Back when FLASH was a hot item and Shockwave Player was ubiquitous and downloaded automatically, I mastered and tutored ActionScript 3 and had numerous FLASH demo sites, which still exist (e.g., http://peterbloch.tripod.com, http://chanitr.tripod.com, http://www.ppbloch.com/flash/index.htm).

Until recently, I could initiate the Shockwave Player by just clicking on the screen notice that "Adobe Flash Player is Blocked" -- now nothing.

Have you found any simple was to refurbish your old FLASH items for viewing on the Web?

Is adobe flash installed and up to date on your browser? You can check here: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

Hi there auntnini,


if the flash items aren't interactive then convert them to videos, if
not then you could try reconstructing them with canvas perhaps.

Hi there auntnini,


I forgot to ask; are you aware that Adobe support for Flash ends in 2020?


Adobe will finally kill Flash in 2020 (https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/25/16026236/adobe-flash-end-of-support-2020)
