The Adobe flash version we have is June 2020 release 18.104.22.1687. According to the Admin guide: https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_admin_guide/pdf/l...
Whitelisting of URL can be enabled by setting the following in the mms.cfg file:
Flash content still runs even when not in the allow list. Is the above the correct settings to use, or is there anything else needed? Thanks.
Thanks @Mark0D4D. I will take a look at that for Chrome.
My query is for IE. Someone noted that those settings may not be in operation yet (the admin guide is ahead of the actual change). Can the Adobe team confirm and if so when will it be available (one problem is that Win 10 IE doesn't get the Adobe Flash update unless there is a security fix).
The allowList feature is in current versions of the player and works. I don't remember exactly what version it landed in off the top of my head, but it would be in the relevant release notes.
The latest version of the admin guide is very clear about how to use the feature, and provides copy-paste examples. Just read the enterprise enablement section carefully and it should make sense. I did a pretty heavy revision of the entire admin guide a few weeks ago, and it's probably the most comprehensive explanation of any feature we've done there.
If it's not working for you, I'd start by making sure that mms.cfg is in the right location and actually being read. Keep in mind that 32-bit and 64-bit processes run from different locations (windows/syswow64 or windows/system32 for 32 and 64-bit respectively). Also, make sure you saved the file as ANSI or UTF-8. If you saved it in a weird encoding, we'll ignore it.
We do have mms.cfg working already for other options in there. I didn't see the AllowList feature in the release note here https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/flash-player/release-note/fp_32_air_32_release_notes.html#new_features
Is there some other place I should look?
We am having a similar issue. We have performed the below steps and IE11 is not displaying flash content after modifying the server date to post-EOL. By contrast, Edge is working as expected both pre EOL and post EOL. Please see details below.
Wondering if you can assist?
Thank you for your time!
Confirmation steps performed:
1.) Confirmed versions of flash support usage of the mms.cfg changes
2.) Confirmed mms.cfg changes match examples
Hi I use a software (CasparCG) that uses the ActiveX standalone (whitout a browser around it) and I can confirm, that I have made the same steps as @Britt5C6D has using IE. I used SysInternals ProcessMonitor to make sure, that the files is read by the process. So what can that be?
From another StackOverflow I found out, that Flash Player must be version 22.214.171.1245 that these settings will be loaded. But I am stuck to figure out how the AllowListUrlPattern must be for a local folder. That seems not to work.
file:* will work.
It should be on page 28, under Enterprise Enablement. Also, make sure you're on 126.96.36.1995 or higher.
Hello everyone I made a video here reproducing the problem and showing the changes to mms.cfg, most likely you palced the file in the wrong location (note chrome has a special location which i verified on Windows 10 when I tested that envrionment as documented i nthe admin guide): https://youtu.be/ztAOn666Cn8
Yeah, Didi and I have been talking over email today.
I filed the following bug over on the CasparCG Server github explaining the fundamental problem. It includes details on how to configure a working troubleshooting environment (It's been a while and I forgot that mm.cfg lives somewhere else):
