    Anyone in broadcasting still using Adobe Flash on their websites? Stop!

    It's officially dead as of the end of 2020. Good riddance, as far as I'm concerned. I quit installing it a year and a half ago.

    Here are the browser vendors' plans for its demise:

    well, i see that Adobe is doing something websites themselves haven't done yet, and that's pretty much kill flash support all together.

    i think any site still using flash in 2017 will get rid of Flash soon.

    but instead of 2020, why not do it next year instead. is Adobe giving the sites enough time to get converted to HTML5.

    which websites are using HTML5 for radio station streaming already.

    For my business, I had my site redesigned in Wordpress. Isn't radio utilizing Wordpress?

    That's WNAM Oshkosh, WI. Lately I get told I need to install Adobe Flash but it worked anyway. I haven't been able to get the site to work since a Windows update but I don't get the Flash message. If I got to the old Mini Page web site I have to click where Flash is used to get it to display. Although that web site hasn't had a new feature since April.

    I found out my TiVo has iHeartRadio and I noticed I could listen to WNAM using iHeartRadio. I'm doing it right now, but unfortunately Adele is playing. But my window air conditioner makes so much noise it's not that big a deal.

    I am aware that certain sports broadcasts aren't allowed on streams, so I get what the station would have aired were the game not on. Any chance iHeartRadio could do this for all sports teams if the station's format is music?
