www/linux-c6-flashplugin24 disappeared?

After luckily updating from 11 to 24 version of www/linux-c6-flashplugin24 now I see that previously installed via port linux-c6-flashplugin-24.0.0.186 is orphaned, there's no its directory in /usr/ports/www. How 's that? Nothing in UPDATING file also.
 
Apparently, you should now use www/linux-flashplayer. From the commit message :
- Combine linux-c6-flashplugin24 and linux-c7-flashplugin24 into one distro
independent port like other Linux application ports.
- Rename flashplugin to flashplayer to match upstream.
- Tell users to mount linprocfs.
- Remove reference to special FreeBSD license. The official license is no
longer restricted to officially supported operating systems.
- Create www/flashplayer which runs nspluginwrapper on installation.

This is also mentioned in the MOVED file : https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-ports/blob/0d6a41dc5378a90963041c0d7b87ee5fc2ab462b/MOVED#L8845

Oh, thank you a lot. That was not that obvious way to update. And no instructions. Thank you. Now it seems O.K.
 
Not exactly what you asked for, but you can bypass flash completely by streaming with smplayer and mpv.
 
I've been having a problem for quite a while updating www/linux-c6-curl due to a security vulnerability but is required. Last night, I uninstalled whichever version of flashplayer I had and tried installing www/flashplayer and it also failed to install curl for the same reason.
 
It is vulnerable, as it frequently happen with lagging linux- ports. You may manually install it with supposed option (written with the error message). Or there's some other error?
 
Code:
pkg delete www/linux-c6-flashplugin24 www/nspluginwrapper
portinstall www/flashplayer
worked for me.

Do you need nspluginwrapper still or no, please? I did delete both and install linux-flashplayer but it didn't install nspluginwrapper again.
I have in Firefox:
Code:
about:plugins
Shockwave Flash
File: npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
Path: /usr/home/ajtim/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
Version:
State: Enabled
Shockwave Flash 24.0 r0

but when I am going to test on Adobe site and other it doesn't work.

(Unfortunately, Flash video is still faster than HTML5 video on YouTube, and Flash is sometimes needed not for bare multimedia too. Not sure, multimtdia/mpv can help me surf YouTube.)
 
Smtube is a youtube browsing front end for Smplayer. I've not personally had any performance problems using Mplayer to stream youtube.
