What's going to happen when flash isn't supported anymore? Marked for deletion (old). >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)04:51:36 No.3435314 >>3435305 >What's going to happen when flash isn't supported anymore? It’s just not getting anymore updates. This board will probably remain until Flash leaves blatant vulnerabilities, I imagine. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)11:06:22 No.3435343 yeah it will surely still exist until its getting hacked easily >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)13:24:45 No.3435355 >>3435314 if Adobe doesn't release special fixes for super critical stuff after 2020 even if they know flash is still in use they are a even worse company than i thought. microsoft still releases special fixes for super critical stuff in windows xp after its end of life, because they know it is still in use and they aren't a trash company. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)13:32:05 No.3435357 >>3435305 You can still download media players that can play swf files, just you have to donload .swf files manually. It's just the flash plugin that will go away. You can still create .swf files aswell. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)13:40:56 No.3435358 >>3435357 nope. those still use flash. You'll have to use swf to exe converters. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)14:39:23 No.3435360 Thanks, saved the flash. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)15:04:18 No.3435363 I downloaded the flash plugin to revisit this board and Firefox keeps shitting itself. The screen flickers and the flash files constantly freeze. It's quite annoying. Does this happen on all modern browsers or is it just Firefox being awful? >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)15:06:27 No.3435364 >>3435363 You can just download an swf file player and play them manually. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)17:34:16 No.3435378 >>3435358 actually >>3435357 is wrong in saying that the flash plugin is going away. only support for the API allowing access to the flash plugin are going away from mainstream browsers. you can still put the plugin onto your computers and have programs use it to display swf files. the Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) is used to display flash in firefox today. it's the last plugin allowed to use NPAPI in firefox. it is scheduled to be dropped at the very end of 2020. google made their own interface called Pepper Plugin API (PPAPI), it was based on NPAPI. it is being dropped June 2021. however i think Chrome has its own built-in flash component, which they will drop at the end of 2020. there are other "pepper flash" browsers like Opera. there's also an ActiveX version of the flash plugin, which is used by Internet Explorer and other programs like for example Media Player Classic. i think Adobe's flash player exe has the "flash plugin" baked into itself so no need to install the ActiveX plugin to play it with that standalone player. since microsoft edge is based on chromium these days i assume they are also a "pepper flash" browser (PPAPI). although PPAPI seems to last until mid 2021 they will remove flash support in January, they will even make old versions of the browser block flash with an "out of date" reason. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)17:44:09 No.3435379 >>3435363 firefox has arbitrarily limited flash playback more and more over the last few years. i also have the same problems. they are hard at work to change people's opinions about flash, to make it seem like it is working like crap while in reality all problems are just due to firefox choking the swf plugin. "for your protection", of course. the demise of flash really bums me out. adobe basically had the whole world using their technology and they failed to do anything with it. at the very least they could have released Flash Pro for free for non-commercial purposes and made swf take advantage of graphics cards. having to pirate Flash Pro limited the number of people fucking around with it at a young age and not being able to render with the graphics card made it stagnate and even start to lag as people used larger resolution monitors (people would quadruple the pixels but not quadruple the CPU power) >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)20:15:33 No.3435388 >>3435363 no joke, I've always used internet explorer for swf files and it's been fine >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)21:09:05 No.3435390 Nothing. Unless people find ways to exploit flash to install ransomware/miners/other shit on people's machines or brick them then the community is just going to make custom plugins/extensions to have it play on browsers still, like every other time browsers or companies did stupid shit and users had to fix it. Even if that did happen and it was too risky to play on browser people would just download flashes and play them manually while the community tries to keep only clean files in places like swfchan, much like with torrents. There will be no great flash death, if it ever dies it'll be because of the community leaving it behind to a slow death. >> [_] Anonymous 07/31/20(Fri)23:18:37 No.3435402 >>3435390 the 'community' can't make custom plugins/extensions to play swf files for the mainstream browsers and if you change to a non-mainstream browser you might as well just use adobe's old flash plugin even if it was possible to make a swf player with WebExtension (it's not) i doubt there's a 'community' large enough to be willing to put in the thousands of manhours required to get it to work even half as well as adobe's flash plugin. forget simply making sure you display tweens and layers correctly, remember you need to support ActionScript 1, 2 and 3 as well. >> [_] Anonymous 08/01/20(Sat)03:06:01 No.3435415 I guess we'll just keep hanging around until we can't, right? >> [_] Anonymous 08/01/20(Sat)07:57:46 No.3435437 >>3435415 and to infinity beyond >> [_] Anonymous 08/01/20(Sat)08:16:47 No.3435439 >>3435305 >>3435314 I think adobe has put a kill switch into the flash plugin as well you would have to download an old version which does not have the kill switch. Calls to arms to all those thinking of suiciding, we only need one of you. Make use of your worthless self, kidnap the family of the adobe CEO, threaten to mail them back in pieces unless flash source code is released. >> [_] Anonymous 08/01/20(Sat)09:42:49 No.3435442 >>3435388 Based.
