A browser add-on to replace Flash video players by their HTML5 counterpart.

Originally developed for Firefox, now that it is a WebExtension, it works in Google Chrome as well.

Because there are two things I hate the most on the "web":

  • Flash
  • EME
  • Chrome specific sites that claim to be the web.

Let's tackle Flash.

This feature has been reimplemented in Firefox 47 and Chrome 54.

If you have the Flash plugin enabled, then this addon is of no use for you.

What it does

Will replace known Flash embed on third party website with the HTML5 equivalent.

  • Youtube
  • Vimeo
  • Dailymotion

The original Mozilla bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=769117

See doc/main.md for more details.

To install

Visit https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/no-flash/

To build

This is a regular WebExtension. Just load it into the browser.

Status

This is currently experimental. But I use it every day.
