Adobe Flash end of life

Need recommendations as to what we can do now that Adobe Flash has expired. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Peter Paloma

Hey @Peter_Paloma, be happy to share some resources with you. I think it would benefit you to read some of our Wowza blogs on HLS.

In 2020, Flash will finally die — which is why Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol has become the preferred way to deliver streaming video to users. HLS is an adaptive HTTP-based protocol used for transporting video and audio data from media servers to viewers’ screens. Regardless of whether you’re watching live video via an app on your phone or on-demand content on your TV, chances are that HLS streaming is involved.

There are several players on the market that support HLS. Might want to google HLS players or poke around our blogs, docs and forums posts where you’ll find plenty of advice on this. Best of luck to you.
