Chromium doesn't display Flash in Debian Wheezy

Since Google phased out the NPAPI, it cannot use flashplugin-nonfree. I understand it needs to use pepperflashplugin-nonfree, but it’s not available in the repos.

Is it because of my /etc/apt/sources.list? It looks like that now:

deb wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src wheezy main contrib non-free
deb wheezy/updates main
deb-src wheezy/updates main
deb wheezy-updates main
deb-src wheezy-updates main

Any changes I should make there? Or how do I install pepperflashplugin-nonfree?

You answered your own question, pepperflashplugin-nonfree is the way to go.

In your case, you need to enable the wheezy-backports repository, adding the following line to your sources.list:

deb wheezy-backports main contrib non-free

Then, update the list of available packages with apt-get update, and finally install it with

apt-get -t wheezy-backports install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
