Subject description: 2020 is the end of life for Flash
 

https://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2017/07/adobe-flash-update.html

According to Adobe News, as open standards like HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly have matured over the past several years, most now provide many of the capabilities and functionalities that plugins pioneered and have become a viable alternative for content on the web.

So Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

mozilla-plugin-gnash is a good alternative to flash. Dog users can make a module out of it, and use it when needed by activating it (sfs load).

It appears that youtube is in the process of trying to switch over to HTML5 and has made a complete botch of it. When they try to send you a HTML5 video page, the page that arrives has errors and incorrect formatting of the video.

On seamonkey-2.46, the HTML5 won't play even though seamonkey supports HTML5.
