   My very limited understanding is that each is an interface to displaying
flash videos in a browser, with NPAPI being the older one originally
designed for Netscape.

   I watch very few videos (usually instructional ones) and no movies or TV
shows so I'm not deeply invested in them.

   Does it matter which I have installed, or if both are installed?
