I recently upgraded to ff beta and upgraded my adobe flash player and can no longer view flash in browser. Have tried every combination of installing/uninstalling. Everything is running on 64 bit - most up-to-date downloads. What am I missing?
So I installed and ran the 32-bit version of flash and still I get a blank. I have tried disabling graphics acceleration (which I've read may help). Shockwave flash v. 188.8.131.52 is enabled in my plugins. I have no interest in using IE so I'd like to get ff to work in ff. Any other ideas?
Protected mode in Flash only applies to Flash version 11.3.300.257 (and later, when released) which was released on 06/08/2012. The owner of this thread, rvanderm, indicated that "flash v. 184.108.40.206 is enabled in my plugins" earlier in this thread.
I don't even have Realplayer on my machine anymore! What I finally did was to download a previous version of Flash, (10.3), from the Adobe downloads page. (Sorry I don't have the link, I just Googled "Download an older version of flash")
Well, after I said FF with flash was working again I discovered it was not on some other sites. Then I noticed I was being told that I had a version of FF that was no longer supported and advised to download the most recent version, which I did, and now everything is working again, with shockwave enabled (when it was disabled I was being told on some sites that I did not have flash installed). Anyway, my problem now seems resolved with the most recent versions of FF (12-1.0) and the latest version of flash/shockwave (13.3.300.265) installed. Hope that helps someone else because I sure spent a lot of time on this.
SO ... now you want to re-install a version of Adobe Flash just for your HP Solution Center to use. Instead of re-installing the Solution Center software (like JIM412 did) I just pulled in a old version of Flashplayer itself. This has to be new enough for the HP software to accept it, but old enough that it isn't looking for Internet Explorer 11 during the install nor crippled by the Jan 2021 Flash drop dead date. My magic Goldilocks version turned out to be Flashplayer 11.3.300.257. I am running an HP C8180 printer driver version 14.0 originally released back in 2012.
The original message in this overall thread, as posted by Tig77 (here: -Setup-Software-Drivers/HP-Digital-Imaging-Monitor-doesn-t-work... ) describes getting and installing an old version of Flashplayer from an Internet Archive page to cure things under Windows 7. That's where I went too.
Due to the amount of moving parts, playing games or using software that has Flash will drain your device battery significantly, which is a hassle since it's not good to constantly have your devices plugged into a charger will in use. If you have an iPhone, you won't be able to use anything that has Flash in it as none of the devices support it due to the repeated security issues and because it isn't really open sourced. Use of the software is more trouble than it is worth, and because of this, Adobe recently announced that it will end updates and distribution of the flash player at the end of 2020. The main reasons for the death of the software are that competitors are now lightyears ahead of Flash in terms of functionality and what is offered, and that plugins, in general, are dying out. HTML5 is becoming more and more widely used as it needs less processing power and doesn't require any plugins. Adobe went on to say that other big tech companies with products that once worked in conjunction with Flash, have come together and agreed to phase out the software altogether unless it is essential to the core of the technology.
HTML5 is the best alternative to Adobe Flash Player. The latest versions of Chrome, Opera, Safari, and Firefox all support HTML5, and most developers are moving in that direction. YouTube is another big name that has incorporated HTML5 into its video player, and most mobile iOS and Android mobile devices have software that works well with it. It already comes with most things that it needs to be supported by a browser, but Flash Player needs to have a plugin installed. HTML5 is open sourced and anybody can continue to improve it, though it is already very secure and lightweight. Adobe itself has encouraged the use of this software as the best alternative.
Adobe Flash Player is dead in the water. It is outdated, not secure, and always seems to be at risk of being hacked. Software and games that use the flash player will soon have other programs that will take its place, if it hasn't happened already.
No, we do not recommend downloading Adobe Flash Player. Since Adobe announced that it will no longer be updating the flash player, there is no reason to continue to install older versions as there are safer, more secure, and better-performing options. Times have changed and software has far surpassed what Flash is capable of.
