Adobe Flash Player 10.3 Direct Download Links for Windows & Mac

[UPDATE – Looking for a newer version? See the direct download links for Flash Player 11.]

Adobe Flash Player 10.3 is out!

In our tradition of providing the direct download links for major Adobe products such as Creative Cloud, CS6, Acrobat XI, Photoshop & Premiere Elements 12, and Lightroom 5, below you’ll find the DDL for the just-released new Adobe Flash Player 10.3 (final version). This is important because the free Flash Player is the most widely-used and often-downloaded software in world, and some folks find it easier to access offline without a download manager (Akamai or Adobe DLM), or with their own DLM, and without additional products or toolbars included.

What’s New in Flash Player 10.3?

Flash Player 10.3 improves stability, enhances security and user privacy protection, and provides new desktop video and audio capabilities for enterprises and developers.

Besides a dozen bug fixes, this release contains several new features and enhancements:

  • Integration with Browser Privacy Controls – Users now have a simpler way to clear local storage (“Flash cookies”) from the browser settings interface – similar to how users clear their browser cookies today. These controls are integrated with the browser’s privacy settings in Firefox 4, IE 8 and higher, Chrome 11, and a future release of Apple Safari.
  • Local Native Control Panel – Provides users with streamlined controls for managing their Flash Player privacy, security and storage settings. Windows, Mac, and Linux users can access the Flash Player Settings Manager directly from the Control Panels or System Preferences locally on their computers.
  • Acoustic Echo Cancellation – Developers can take advantage of acoustic echo cancellation, noise suppression, voice activity detection, and automatic compensation for various microphone input levels. End-users will be able to experience higher quality audio facilitating smoother conversation flow, without using a headset.
  • Media Measurement – Allows real-time, aggregated reporting of how their video content is distributed, what the audience reach is, and how much video is played.
  • Auto-Update Notification for Mac OS – Supports automatic notification of software updates on Mac OS, making it easier for Mac users to stay current with new capabilities in the latest version of Flash Player.

  6. I had a problem with the latest Flash Player 11 because it couldn’t play any Flash banners on my sites, for example the one on our homepage.

    So thanks for having the Flash Player 10 – I’ve removed the latest release, reinstalled the lower version 10 and everything is playing again.

    At times the newer updates have bugs they’ve not fixed yet. Thanks!

    Flash Player 10.3 is better than 11.1.
    Flash Player 11.1 is using a lot more CPU time.

    Okay…… I’ve attempted to download Adobe Flash Player multiple times to NO avail. I have a new Acer computer that, to this point, I have thoroughly enjoyed. BUT I try to download and install the Adobe, and NOTHING, either it fails to download completely, or it gets so far, and says it is unable to contact a proper site to complete the download. this leaves me unable to update my Flash Player for the Internet, to which, I use Firefox and Safari, and occasionally, IE9. So, what’s up with this? How do I get this done so I can use the full aspects of the Internet? or do I just kiss Adobe off and see if Apple has anything to outdo this? getting kind of frustrated with this……?????

    • Hi Hal, sorry you’re having difficulty… We just tested all the download links above again, and they are working fine on our end. You could try a different browser, computer, and/or Internet connection (no Wi-Fi).

      Also note this: “Adobe recommends temporarily turning off any surfing restrictions you might have running, like site or cookie blocking, filtering, firewalls or antivirus software.”

      Hope that helps!

    I am having issues with Adobe, I cannot get it to work with Firefox, and that is COMPLETELY ridiculous, all of your upgrades should be comparable with all browsers

  14. DON OCONNELL

    COULD NOT AGREE MORE WITH WHAT FRANKI SAID – I am having issues with Adobe, I cannot get it to work with Firefox, and that is COMPLETELY ridiculous, all of your upgrades should be comparable with all browsers – WTH IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??? I MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING AND YOU MUST BE GETTING PAID BY MICROSOFT, I HAVE BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS FOR SEVERAL MONTHS WITH YOUR “PROGRAM” I HAVE INSTALLED, UNINSTALLED AND BACK AGAIN…. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER AND GET THIS RIGHT!!!!!

  15. DON OCONNELL

    I HAVE TRIED 11.3 SEVERAL TIMES, I FIND IT RIDICULOUS THAT YOU GAVE FRANKI, I DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT GARBAGE TALK. I UNINSTALLED 11.3, HELL, IT IS BETTER THEN IT CONSTANTLY CRASHING MY PC… I WANT A LINK TO WHATEVER VERSION IS KNOWN TO WORK WITH FF AND IS STABLE… IS THERE SUCH A THING… YES I AM EXTREMELY AGGRAVATED AT YOUR 11.3/FF ISSUES

  16. DON OCONNELL

    FINALLY, IF I AM DIRECTING MY ANGER AT THE WRONG PEOPLE I DO APOLOGIZE…. I HAVE HAD DAILY ISSUES WITH THIS PRODUCT, PLEASE PROVIDE SOME DIRECTION – TY

  17. Aaron

    The links are no longer valid, and do not work anymore.

    • Thank you for your comment Aaron. Only one of the links wasn’t working anymore – the FP 10.3 for non-IE browsers – and that’s because Adobe had quietly changed the filename from “install_flash_player_10.exe” to “install_flash_player_10_plugin.exe”, which we figured out after a little fishing…

      Anyway, that link has been updated – so now everything above is working again. Thanks for the heads-up.

      There are also the direct download links for FP 11, for those who want them as well.

    im extremely frustrated, 4 days I’ve tried to install adobe flash. im new to this computer, like a baby. i thought it was me, doing something wrong. i wish someone would install it for me.

    what is a plugin? my comp said it needs a plugin. brand new i-mac safari, shouldn’t it already have it in it? it says it is installing but nothing more happens. please… help

    • Not sure Lynette, but if you’ve got a brand new computer then you should be installing the latest version instead: Adobe Flash Player 11.

      It should just be a simple matter of following the instructions on that page.

      This page is for an older release of Flash Player which may not run or be supported on your new system.

    I have been having the same problems with the new Adobe Flashplayer 11.6. I reverted back to Adobe Flashplayer 10.3 which you can download from this page and now I am not having any problems and the videos play nice again. I am going to wait until Adobe comes up with a better newer version.

    hi, my system configuration is windows 7 home premium (64bit), i tried to install flash player on my system but i couldn’t do that. I even tried flash 10.3 today, but that is throwing an error as “the version of adobe you are trying isn’t an up-to-date version” – but for my work to be done, my flash player version must be within 8-11 (some predefined requirement).

    can you guide me with a solution, so that i can complete my work as soon as possible.

  22. ranjini

    hi, i have installed flash player 11, but still when i tried to open certain course materials, it is showing an error as, “you need to install a flash 6 plugin”. can you please tell me what else i have to install to overcome this error.

  23. Sally G

    Hmm, just started to comment, but others said it first; this link leads to 11, not 10.3; I have an Intel iMac with OSX 10.5.8; really need 10.3.193.90; anything?

    • Hi Sally, very puzzled by your comment – because these links are for Flash Player version 10…

      We just tested all of the three direct links above (including for Mac OS), and they all download as “Adobe® Flash® Player Installer/Uninstaller 10.3 r183.90.”

  24. Les Manthe

    Flash player 11 will not run on my system, I keep getting warnings there is something wrong – so I go back to version 10, and it works fine.
