Hello EO team;

I face a probleme using the lastest version and flash;
Using chrome 77 build => every time you visit a webpage using flash, there is a message saying "flash is out of date" (I tested with lastest official flash player and beta build).

You can right click and chose "use flash player" but it's not the best.


Is there any way to skip this confirmation ?

Regards
Eurice

Update :

I debugged the context menu show by EO when you try to use flash :
The CommandId to "use flash player" is 221; which is not in the enum CommandIds.
I tryed to bypass this screen by using EOWebView.ExecCommand(221); but it didn't worked (the onCommand event didn't got triggered aswell)

Hi,

We can not reproduce "flash out of date" message here. However you must right click to run Flash. There is no way to bypass this in the current build.

You should start to migrate away from Flash. Chromium has been gradually moving away from Flash for quite a while and it will reach the end very soon. The current time line is:

1. From v62, the option that allows all Flash content to run by default is removed;
2. From V76, Flash will be disabled by default (this is why you need to enable it every time now);
3. Later this year Flash support will be completely removed;

So most likely our 2021 release will no longer have Flash support at all.

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for the reply; well I personnaly would love to get away from flash asap .... :(

I though that by passing the commandId I could hack it; but no luck.
