Web browsers are deprecating Flash. What next?

​Going Flash-Free with Video: Transitioning Successfully January 24th 2017 - 12:00 PM

As web browsers move rapidly to sunset their support for Flash, companies that rely on Flash for video playback are being forced to make changes. Apple has led the charge in driving the need for this change by disabling Flash by default in Safari 10, and Chrome and Firefox are quickly following suit. Some media companies migrated to HTML5 video players in early 2016 in anticipation of these industry-wide changes, but others have remained in a ‘wait-and-see’ mode to see if Flash really is going away. Companies that haven’t moved to an HTML5 video player are now stuck between a rock and a hard-place. For them, it’s either risk the impact of Flash being disabled and react as needed, or remove this risk at the expense of making this migration an immediate priority.
