We have a website that has audio-video content in the format of
.swf files. There are thousands of active users on the website.
The problem that came up is that some of the new browsers these days do not support Flash.
Some users reported that they are trying to run these files on IE 11 on Win 7. So instead of playing that video, it starts to download itself.
We cannot ask all of our users to use Chrome or try other browsers. We also cannot convert
swffiles to HTML5 supported videos.
Is there any way that we can implement so that these files will play in browsers?
swf files are not working in IE 11 on Windows 7. But they are working on IE in Win10.
Here's an example code we are using-
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="400" height="300" id="movie" align="center"> <embed src="http://www.w3schools.com/tags/helloworld.swf" quality="high" width="400" height="300" name="movie" align="center" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" plug inspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" /> <param name="movie" value="http://www.w3schools.com/tags/helloworld.swf" /> </object>
