Adobe Flash Player

10 replies 353 views Edited Nov 20, 2013

Will PS4 support Adobe Flash Player on the Web Browser.  It is also quite disappointing that I cannot access YouTube on my PS4?  Are either of these features be added?  I hope sooner than later.  Thanks!

Only time will tell. Nothing has been said about it but can only hope so in the future. Flash is up to adobe though who can be pretty strict on their licensing sometimes hence the lack of mobile support.

Flash is dead..... Adobe abandoned it years ago.... HTML5 is where its at.

While Flash is still being somewhat supported by Adobe through AIR plugins (no, not those scented things for your home), I have yet to run across a website that uses anything but HTML5 these days.

Mobile Flash is dead and is what Adobe isn't supporting anymore. Regular Flash however, I literally just did an update 5 minutes ago. Desktop Flash is still around and kicking... but certainly starting to die off.

Probably not, considering flash is a dying breed.

You updated your flash? Why?

I haven't updated mine in like 6months and thats only because every 6months I reformat my laptop for a fresh Windows install.

Honestly - I have no idea. I think it has something to do with the fact I have Adobe CC installed. I just opened up something and suddenly my browser was asking me to update my player so I did. Creature of habit I suppose. Smiley Tongue
