Support for Flash continues to erode. Mobile browsers stopped playing Flash years ago, and reports suggest the end of full support for Flash in Google’s Chrome browser is imminent. More and more, it’s becoming obvious that Flash is not a long-term solution. But if you have Flash content in your online training materials, what can you do about it other than completely rebuild?

In this session, you’ll explore options for displaying your Flash content going forward so you can avoid having to re-create it from scratch. You’ll look at how you can capture your existing Flash content and convert it to a more future-friendly format. You’ll also learn how to provide a video fallback for your Flash presentations. To help you move forward, you’ll then find out how you can use the HTML video player to do much of what Flash does today.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How tools can capture the output from your Flash presentations and convert it to video
  • How to provide a video fallback for browsers that do not support Flash
  • What some of the alternatives to Flash are in modern HTML
  • How to control video playback with “track” files
