In August of 2016, we announced our intention of removing Flash as a part of the core Video.js project.
As Html5 video becomes the standard playback tech and Flash fades into obsolescence, it is time
to remove Flash from the core player and move it to a separate code base. This will give us the ability
to allow developers to continue to support legacy browsers by adding the tech themselves, while allowing
us to minimize legacy code in Video.js and decrease the footprint of the player.
This follows in the footsteps of Chrome, Safari and Firefox which are all taking steps to deprecate Flash.
As of the Video.js 6.0 release, the dream of a Flashless future will come closer to a reality.
