    hi

    what do you do in 2016 to keep calm while browsing with safari without flash when you can't see most of the video embedded in most of the webpages ?

    click to flash or click to plugin or not doing the tricks for me, at all. maybe I don't know how to configure it, but I've been trying...


    it's so annoying because on iOS everything is fine, but on macOS, safari without flash is still a pain in the ass...

    What sites specifically? It's rare that I ever come across sites that still need Flash to play videos.

    What sometimes works is to enable the Develop menu (Preferences > Advanced) and change your user agent to an iOS/iPad one. That will fool sites into thinking you're using iOS which only works with HTML5 content.

    try this forum for instance : https://www.muffwiggler.com

    and the Develop trick never worked for me once...

    I was hopping that sierra would fix this. but it didn't.

    Why not just use Chrome? It has flash built in to the browser. Yes I use Safari as my main browser, but for sites that require flash, I switch to Chrome (even though I do t like Chrome).

    I don't have Flash installed on any of my devices for years now. And as has been said before I rarely come across a website which needs it. It's time for the admins to move forward and adapt it.

    i think fox sport go and ESPN require flash to watch games on a macbook air or mac mini using el crapitain. i used to design and code website looooooong time ago until 2103, and I'm confused over what sites need flash and HTML5 and verser visergrip!
