HTML 5 instead of flash
« on: June 12, 2014, 08:28:01 pm »
hi zooniverse folks,

as you might know, flas is an extremely vulnerable software concerning security. the latest vulnerability has just been discovered yesterday.

here's a list http://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list/vendor_id-53/product_id-6761/Adobe-Flash-Player.html

my proposal is to provide video in a HTML 5 fitting format. many sites i know were already converted to play HTML 5 and the transition isn't that much work. HTML 5 videos play much faster and there's no ruckling.

regards
Matthias

Newer Zooniverse projects do not use flash. The remaining few that still do will be upgraded (hopefully!) soon. But thanks for the link.
