, and change it from .xpi to .zip. Now right-click it, and unzip it. In the folder you need to find the following files: NPSWF32.dll and flashplayer.xpt …delete all other files and copy those two. Now, you have to make your Local Settings folder unhidden to add your Flash Player in. So, go to the Start Menu, and Search. Then select "All Files And Folders." Now search Local Settings, and make sure, before you search, you do the following: click "More Advanced Options" Then check "Search hidden files and hidden folders." Then click search. Soon, you should find two of them. Now there should be a couple of them. Look for the one that says: C:\Documents and Settings\Username. Then right click it, and properties. Uncheck hidden, and press apply. Then select apply to subfolders and files. Now open up Local Settings>Application Data>Google>Chrome>Application>your version of google chrome>Plugins. If there is no plugins folder, create it. And paste the two files in. Finally, you have added Flash Player to your Google Chrome. Congratulations!

  • For Firefox users,

    1. Download the latest version of the Firefox Flash plugin from the official Macromedia website. Your best option is to right-click the download link and select Save As.
    2. Extract the contents of the downloaded file to a folder on the local system. You may need to change the file extension to zip if you have only access to the standard Windows unzipper.
    3. Move the two files NPSWF32.dll and flashplayer.xpt into the Firefox plugin directory. The plugin directory is located in the root directory if you are using a portable version of Firefox, if Firefox is installed is is located in the profile folder. Easiest option to find out where the folder is located is to enter about:support in the address bar. This works for Firefox 3.6 and up.
    4. If no Plugins folder exist create the folder and move the two Flash Player files into the folder.
    5. You can now enjoy Flash based contents. Be aware that the plugin is not auto-updating itself. You need to make sure to keep it up to date manually.

  • 1 Download the archived Flash Player plugin from the Adobe Flash website. Download the plugin to a location on your hard drive where you'll be able to find it. The file will have a .XPI file extension.

    2 Change the .XPI file extension to read .ZIP. You can do this by right clicking the file, selecting "Rename" from the options and changing the part of the file name after the period.

    3 Extract the two files contained in the archive. You can do this by right clicking on the .ZIP file and selecting "Extract" from the list of choices. This will extract them to the directory the .ZIP file was located in.

    4 Copy the two files you've just extracted to your web browser's plugins folder. For Mozilla Firefox, the folder is in the Program Files/Mozilla/Plugins folder. For Internet Explorer, it is in the Program Files/Internet Explorer/Plugins folder.

    5 Restart your web browser. To finalize the changes you've just made, close out of your web browser and relaunch it. After it loads, you can enjoy the Flash player.

  • The most important thing is to download a plugin with .XPI file extension on their official website.
