Flashplayer - yes/no/maybe so?

Hi Manjaro team -
Wife and I want to look at a college admissions webinar this evening and per the email from the admission team they strongly suggest Adobe Flash. I have flashplugin and pepper-flash installed but when I go to “test” site (mentioned in colleges email) I land at the adobe download site, which leads me to think flash is not loading correctly. I know there are issues with adobe flash, and I’m not sure it’s even supported :


your thoughts welcome.

Flashplayer: No

Adobe Flash support as been terminated on 31 December 2020 and no longer work, it has been announced 4 or 5 years ago, they had time to move on

You can’t miss the banner right at the top of the page:

Important Reminder: Flash Player’s end of life is December 31st, 2020. Please see the Flash Player EOL Information page for more details.

thx Lolix and Yochanon -
Saw the notice at the top of the test page. Didn’t know if that was firm date…sometimes thing slip. Also the university has a pretty good IT team so it’s surprising they’d be leaning on software with such a mixed history.
