@Pathduck Hello and thanks for your reply,hope you are well.
I use 32bit puppy linux and as far as i can ascertain version 11 of the standalone projector was the last version produced for 32bit linux.I have looked high and low for a more not so recent version to use and it has been to no avail.
I have looked at the bluemaxima project and i commend them for the enormous effort but it is too much of a pain in the backside to get it to run on linux which from what i can understand is highly experimental on linux plus it would require running WINE emulation etc..too much hassle and too big a download for my liking.
@Gwen-Dragon That's what I've been doing. But it doesn't always work, in my experience. Some Flash programs have to be loaded in a browser, not in an external Flash Player. Some even have to be loaded from the Internet (i.e. they don't work if you download them and run them from your computer).
@Priest72 said in Flash per site:
@BoneTone Well your entitled to your opinion of course but i do not share it.
Until the certain flash sites i use shut the door permanently then i shall carry on using flash. I don't think adobe quite realises how much flash content is still out there and that includes commercial as well as public sectors.
It's not my opinion, it's just the state of things. I'm certain Adobe is well aware of how few users will be truly affected by this. I recall about 2 years ago there were only ~17% of users who even saw a piece of Flash, let alone wanted or needed to use it. It's even fewer now.
I was going to bring up the Flashpoint site archiving the legacy Flash around the web that @LonM linked, but I couldn't recall its name. That'll be a good resource for anyone whose favorite games go missing. Articles over the past couple years have been suggesting users download the Flash files so they have them for safe keeping and to be able to run them locally. As well as usual a legacy browser they use solely for the purpose of using Flash.
I'd also like to reiterate my primary point which seems to have been overlooked. Adobe & the browsers aren't doing this to force users to stop using Flash, but to drive developers to use better technologies. Users don't really care -- they just want to access their desired content. Precisely how that content is created & delivered is on the minds of very few users. Come 2021, content delivered through Flash will begin another sharp decline, to become almost extinct. The gaming industry, however, is not going extinct, and legacy games with enough popularity will be ported to new, safer technology. This is a good thing.
Aso ok, dachte dass der Ordner schon da wäre.
Ich schau da lieber gerne erstmal rein, damit ich nix vorhandenes überschreibe.
Bin mit der Registry immer bisschen vorsichtig :smiling_face_with_open_mouth_cold_sweat:
Habs jetzt händisch rein und scheint zu klappen, danke dir nochmals 🙂👍
@cliffyk said in US NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Admin) & Flash:
I have allowed flash on their site, and Vivaldi asks me to right-click and allow flash to run, but nada--the animations will not run.
I realise this is much more of a NOAA problem than a Vivaldi issue and that NOAA "will have to do something"¹ by year's end; however I was curious as to whether anyone had found a way around this.
Have I missed something, is there a flash or flash alternative extension I have failed to load?
Linux Mint 19.3, MATE desktop;
Thanks to @Pathduck
Anyway I found your neighbours and they still use it:
On my Linux Mint 18.3 Flash "just works" for me - I don't even get a warning/ask popup.
I had removed Adobe Flash and installed the PepperFlash plugin a while ago (I had problems with it, can't remember exactly what now).
Edit: @Gwen-Dragon did have a script for Flash, but I'm unsure if it is still valid.
Hopefully, she will have the link.
Flash Plugin is Enabled at Tools/Webpages - Plugins
And under site settings (clicking the lock icon in url field) Flash is set to ALLOW
It's important to understand the difference between the Flash Player browser plugin and the standalone Projector which allows you to run SWF files from your local machine.
It's not easy to find the Projector download, as it's hidden under the "Debug Downloads":
Select "Download the Flash Player projector"
Digging out SWF files from web sites is not necessarily an easy task unless you know HTML, but most of the work has already been done by Flashpoint/Archive and other sites anyway.
As for Shockwave/Director content, these are much harder to play back locally, as they can't be played directly. Not sure if the Archive is able to emulate these yet, but I think Flashpoint have many of them working.
@Gwen-Dragon said in Flash player won't start on my 2.9 version:
@gimpo Perhaps you should remove the adobe-flashplugin. One is enough.
sudo apt purge adobe-flashplugin
After purging and restarting Vivaldi the flashplayer animations works!
Thanks a lot.
Thanks for the tip Mr. Dragon - I shall bear that in mind. As I already said two posts ago though, this problem is resolved. It was indeed because of the adobe-flashplugin package being installed; and replacing with pepperflashplugin-nonfree has restored the functionality.
@Gwen-Dragon said in Enabling Flash per page / site:
Open chrome://settings/content/flash and add your whitelisted URLs/domains.
That hasn't worked for a long time now. After chromium 69 it forgot the setting on browser restart, then after they added the global toggle, there is no "Add" button.
@Peregrino69 Workaround is here: https://forum.vivaldi.net/post/232265
Not elegant or easy for most users, but works.
I agree, the current solution is not ideal.
What I think happened was, a lot of people (me included) were complaining that Vivaldi didn't remember the Site Settings for Flash. My guess is that this was actually done on purpose by Chromium devs to make it harder to playback flash.
Next year Flash will be out of support and probably the Allow Flash setting per site will be removed in Chromium sooner or later. So Vivaldi devs decided to make a global flag to enable/disable flash instead of a per-site setting, it was easier.
What I've done, is to create a policy object in the registry for Vivaldi:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Than you can add the sites you want Flash to always run on in this list by creating a new string value for this key.
Easy, right? 😉
@bluebellaza это не гуглу мешает. технология Flash признана сообществом(интернетом вцелом) небезопасной, поэтому разработка остановлена компанией adobe(собственно она и есть разработчик). гугл вместе с проектом хромимум тоже такого же мнения о ней, потому и присоеденились к политике выпиливания леша отовсюду, включая браузер. до 20 года вроде и все.
Те игры которые хотят сохраниться и развиваться дальше - давно на html5 перешли.
флеш давно уже похоронили.
I cannot offer you the exact example of Flash audio not working because it was in a webinar with a special entry code. Can't give you that. Privacy reasons.
In the past 9 months, I have entered multiple bug reports AND followed up with more examples. Mainly on the print-spooling bug which continues. I have no more patience. None. Zippo.
That said, the Vivaldi concept is GREAT! Heck -- IF you could ever fix the print spooling error, I'd do back to Vivaldi. Screw the Flash bug. I could use Chrome if I ever needed Flash audio.
So....I check in now and then in the hopes that one day, in my lifetime, while the world still exists, that the print spooling bug will be fixed.
Ja, über Deinen ersten Link und Beschreibung:
Winziges Fehlerchen, zumindest bzgl. win10:
Erzeuge im rechten Fenster die Zeichenkette mit dem Namen
Zeichenfolge statt -kette 😉
Hätte, hätte, F...kette...
