Hi everyone,

I've read about the serious security problems with Flash Player. I've uninstalled it from my pc, which alternative plugin may I use to watch videos and use streaming services (web radios, tv channels,....)

The security issue was with the previous Flash Player versions from Adobe as Adobe released new versions early Tuesday for Windows and Mac OSX but not Linux yet. https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html

Yeah they are.

How so? just because they may get mentioned by some contributors here does not mean they are officially supported options.

These alternatives are for some OS's and only work with some sites whether fully or partially. So they are not something you can just replace Flash Player plugin with.
