Yeah, the content provider has had three years advanced notice that this change is coming, and it's not just Adobe dropping Flash.  Safari, Firefox and Chrome have all dropped support for browser plug-ins across the board in tandem with Flash EOL, and IE and Edge aren't too far behind.  When Vine went away, people made all these great supercuts and moved the content to youtube and Tumblr.  That might be a cool project if someone hasn't done it already.  I bet archive.org has a lot of that cont...

When Vine went away, people made all these great supercuts and moved the content to youtube and Tumblr.  That might be a cool project if someone hasn't done it already.  I bet archive.org has a lot of that content stored in the wayback machine.  You'd need to come up with a way to play Flash content (there are tons of other threads that decribe Enterprise Enablement and other alternatives), but it might be a satisfying project to help keep the notsalgia alive.

 

At this point, my recommendation would be to find an alternative to use moving forward.
