Question

Recommended Posts

  • -1

The developer reports that he has completed the integration of the new HTML-5 based Video Chat into our forum platform.  This topic is being closed.  If you have a problem with or a question about the new Video Chat, please start a new topic here in the Tech Support forum.

Thanks to all of you for sticking with us through the transition.  Thanks to @JTT for finding the new chat system, hiring and overseeing the work of the outside developer to integrate it with our forum platform.  And thanks to the developer for his quick response to our project.

Video Chat is down until we can find and install a satisfactory replacement that does not rely on Flash Video.  @JTT is working on that.

We had expected that Flash Video would remain available, simply with no support, for a considerable time.  But it turns out that Adobe has taken active steps to block the continued use of Flash Video.

PS:  Other Adobe products are not affected by the End of Life event for their Flash Video product.  Adobe has NOT gone away.

I really have to ask, it seems that some other sites still have their video capabilities, are they using flash or another platform?

Definitely not Flash, which has vanished into the Great Ethers. I'll hazard a guess they are using HTML-5.

I've been able to get into chat since I did not uninstall flash. I've seen two other users have been there recently Ted and blueeyes. A lot of browsers have also blocked the plugin but there are some still allow it's activation and use.

I read in one article (so much on the subject) that the last update of Flash had it built in to turn off playing content on 1/12/2021. I'm thinking if you didn't install that update the content would still work. Ted great tip on Linux! Probably will wait for the new one at this point. See you all back there soon!
