VideoStudio 2020 and Flash Player

Post by Pepi »

Hi,
Does anybody have a deeper knowledge if the Flash Player is still required in some scenarios?

Out of the box solution have following configuration:

Code: Select all

[FLASHVIO]
LOCKVERSION=0x00200000
PRIVATEOCXPATH=C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\Flash.ocx
This sounds a bit odd.

I have now started to remove that from the configurations, but every time support ask re-installation, this is coming back :(
Yes, I asked this from them as well. :shock: :roll:

In theory, flash player is not required for VS2019 and VS2020 as .swf files were replaced with .mov files, we have asked and are still awaiting a reply from Corel, the situation for earlier versions of VS

I don't see any problem of keeping the current flash player installed and disabling it in the browsers.

This was the answer I got, finally:
Corel Support wrote:Regarding your concern, No Videostudio Does not require the Flash player to be installed in your computer.
It is still strange that it is still defined on the configuration files, if that is not required. Perhaps VS2021 fix this as well :lol:

Have you update flash player ?
"The new update also brings an actual date to Flash's actual demise in the form of January 12, 2021 — the date after which any type of Flash content won't run inside the Flash app.
Skipping this last Flash update won't remove this "time bomb," however.
Adobe told ZDNet that the killswitch code was added months before in previous releases and that this last Flash update only modifies the language used in the prompt that will ask users to uninstall the app."

so swf gone done the drain.

What do you mean by "update"? I'm trying to get it away from my workstation :)

I just figured out those configurations while trying to learn more about this. But now Corel replied to me, and told Flash Player is not required for VS2020.
