There is no plugin to replace Flash Player.   Adobe announced Flash Player's end-of-life in July 2017 giving content creators, programmers, developers, IT experts, etc over 3 years remove Flash Player dependencies from their products. All modern browsers provide the capabilities necessary to do this in JavaScript.  This is an investment and prioritization choice, not a technical limitation.     For reference: https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html...

For reference:

 

Major browser vendors are deprecating Flash Player support.  Details specific to each vendor:

  • Apple Safari - removed Flash Player support in Safari 14, released Sept 16, 2020
  • Google Chrome - removed Flash Player support in Chrome 88, released Jan 19, 2021
  • Firefox - removed Flash Player support in Firefox 85, released on Jan 26, 2021.
    • Firefox ESR 78 will support Flash Player for the time being, assuming the Flash Player NPAPI plugin is already installed as it’s no longer available for download.
  • Microsoft Edge - removed Flash Player support in Edge 88, released Jan 15, 2021
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer and legacy Edge

Short answer:  No. 

There is no replacement for Flash Player.

Why:  Because Flash Player is end of life and browsers don't want you to use it for security reasons.  Flash on the web is dead.
