Hi,

In my flash player settings manager it shows that I have...

ActiveX Version: 14.0.0.145
Plug-in  Version: 14.0.0.145
Pepper Version:  Not Installed

Can't I just install the pepper version from Adobe?
If so, I can't find it on any download pages.

I don't want to install Google Chrome just to make CD flash work.

Been patiently waiting for the official fix. 

Is it Google, Comodo, or Adobe that needs to fix the choppy flash video problem?

Hi Jamin4u,
As a workaround without actually installing Chrome, you can use the portable version of Chrome to grab a copy of the PepperFlash folder and contents.
I copy the PepperFlash folder from 'C:\Install location\GoogleChromePortable\App\Chrome-bin\Version number' and paste it into Dragons install location 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Comodo\Dragon'.
You can then delete the Chrome portable folder if desired to do so.

Kind regards.
A good read guaranteed.

Thanks captainsticks, that works just fine without installing Chrome.

Although, that means manually updating pepperflash.

Is there a way to install the Adobe pepper version just like the activex and plug-in version?

There is, but when I tried, Dragon did not find it.

Thanks for the link JoWa.

The page contains beta versions and the content debugger for PPAPI based browsers.

I can't find a regular Adobe pepperflash install file.  As you pointed out, CD only looks in the CD install location for pepperflash.

If these two things changed, this issue would be resolved.

From what I read on Wikipedia they will...

In September 2013, Google announced that NPAPI support in Chrome would be phased out during 2014 because "NPAPI’s 90s-era architecture has become a leading cause of hangs, crashes, security incidents, and code complexity.

Yes, only a debugger is available. The debugger works with Opera 24+ and Chrome, but currently not with Dragon. Comodo is working on a solution, but I have no further details on that.

And yes, that is correct about NPAPI: http://blog.chromium.org/2014/05/update-on-npapi-deprecation.html NPAPI is already removed from Chromium for Linux.
