Youtube videos not working asking for flash plugin | How to install adobe-flash player in (Debian based)Linux?

1.  Download the adobe-flash player from -> https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

2.  Select ".tar.gz for other linux" then click on "Download now"
        Note:  If you are using debian or rpm based linux then select your option accordingly.

3.  Unpack the download file (Right-click on the file and select -> "Extract here")
        (Note:  There will be a readme.txt file inside the extracted directory (like install_flash_player_11_linux.i386).  This file contains the detailed instructions for installation for all the flavours of Linux.)

4.  copy the "libflashplayer.so" file into following directories

        a. /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/
        b. /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
        If you have chromium browser then copy the file into
        c. /usr/lib/chromium/plugins/
5.    Test the flash plugin -> Close the browsers (if already opened) then start again.
        Now, open youtube and check the videos will play like charm.
