Flash requirement for camera live feed on web portal

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.
