Updating flash on ipod touch

The company will continue to continue to contribute to the HTML5 standard and participating in the Web Assembly Community Group.The announcement comes more than 7 years after Apple cofounder Steve Jobs published his famous "Thoughts on Flash" letter, in which he slammed Adobe's web format as outdated and not suitable for portable, low-power devices.(It was designed for big, powerful computers, not highly portable, low power phones and tablets.) But all hope is not lost!There are still a variety of ways to watch Flash videos on your i Pad.If you want to watch it on your i Pad, you simply download the Ustream app from the App Store and you're good to go. Likewise, a lot of popular Flash games have versions of the same game in the App Store, ready for you to play with full native graphics and performance.Most of the time they'll even sync back to the same games you're playing on Facebook or Google .For a number of years Flash was one of the main vectors for attackers, forcing Adobe to issue regular patches.

In a statement on the matter, Apple says that its users have done without Flash for some time, and notes that the i Phone, i Pad, and i Pod touch have never supported the technology.

If a Flash video or game won't play in Safari, go to the App Store and search for the name of the website or the name of the game. Instead of trying to render Flash video on the i Pad, there are a few alternative web browsers on the App Store that render Flash on their own servers, then convert it to HTML5/H.264 video and stream it live to your i Pad. This is the nuclear option, but it's still an option.

Generally, you tap the Flash video you want to watch, it takes a few moments to start processing in the cloud, and then the video starts to play. If you really need to access a full Flash site on your i Pad, one way to do it is to establish a remote VNC connection to your laptop or desktop Mac or Windows PC.

Trying to figure out how to watch Flash videos on your new i Pad?

Unfortunately, Apple has never supported the Adobe Flash Player plugin (or any web browser plugin) for a number of stability, security, and other reasons, and Adobe has recently discontinued their attempts to get Flash to work properly on mobile devices in general.

The company notes that this includes issuing regular security patches, maintaining OS and browser compatibility and adding features and capabilities as needed.
