>> [_] Anon 3469566 >># flash could stream external H.264 video just fine tho. a little later in the timeline most browsers could play H.264 video on their own just fine without "HTML5" or well, to be honest i'm a bit at a loss over exactly what "HTML5" means. This can play a video encoded with H.264 and contained in a mp4: <video width="1337"> <source src="filename.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> Is that just "html"? Or is it "html55555 (wow)"? Firefox 3.5 started supporting the video tag in June 2009.

[_] Anon 3439456 Good news everyone, Firefox can view flash files on /f/ again! I guess 4chan fixed their faulty server messages. Could this mean that someone in the staff actually gives a shit about /f/ after all? Or was it fixed just because it was something broken.
>> [_] Anon 3439465 >># oh good, that's one less extension I need running
>> [_] Anon 3439467 >># nvm, it's still broken for me
>> [_] Anon 3439471 >># Really? Maybe then it's Firefox that has changed something. Maybe they changed back to how it was before... /f/ works for me in Firefox 80.0.1. [Embed] does not work for me but opening the swf in a new tab works. It even works better than it did before, I've been having some serious performance issues with flash in Firefox, especially rendering where the screen even turned blank, but right now they work great.
>> [_] Anon 3439472 >># never had a problem viewing flashes in firefox. I would occasionally have to reload the page for them to work but all you need to do is clear the browser cache to fix that.
>> [_] Anon 3439475 >># Oh, that's what I did was try embed.
>> [_] Anon 3439476 >># wonder why embed doesn't work but opening in a new tab works. embed works on swfchan (just like it worked in the last version of firefox as well) so maybe it is Firefox that has changed something after all. and here i was hoping that the staff had noticed something was wrong with /f/ and fixed it.
>> [_] rant 3439489 What I fucking hate about this newer Firefox versions that it converts files other than what it actually is, from a single fucking PNG getting converted into .webp file for no fucking reason And what's the reply of the devs you ask? They were blaming it's the server side of the one holding the PNG file whereas the older version of firefox gets the PNG normally as it is. Fucking "Improvements" my ass
>> [_] Anon 3439495 >># you realize website can read the browser version and load a different image based on it? it's not firefox's fault. the website is brute-forcing doing basic html5 stuff.
>> [_] Anon 3439510 >># It's the server doing it. It spots that your browser is new enough that it should be able to read webp and sends that version instead to save bandwidth. I agree that it's annoying because you can't really do anything with webp images. So I just convert them to PNG... 4chan should support webp. They adopted webm and made it popular, should do the same with webp. I mean with all of hiroshimoot's whining about bandwidth you'd think he would jump right on board with the much smaller webp format. It really is an amazing format. He should of course still support PNG/JPG/GIF. webp can also be animated images just like gif ones btw, just smaller and with better quality. though those are rare and websites usually convert gif to mp4, which pisses me off. seems like thanks to twitter people call any short moving visual a gif, even if it is a movie format (maybe even if it has sound too)
>> [_] Anon 3439511 >># >usually convert gif to mp4, which pisses me off it pisses me off because it always wreck the quality. meanwhile in animated webp you'll see each pixel just like you would in a gif (none of those messy video formats). but browser and program support for animated webp is much lower than static webp files, don't know if that has changed much in later years
>> [_] Anon 3439529 >># wasn't webm itself supposed to be the gif killer already?
>> [_] Anon 3439541 >># webm is a movie format, with keyframes and non-keyframes and support for audio. it's good for showing stuff suitable for a video but it isn't an image format. say you have a pixel animation for example, you won't be able to show it with 100% sharp edges on the pixels if you use webm. with a gif, animated png or animated webp you can.

[_] Anon 3436043 hiroshimoot have added /vmg/ and /vrpg/ in i believe less than two weeks, he's flooding 4chan with boards that overlap in subjects (mobile and rpg stuff is still allowed on /v/ and /vg/ + you can post about mobile rpgs on both /vrpg/ and /vmg/). if he deletes /f/ --the single most unique board on the site-- i've lost all respect for him. there would be no reason because just like you can download exe files to run offline you can do the same with swf files.

>> [_] Anon 3436104 >># Adobe is on the hook for maintaining flash. Any time there's a security flaw, people blame them for it. Flash costs money to maintain and barely anyone uses it anymore. It is definitely in their interest to purge flash from the internet as much as possible. That being said, I sincerely doubt adobe gives a shit what 4chan does.

