- The Flash player that helps play multimedia content on web browsers has stopped working on most browsers. All Flash content will be blocked from 12 January. The industry has moved on to a new standard – HTML5.With lakhs of Flash-based games unplayable on user desktops, Indian ingenuity can be counted on to offer a fix.
Flash, the software tool used to display graphics and animation content on websites for a quarter century, has come to the end of its life.
On 31 December, parent company Adobe ended all support and encouraged users to uninstall it from their desktops announcing: “Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021 … and strongly recommends that all users immediately uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems.”
