Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Adobe have just announced that they will stop supporting Flash in 2020:

 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40716304

Which is a great shame, because Flash is still the only lossless format for web use with screen capture video.

For still images we sensibly have 2 formats -- JPG for real world images, and PNG for computer line graphics. Not that you would know it, judging by the number of folks who use JPG for line graphics, even on technical sites where you would think they would know better.

But for video there is only the one HTML5 format, which is utterly useless for line graphics, with fuzzy images and file sizes 10 times larger than the same thing in Flash.

Folks keep telling me HTML5 video is the way forward, but I have spent hours trying every setting in the book to get it to look as crisp as Flash, without success, and still with massive file sizes.

For executable formats we have the TechSmith lossless codec which I used in the old Camtasia videos, and now we have the FBR format for the latest videos. But neither of those can be used on a web page. Fortunately FlashBackConnect provide their streaming server for our FBR videos, but the HTML5 web format on there isn't a patch on the FBR videos playing in the native player in Templot.

I dare say we shall survive. At times like this I like to sit down with a nice boiled egg.

Martin.

Hi Martin,

They say they will stop supporting Flash but no doubt it will still be in use for years afterwards, just like XP.
In the past I have had to use FBR/FlashbackConnect and I also agree that it was not a very good experience at all.
I daresay that someone with a decent product will step up and fill the gap in the next couple of years.

Just stumbled across this article which might be of interest if you haven't already. It just seems that they need to sort out which codec(s) they will be using.

Enjoy your boiled egg (and soldiers).
