I am sick and tired of the problems i had with Adobe flash on my Macs for more than a decade. I really don't understand why YOU Adobe, the frontrunner of graphics for Mac's can't make a Flash that works on a Mac. On all my Mac's, (and I had six running nr. 7 now) the Flash use so much power, that fans are running wild. Please get your act together, and create a Flash that works. I'm willing to pay for it, not too much, but if that is what it takes just do it 🙂

Flash Player is a language runtime.  Think of it like Java.  We process code that other people write, and render pixels to the screen.It's fully possible to write efficient content that targets Flash Player.  Similarly, it's fully possible to write inefficient content.  Practices like ad-stuffing, where content providers embed dozens of ads (both visible and invisible) on a given page further exacerbate the problem.

It sounds like the person above sees working content, but that content uses enough CPU that the fans on the computer need to run.

Your description states that you're not able to watch a video, which sounds like a distinct problem to me.

Also, there's not really sufficient detail that would allow me to provide you with useful advice.

The following guide describes how to post an actionable question:
