Is Adobe flash player required for audio playback?
I've got these installed, but Firefox uses Flash Player:
- The QuickTime Plugin allows you to view a wide variety of multimedia content in Web pages. For more information, visit the QuickTime Web site.
- Shockwave Flash 11.9 r900
- Google Update
- iTunes Detector Plug-in
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.05
- VLC media player Web Plugin 2.0
Websites specify in their code which plugin to use and that is most of the time Flash. Other plugin are a lot less commonly used.
Some sites like Netflix use the Silverlight plugin.
There are also websites that can use the built-in HTML5 media player and work without a plugin.