>> [_] Anon 3436122 if /f/ gets deleted where will we go?
>> [_] Anon 3436126 >># come to think of it, does he even read English well enough to want to visit 4chan? >># you said it yourself, barely anyone uses it anymore. if mainstream browsers drop support there's no reason to put 1000 hrs into "hacking flash" or whatever people think anyone can even do with flash at this point after 5 years of nothing but security patches and no new features. if barely anyone uses flash there's no gain in making a "security exploit" that sets a tracking cookie or whatever could be possible. and if there is you'd maybe get a few guys infected that knew the risks in still using flash in off-brand browsers. i think the kill switch was a step over the line for adobe. sadly the big corporations have successfully force-phased out flash for the last three years that nobody even cares outside our little bubble.
>> [_] Anon 3436128 What will happen to this board when flash finally dies this year?
>> [_] Anon 3436130 >># he can read and write English just fine. He went to school in Arkansas of all places. he just pretends to be retarded so that he doesn't have to take as much responsibility as moot did.

>> [_] Anon 3436139 >># I assumed that the editor-in-chief of Variety Japan would have at least some basic English comprehension (like an ability to write complete sentences) since his predecessor did. But looking into it more, the company which owns the English Variety just partnered with a company Hiro has some control over and that's how he got the position. Even his Linkedin page claims limited English ability (his French by comparison is "elementary").

>> [_] Anon 3376876 >># Any site focused on rpgmaker games, for instance. Actually, these days any indie-friendly digital distributor probably carries thousands of HTML5 titlesin their catalog. Steam, DLsite,, you name it. It's not 2012 anymore. The thing is, HTML5 games aren't really comparable to flash games. The majority of flash games have always been amateur webshits whereas more professional standalone flash games were the exception. HTML5 game frameworks/engines are better suited for more serious game projects, not unlike other similar frameworks in other languages. In short, HTML5 does not compete with flash. It's on a different category. Nothing will replace the lovely piece of shit that flash is. ;_;

Also interesting that the DOMContentLoaded event fires much later in swf, despite there being no actual DOM - only a minimal placeholder to display the embedded swf object.
>> [_] Anon 3376880 >># firefox sandboxes the shit out of flash these days, i'd be very surprised if it was faster
>> [_] Anon 3376884 >># Yeah, it was a given that the JS version would be faster. I was just wondering how much faster. And all of this isn't even taking into account the fact that the single JS page can play all of aersia's playlists (vip, mellow, source, exiled, wap, cpp) simply by parsing another xml roster. Simple functionality like this really makes you realize how retardedly primitive the swf is. But it's really weird that DOMContentLoaded is slower on the swf. The entire browser-supplied DOM is literally one tag deep with zero CSS. How in the fuck is that loading slower than the full playlist as HTML?

You're also missing these points: 1. SWF is an archived animation, so it's all transferred easily between peers in a single file and requires no effort to host. VS Canvas (the direct competitor to flash) is an html file with a separate folder containing any assets you used (songs, images, etc.) which is more tedious to share and host. 2. SWFs are sandboxed but still has a couple security risks. VS JS is not sandboxed and is now the most commonly used method to abuse users and with security risks up the ass.

