My Grievances with Flash

Updated on November 16, 2012, 2:42 PM - Written by Tim Buttner


This will be short as it mainly will pertain to my grievances towards the not too great video players that exist on the web. Mainly this is about Flash, which is an archaic and terrible video player. I have had nothing but issues with it, but it is used by too many people. And the problem I have is it is the glitchiest and crappiest player of them all. My money is on HTML5 as the future of web video.

The biggest issue with its widespread use is that it allows commercials to be put in between breaks in video, and HTML5 hasn't yet allowed this. However, it will and at that point it will be unbeatable. Flash has issues cutting to commercial breaks early, causing an event in JS so that the page cuts to a different video, skipping over sections of the video, it doesn't work on certain mobile devices, and many more issues. I absolutely hate flash and can't wait for the day when it is gone.

The day is near, but having to suffer through Flash is clearly something I'm going to have to do for a bit longer. When it's gone I will spit and dance on its grave. For anyone interested I'm putting a contract on flash. If you can kill it please contact me.
