Question

Is there a timeline for a complete migration from Flash?

I've disabled Flash and I'm not going back. I did this for many reasons which are probably out of scope for this discussion. My inquiry is: when can I expect to stop seeing these "Flash is required for this song" messages? The mobile iOS client works fine and as far as I know doesn't use Flash at all.

Hi there Chris,

Thanks for getting in touch about this. Unfortunately, I won't be able to provide an ETA for when Flash will no longer be needed for SoundCloud to work 100% w/o Flash. However, have you considered using Chrome? Chrome actually has its own Flash plugin that comes with the browser, and it could be a way to work around installing Flash system wide.

All the best
Mathis

P.S.: It is, however, still something our product team are working towards.
Hi Mathis,

I know about Chrome. However, there are computers where I'm going to allow any Flash content, period. I would like to access some content that is currently Flash-only but I have yet to encounter any content which I deem essential enough to compromise on my No-Flash policy on certain computers.

Thanks for the reply.
