Weird Thing with Firefox

Post by resecnded x » Wed May 02, 2012 6:37 pm

After I was done with my 2-D Animation Course in community college, I ended up uninstalling the trial version of adobe flash, and reader, and the flash player for firefox and internet explorer, also shockwave player went with it

I went to a youtube video I had bookmarked, but yet, even though I get the Missing Plugin notification saying I need adobe flash player to view missing content, I can still watch youtube videos without it

Do I really need adobe flash player for firefox at all?

I'm doing a full reinstall of the adobe flash player(s)/shockwave player anyways, but I need some input here that WON'T take 3 weeks to reply to; please help me on this issue, and thank you

God.........i'm glad i'm done with finals, new york trip, woohoo!!! :D

It may have been that the video you were watching had an HTML5 version. You no longer need Flash for some parts of Youtube, and if you don't have Flash installed, I think it automatically will play the HTML5 version if available.

All the Youtube videos that haven't been converted to HTML 5 (there's a lot), all the streaming media on most other sites that isn't HTML 5 (a vast majority of it) any Flash-based games, animations, or websites that you try to visit. We're not living in a post-Flash world yet.
