Question mainly for Comcast reps, but if someone else knows I'd love to hear about it:
Adobe Flash is going to be end of life in a little over a year. It's also insecure, unreliable, and inexplicably bundled with McAfee shovelware. Why does the web portal live camera feed require this and when will the devs sensibly migrate to HTML5? It's been the standard for the last 4 years, isn't this offering newer than that?
+1, Flash is dead (Google CHrome deprecreated it) Microsoft Edge has it turned off (or at least the autorun portion) as of 1703 by default.
I refuse to load Flash into my Safari configuration. Way to vulnerable and a hog. Comcast, time to move to current standards, it cannot be that hard, you have video working without Flash on mobile devices.
Every time I log on I still get a notification that I have to have Flash. This happens when using any browser (Explorer, Firefox, Edge , or Chrome). Whatever changes are being made, they haven't been pushed out as of this. date.
Windows 10 with Google Chrome Version 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit). Everytime I try to view a saved video I get the following (note flash is disabled in my browser settings):
Ah - got it, thanks for the additional detail!
I was only researching the ability to play Live video on the portal, not Saved video. I am getting the Flash requirement error when trying to play a Saved video as well.
I know eventually the Flash requirement will go away for all use cases - I'll see if I can get an update on when saved videos will no longer require Flash as well.
In the meantime, an easy workaround may be to click to download the saved video to your browser. You can do this by clicking the Down Arrow icon in the upper-right corner of the thumbnail when mousing over the video you wish to play. This should download to Chrome in MP4 format, and play in whatever your default is for that file type on your PC when you open it up. A couple of extra clicks, but worked like a charm for me.
I hope that helps!
