Why do I still need Adobe Flash in 2015?
Yet html5 can't do everything flash can and Jobs died before Flash.
Fun fact: Most apps are developed in Flash together with Illustrador, Photoshop, etc and just published as .ipa, .apk, app, exe and html5 files that everyone uses.
>Dood you don't need Flash anymoah, everything just werks in HTMemeleL FIVE nao :^)
To be fair, it's not a trivial problem. There is no decent way to feed RTMP directly into a non-Flash player. The closest we can get right now is obs > [rtmp] > nginx-rtmp > [hls] > html5 player, but that's really new stuff that is only starting to get touched now.
Yeah and most premier businesses still use DOS-era soft/hardware for commercial applications, doesn't really prove much
Producers and programmers realizing that they can get away with not supporting things like flash over a newer, more popular medium for consumer grade stuff can and will drop them to save a dollar
Because HTML5 is new and it's going to take a while before Flash dies out.
If you don't use it, delete it, but I'm sure eventually you're going to visit a website that will require Flash to work.
You can stream porn with youtube-dl and mpv, that's probably what he's referring to. I just discovered it and it has changed my life.
I am using mpv+youtube-dl. But I am using an addon called 'OpenWith' to call mpv from withing Firefox.
Which web browser are you using? And how did you add mpv to the context menu of the browser?
>I'm using OpenWith on Firefox too.
I was hoping for a way to add items to the context menu without using a browser add-on. I was reading through the FF documentation. And it appears that the only way to add items to a context menu to to create a custom add-on:
I actually use OpenWith to call a python/tkinter script. Then that script grabs some info using the "-F" option of youtube-dl. Then dumps the info to the simple gui. I jump through all of these hoops so I can select the video version I want to view (bitrate/resolution). As my computer can't handle HD vids.
You probably don't. It's all but irrelevant as a web technology. On the other hand it's still used a lot by animation studios, especially smaller ones. It's a relatively cheap platform , and quite simple and time efficient to develop on compared to other solutions. It'll be around due to that for a little while yet.
