Most users, when they go to many popular sites and watch, say, videos, do not even think that without such a necessary program as Adobe Flash Player, they would not be able to do this! In this article, I would like to touch upon a few questions about how to download and install this very Flash Player. For most users, as a rule, everything works right away with an automatic installation, but some have to install not the newest version of the flash player (+ pretty much suffer with the setup). These are all the problems we will touch upon in this article.
Regardless of what browser you have (Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome), there will be no difference in installing and downloading the player.
1) How to download and install Adobe Flash Player in automatic mode
Most likely, in the place where some video file refuses to play, the browser often determines what is missing and may even redirect you to the page where you can download the Adobe Flash Player. But it's better not to run into a virus, go to the official website yourself, the link below:
http://get.adobe.com/ru/flashplayer/ – official site (Adobe Flash Player)

By the way! Do not forget to update your browser before the procedure if you have not done this for a long time.
Two points should be drawn here (see Fig. 1):
- first, whether your system (left, approximately in the center) and browser were detected correctly;
- and second, uncheck the product you don't need.
Then click install now and go directly to downloading the file.

After the file is downloaded to your PC, run it and confirm further installation. By the way, many services that distribute all sorts of viral teasers and other annoying programs embed warnings on various sites that your Flash Player needs updating. I advise you not to follow these links, but download all updates only from the official website.

Close all browsers before clicking next, so as not to cause an installation error during operation.

If everything was done correctly, and the installation was successful, the following window should appear (see Fig. 5). If everything began to work (video clips on the sites began to play, and without jerks and brakes), then the Flash Player installation is complete for you! If you have problems, go to the second part of the article.

2) 'Manual' installation of Adobe Flash Player
It often happens that the automatically selected version works very badly, often freezes, or refuses to open any files at all. If similar symptoms are observed, then you should try to uninstall the current version of the flash player and try to select the manual version.
Follow the same link http://get.adobe.com/ru/flashplayer/ and select the item as shown in Figure 6 (player for another computer).

Next, a menu should appear, which will indicate several versions of operating systems and a browser. Choose the ones you use. The system itself will offer you the version, and you can proceed to download.

If after installing Flash Player it again refuses to work for you (for example, video on Youtube will freeze, slow down), then you can try installing an older version. Not always the latest 11 version of the flash player is the most-most.

Slightly below (see Fig. 8), under the OS selection, you can see another link, and we will follow it. A new window should open in which you can see dozens of different versions of the player. You just have to experimentally choose a working one. Personally, I myself sat for a long time on the 10th version of the player, despite the fact that 11 had already been released, just at that time, the 11th simply hung on my computer.
