No Flash? No Problem!

In the past couple of weeks, there has been a lot of attention around Adobe’s decision to use HTML 5 for mobile applications and games rather than use Flash. This announcement has led to speculation on what this means for web conferencing vendors that use Flash. You can read Ken Molay’s thoughts on it, Is This The Death Knell For Flash-Based Web Conferencing?

At ReadyTalk, we’ve designed our service to support both Flash and Non-Flash computer environments.

Flash will be around for a long time
While Adobe is no longer using Flash for mobile devices, ReadyTalk expects Flash to be around for a long time on the desktop. Flash is currently installed on 98 percent of computers, making it the best option for easily accessing your Web conference.

For ReadyTalk, Flash allows participants to join a conference in under 10 seconds, so meetings start on-time and without hassle.

We have an Alternative Now
ReadyTalk understands the importance for everyone to be able to get into a webinar or online meeting. We currently offer alternatives to our Flash client that allows those without Flash to still join the meeting.  Whether Flash is around for 10 months or 10 years, ReadyTalk customers and their participants, will be able to start and join web conferences across many platforms (Windows, Mac and Linux) and browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari).

ReadyTalk will continue to innovate on our audio and web conferencing services.  We will continue to support Flash as long as it delivers a great user experience.  Our mission is to create “WOW” for our customers through Service and Technology, and with that, you have our commitment to make sure that our service remains easy to use and accessible to all customers and participants.

What are your concerns surrounding Adobe’s announcement?

While it is comforting to know that Flash is not mandatory, how does not proceed when the browser forces "click here" with the message that it needs Flash? In short, how does one get out of Flash tyranny?

Hi John, We actually have a participant application which is launched using Java and runs as a separate application outside the browser. Simply hit the link that says "click here to join the conference without installing flash" and you will be sent to our alternative participant join method. I hope this helps you out - please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
