With Adobe’s decision to put an end to Flash Player in 2020, many have started to question the future of video contents. According to Blorge, Adobe Flash Player has been released for the first time in 1996 and since then it has been necessary to execute Internet applications with media content, stream videos and audio and more.

Platforms compatible with Flash Player

Most of us have Flash Player installed in all-out internet browsers and that is because the software is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Chrome OS, Solaris, Pocket PC, Android, BlackBerry Tablet OS and more.

Plug-in versions of Adobe Flash Player

Flash Player is free and it provides plug-in versions for the most important web browsers: Chrome and Windows 8 or Later included.

Vulnerability issues

There are many who cannot wait for Flash Player to be put down, including world-famous and Apple co-owner Steve Jobs. He has eliminated Flash Player from its iOS devices complaining it is too buggy and vulnerable.

To avoid security issues, try to always use the latest version of Flash Player. Sometimes your browser will suggest your update your Flash Player.

Those who want to be cautious, but are not very good at remembering things can change the update settings. There are three options which appear and one of them is “Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)”. This update will install urgent updates without notifying. Scheduled updates will be notified and it will put your mind at rest.

The end of Flash Player is the end of an era and there are many of us who are feeling nostalgic already. The internet has matured enough and many believe it is time for developers to start using HTML5 technology. Since then, there are still updates to be installed in our internet browsers.
