Morning All

I have been working with Google and Adobe on another form, but I was ask to reach over in this community to ask this question. I want to know what the effect flash being turn off will have on Adobe Connect, we currently use it for meetings and training sessions across our company. We also use it to playback training sessions for people that need to watch an event on their own time. With Flash being automatically turn off in Google Chrome, will this cause issue with Adobe connect working overall? Or can Adobe connect run with out the Flash run time environment, and just work on a normal coded HTML5 site? I trying to figure this out for our company, because how we use Adobe web product so much, and need to know what changes we need to make when this change comes to Google browser. We know it will also be coming to IE and EDGE soon enough, but if we getting figure now we will not be hurting later. Below is the link to the other community form, please let me know if there is any other information you need.

Alec,

First off, Chrome isn't removing Flash, they are just planning (I say planning because their users may have an outcry when their browsing doesn't work as expected) to "de-emphasize" the Flash plugin for all but a select few sites. And even then, you can tell Chrome to use Flash on your commonly browsed sites. So, we'll see if it stick and if the other browsers follow suit.

Explained here:

- Google Chrome Blog: Flash and Chrome

- Google plans to start blocking Flash in Chrome this year | The Verge

As to Adobe Connect, Adobe has been working on creating a workflow and ultimately a viable non-Flash solution for Connect for some time. Seeing as there is no good alternative for low-latency real time communiction other than Flash, the day that we see a non-Flash version of Adobe Connect may be a whlie out, but workarounds are in place. Currently (using Adobe Connect 9.4 and newer) if you don't have Flash, you will be propted to install the Connect Add-in, rather than Flash. This was explained here, Adobe Connect and HTML5 «

So, no need to worry, as web standars change, Adobe is working to change Connect with them.
