LVL 124
old news.... reported earlier in the week!


easy workaround, just replace with an older version! BUT bewarned older versions have security issues and flaws, and you may not want to use that browser in the wild on the internet!

Adobe Workaround is a laugh!

Hi! First of all, im new at as3. And I want to loop my 5 seconds video with cue points,
Its really simple, but there are some weird things happend.

Cue point 1 : at 0 second
Cue point 2 : at 5 seconds

So if the video reached the cue point 2, i want it to seek the cue point 1, and keep doing this over and over again

My codes work, there are no any outputs or errors. But when my video hit the cue point 2 and went back to cue point 1, the speed of the video increased from the beginning till the end while i didnt even do anything with speed stuff, And it ended up with a freezed frame at the end of the video (or you can say the loop only worked once)

I dont know if this is a bug or what, it really drives me insane. I tried to loop my video with timer too, but im lack of things about as3.

By the way this is my codes;


var startLoop:object = videoTest.findCuePoint("Cue Point 1");

videoTest.addEventListener("MetadataEvent.CUE_POINT, videoLoop); //videoTest is a name of my video.

function videoLoop(event:MetadataEvent):void
      If (event.info.name == "Cue Point 2")

I really need help to loop this video smoothly, please.

Thank you.
Dear Wizards, I got this error when browsing vCenter; Adobe Flash player was installed with latest version but did not help.

Could you please assist? Many thanks in advance.
Ok further to an earlier post, I don't have the option to move out of IE & Adobe products (namely
Adobe Flash player, Acrobat/Reader,  Shockwave).

So I'll need specific hardenings & settings to make them more secure: attached is a draft I've got
but I'll need more such specific settings for Adobe Flash player, Java applets & Java Runtime
(I got a fair bit of Javascripts) & MS Office hardenings (& management of macros).

Much appreciated if anyone can add in some inputs on hardening/securing of these mobile codes.

Too much are intertwined that I can replace these Adobe products
I am running FMLE on windows 7.
For some reason, FMLE is not starting anymore.  I have restarted the computer numerous times, and have tried to start the script, but it keeps on failing.

Any suggestions?

I have a 60-inch plasma television connected to my laptop's docking station (port aggregator) by way of a USB-to-HDMI converter. In the following Settings dialog, it is identified as display number 3:

I have a subscription to NBCSports.com where I use Mozilla Firefox to stream live and recorded content. So that I can watch the videos on the 60 inch screen, I select the USB to HDMI speaker for audio output…

 and then drag my browser over to the television screen (i.e., display number 3).

After logging in and selecting the video I want to watch, I get the following:

Although  I can hear the audio through the speakers connected to my computer, there is no video until I maximize the window…

I'm not sure why that is, but I can live with it. The real problem is that the audio is coming from my computer's speakers instead of the television's speakers. I'm not sure whether this is unique to the NBCSports.com site or the way in which FlashPlayer is being called, but I don't have any problems routing audio through the USB-to-HDMI connection when watching YouTube videos.

By the way, for the purposes of preparing this question, I muted the audio on the NBCSports.com tab. I use speech recognition to interact with my computer, and that was interfering with the process. Before anyone had an aha moment, I just thought I'd let you know.

While playing the video in full-screen mode on display 3, the taskbar on Display 2 looks like this:

Need more best practices & governance on mobile codes (eg: Flash player,
Pdf reader, JavaScript, Java Applets, ActiveX) as we have a few cases of
malicious codes being run when opening Pdf & 1 case of ransomware:

a) attachmt 1 is a screen of IE setting: mostly what to set in IE to stop ActiveX
    & to set to  Med-High (guess this is also to mitigate against ActiveX ?)

b) I wud say patch the various Adobe products (we use Adobe Flash &
     Shockwave) within 1 week upon release of patches ?

c) attachmt 2 has some suggestions on ActiveX & Java only: not much

d) Does AV mitigate against mobile codes vulnerabilities?  If so, keep
    AV signatures updated   is another mitigation

e) I'm sure IPS (NIDS & HIPS) have signatures for mobile codes but in
    McAfee's case, by default, they are rolled out in Detect & not Block
    mode?  Should they be in Block mode?

f) any other best practices & governances for mobile code?

My vulnerability scanner keeps screaming that one of my Server 2012 R2 Standard servers is running a vulnerable version of Flash, which I can't find.  The server has all the latest Windows Updates and I have uninstalled the User Experience feature and rebooted and rescanned, don't know what else to try on this one.
I see Chrome has HTML 5 as it's preferred media utility.  I help with technology at a small Catholic school and I want to be able to head any conversion issues off.  Is there something I can do to prevent issues with Flash-based sites or will Chrome automatically adjust for me?

Dear Experts,
I want to adjust my flash width automatically according to browser width, like we do with image width 100%
I'd like give the width %100 and height auto to fit the page, however it doesn't work.
how should I write it ? Below you can see the source code.. thank you

Flash: Good Bye and Good Riddance
Unlike yesterday's potentially overblown news about the demise of MS Paint—which was met with mixed feelings—I am quite happy to see the news of Adobe finally putting an end-date on support for Flash. It was a technology that was certainly helpful at solving the problem of online video and interactive games back in the early days, but its misuses (Flash-based site navigation, I'm looking at you!) performance inefficiencies, and security holes mean it's long past time to let it go.

I can certainly sympathize with anyone that still has Flash-based solutions they'll need to replace, though. Perhaps there'll be a nice market for developers to work on doing these conversions?

Does the PDF environment have enough ability (events and controls) to write a small applet and host it on my webpage ?

I have seen some games written as PDF, but w/o loading a bunch of software, I don't know.

Maybe Flash is what I should be looking at ?

Any help is appreciated.

Dear Experts,
I'd like to cache my flash movie on my html page, I do not want to download it again and again from the server when the page is called. Because, I will not change it for two weeks and the file is proportionally large. As far as I know, the browsers cache flash files, but I need to be sure..
I use https ( secure connection )
I wrote my html page like this. What do you think about it?

<!doctype html>