The visual style adobe/macromedia established with their vector animation stuff is distinct, but flash is nothing without interactivity. >Except later rebuked with your own statement of Don't take things out of context if you want to be taken seriously, tripfag. Vector animations have jack shit to do with video format capabilities. That said, SVG also offers some interesting possibilities for vector animations but browser support is still sketchy. I reckon any "flash replacement" would be a js library for canvas stuff - and gui editor to get the flash babbies back on the train. Counter-points: 1. It's possible to embed any kind of file into a single HTML file, with either base64 data uris or js blobs. Trivvial to do so programmatically, adding such a feature into any "flash replacement" software would be minimal work. And while this is not directly related to the "muh container" argument, many SWFs also load external content, so nothing new there. 2. What? Running JS inside your browser is far safer than shitty swf plugins ever were. Literally the entire internet runs on the same technology, it's uncountable orders of magnitude more mature than a niche platform like flash was. If there was will, the flash community could already have established promising projects for html5 flash-like authoring tools. Big flash portals could have already done the groundwork for hosting relatively freeform html5 replacements. But there is no will. Most flash creators are incompetents using whatever babbymode tool they can wrap their head around, so they're now jumping ship into unity (fucking lol) and flash portals are just encouraging that, if not encouraging exporting their shit animations to straight to video and forgoing any interactivity.
>> [_] Anon 3321420 Also. The way I see this, the impending death of flash will divide the userbases into two very distinct groups. 1. The majority of flash creators: The kids and amateurs who just want to make funny animations, garbage-tier porn games or whatever using with whichever simple tool is at hand. They will move onto unity webgl or videos or whatever the big flash portals push for. They might carry the "spirit" of flash style with them. At least the ease of creation / accessibility and subsequent shovelware quality will follow this group. 2. The minority of professionals (be it web designer, indie game programmer, js code monkey or whatever) with a side interest on the quirky little thing that is swf. They will continue to share cool HTML5+JS snippets on sites like and shadertoy. The macromedia/adobe style is dead to them. Neither is a proper replacement for flash. I'm worried about what will become of /f/ and swfchan once mainstream browsers finally drop swf plugin support.

[_] Anon 3311935 Just updated Firefox to version 58.0.1 and now when I open a flash it just says "Run Adobe Flash" instead of the previous message that suggested that flash might be dangerous. This is a good thing! I didn't expect this from today's browsers that are hell-bent on tearing down flash for no reason other than because they have decided to do it. Could it be that they are listening to the pleads of people that love flash?? Unfortunately I can't remember exactly what the old message said, if you haven't upgraded Firefox yet please post the old message here. Marked for deletion (old).

>> [_] Anon 3311959 >># >personally I was most upset about "This site uses a plugin that may slow Firefox." That's why I'm happy it only says "Run Adobe Flash" now. I don't really have a problem with flash no longer auto-loading in browsers, as long as it is possible to activate it with a simple click or two. Removing any kind of scary, and frankly, bullshit message like it will "slow down your browser" is good. A video will also slow down your browser. As will many images. Or a HTML5 game. Or JavaScript. All of those will still auto-load just fine in Firefox without any scary messages. I'm still hopeful flash plugin will remain even after 2020. Not optimistic, just hoping for it.

The funny thing is that there isn't anything open source that does what flash (the player and creation software) does to the same quality. The supposed html5 replacement is also a security hazard, with cryptocoin miners, browser alert boxes and various malicious scripts to the point that many people use a browser extension to block javascript from running by default; similar to how most browsers blocked flash for their users in the past few years.

The javascript alert function forces the browser to switch to the tab that generated the box and won't let the user interact with the browser until the box is closed. An attack that I've seen, before installing noscript, is to open an alert box as soon as the previous one is closed which forces a user to close the window which that tab is open in. >you and your DUMBFUCK HEADCANON. I just used the definition of security risk that wikipedia quoted. Why have you not stated your definition by now? Please do. >they're only vulnerabilities that were discovered. there could be far more that aren't exposed to the public. The same goes for any application. There's malicious exploits in javascript web frameworks, not to mention cross site scripting. The W3C statement on javascript security says enough for me to not trust most sites: "We cannot stress this enough. JavaScript is a wonderful language and can help you to build highly responsive and beautifully interactive web sites and applications, but where it falls down terribly is security. In short, there is no security model in JavaScript and you should not protect, encrypt, secure or store anything vital or secret with it" ( tachment.cfm?FilePath=/iad/library/report s/assets/public/upload/JavaScript-Securit y-Risks.pdf&WpKes=aF6woL7fQp3dJiegGJ5E5te Tgrb3CdeJCMGnLB) >don't kid yourself, the list will only continue to grow while adobe themselves is literally not going to touch it anymore.

>> [_] Anon 3308534 >># reread the definition. now read your example of it. checkmate. it's not even up for argument at this point and doing so at this point just makes you a clown. also i can see you're just parroting general terms since you used the term cross site scripting without knowing the full meaning behind it. it's not the fault of javascript itself, it's the usage of malicious third party libraries that have access to the same domain as you since you're using them. there's a HUGE difference in security risks due between the programmer's incompetence and the language itself, ie flash. you're just a moronic layman that likes to hear himself argue. open your eyes, flash is shit and everyone acknowledges it except for retards like you.
