    Anyone heard of Pipelight?

    Pipelight is a wrapper for using Windows plugins in Linux browsers

    Looks like it uses Wine, but how the heck does it allow plugins in native browsers?
    The reason I was searching is because I'm testing Unity and Flash in PlayOnLinux again.
    I have to install Firefox in PlayOnLinux, then install Flash Player and Unity Web Player.
    But the first problem I'm having is Firefox 36 is freezing because of javascripts running in websites.
    Totally unusable.

    Nice! No one has mentioned these before, so of course I'm very interested.
    Specially with Web Games.

    So how exactly do you install the Windows Flash Player and Unity Web Player in Linux?

    Chromium and Google Chrome should have the latest flash player enabled as a plugin by default (that is the latest windows version). I don't know about the Unity Web Player, never tried that.

    I'll have to read the instructions again. I understand how to enable plugins, but didn't see how to install the plugin.
    Probably a command line

    Yes, you have to manage pipelight in the command line.

    I'm ok with that
    If the steps and hoops are complicated and rediculous, then I'll have to pass, but if its easier than my current guide (which is over a year old) then I'll have to update my guide.
