QML WebView Flash does not play

  • I have not been able to get flash to play when running the following qml script with qmlviewer.

    import QtQuick 1.0
    import QtWebKit 1.0

    WebView {
    id: webView
    width: 1280
    height: 720
    settings.pluginsEnabled: true
    url: ""

    I am using Qt 4.8.2 and this does not work on Windows 7 or my Debian Linux distro. When trying to play youtube flash content I get the message:

    The Adobe Flash Player or an HTML5 supported browser is required for video playback.

    Running the demo QDeclarative => webbrowser in qmlviewer yields the same result.

    I am able to play this content on IE 8 and in Chrome. What plugin am I supposed to use that my WebView will recognize? Isn't it supposed to share the same plugin that Chrome uses since they are both WebKit based?

    Thanks for the help.