I am going to throw together a guide to uninstalling the latest version of flash player as there have been numerous complaints of 220.127.116.117 ActiveX Variant not working, and rolling back to 18.104.22.168 working successfully. I have seen people getting the 1722 error according to this thread
A) There are 3 type of flash player plugins, and they all have to be installed separately, so when I get to the part about running the uninstaller remember that you will have to re-install per browser plugin type It is important to note that you can have different versions here as well because not all browsers and applications use the same plugin remember this.
C) You are going to have to grab the Archived ActiveX variant from the Adobe Archive here. This is a ZIP file, so you will have to open it and I suggest using the exe as that is what one person said works that file is called: flashplayer20_0d0_228_winax.exe That is in the folder called 20_0_d0_228 inside the zip archive. NOTE: DO NOT USE THE DEBUG FOLDER
3) There have been some known old registry entries from older flash player versions that can cause conflict with newer installations on machines that have not been imaged in years or flash has not been properly uninstalled and there are residual files, etc left over, that will not be covered here as that is an advanced topic
Its got so many nails in its coffin already, the issue is that there is so much content that uses flash for media playback and interaction that HTML5 is not fully up to the task in some of those areas. Video playback can be accomplished by HTML5 its the other stuff that is a little more difficult to reproduce in HTML5. I use a 64 bit version of Mozilla Firefox for over 90% of my browsing and Google Chrome as a secondary. I rarely use IE or EDGE if that helps you out.
I am currently using Adobe flash player v18 (22.214.171.124). We have an application which runs with Adobe ActiveX player to render the charts. With the latest version of flash player, we are facing an issue. As a workaround, we need to revert to the older version of flash player 18 (version 126.96.36.199).
I was able to successfully uninstall the flash player with the help of Flash Player uninstaller but, when I try to install the older version it just says "Your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser includes the latest version of Adobe Flash Player built-in. Windows Update will inform you when new versions of the Flash Player are available".
I want to install the oldest versions of Adobe Flash Player because XSplit Broadcaster Program's video playlist swf plugin doesn't work with the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. I contacted with developers of XSplit, they told me it's because of the latest version Adobe Flash Player the plugin doesn't work. And also told me "the legacy playlist is not compatible on windows 10 since the old playlist uses a flash plugin. Windows 10 does not support the old adobe flash player." I have the oldest version of XSplit Broadcaster. Because the latest version of XSplit has been using too much CPU and have some issues like you can't crop the images, videos, screen capture and game source's screens like the oldest version. That's why I don't want to use the latest version of XSplit. Also they released a new video playlist plugin which doesn't use Adobe Flash Player I mean not "swf". Also they kept video playlist swf plugin and they renamed it as video playlist legacy. But the latest version of the swf plugin doesn't work too with the latest Adobe Flash Player. that's why I want to use the old flash player versions. The XSplit Broadcaster version which I've been using is 1.3.1403.1202. It uses and supports Adobe Flash Player Active X version 10.3 and above. Before, after I removed and cleared the contents on everywhere of the built-in latest Flash Player from my OS Windows 10 Education 64 Bit, I installed Adobe Flash Player 10.3 Active X version and it successfully installed. Then the XSplit video playlist swf plugin worked too. But a short after when I rebooted the computer, my internet cutted and said "Diagnostic policy is not running" and occured exclamation mark over my network/internet icon which has been on the right side of taskbar. Also said Windows Firewall gave an error and said it couldn't open/run. When I rebooted the computer at the beginning (after the opening screen) Windows 10 Operating System gave a blue screen error and this was writing at the below: "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (tcpip.sys)" . I had to use system restore and restored my system back to run normally. Why Windows 10's been making problem like that ? Probably because of incompatible-insecure thing it's taking its own precaution. Or I deleted wrongly a registry key related Flash Player, that's why. But I tried again and this problem occured again. That's why I want to install above 10.3 Adobe Flash Player versions. But as from 11.0 version of Adobe Flash Player, they all have been saying same thing: 2b1af7f3a8
