How to Install Adobe Flash Player for Samsung Galaxy

About a year ago, Adobe decided to stop the support for Flash on the Android platform. So if you've tried watching a video that requires Adobe Flash Player installed on your Samsung Galaxy, say Amazon Instant Video and South Park Studios, you may probably get the "Flash Player is not installed" message.

To help you solve this problem, I’m going to show you how to install Adobe Flash Play on your Samsung Galaxy devices. This will enable you to watch Flash videos or play some optimized Flash-based games.

1 Enable "Unknown Sources"

Since Adobe Flash is no longer available in the Google Play Store, you may go to Menu -> Settings -> Security and check “Unknown sources to install 3rd party applications. You can disable it again after you're done.

2 Download Flash Player from Adobe's Archive Site

Fortunately, Adobe keeps an archive of previous versions of their software. So you can download flash player from this site. Click the link from your phone to download the final version of Adobe Flash Player APK file.

3 Install Adobe Flash on your phone

After downloading the APK, find wherever you place the file. Then install it like any other app, and then you'll notice that Flash Player will appear in your app drawer. But you don't need to use it as the plugin needs to run from within a browser. However, if you use Chrome for Android as your browser, Flash will not work whether it's installed or not since Chrome doesn't support plugins. So you may download another browser that supports plugins, like Firefox for Android.
