Flash Player EOL

Hi, I’m new in electron and I’m a little bit confused reading announcements that chrome will stop supporting Flash.

I’m using flash in my electron app to run flash games in the embedded browser.

Will it be possible to run flash games after flash player end of life in 2021 if I lock my app to use some old version of electron?

It should, yes. But over time the old version of the embedded Chromium might become less compatible with whatever operating system you’re running on, so it may not be a permanent solution.

Does anybody know if it’s ok to distribute an Electron app with Pepper Flash Player plugins embedded? I can’t find any info on this anywhere. Thanks!

I don’t know. However my first idea would be to explore Haxe/Electron in haxelib (as your Electron wrapper) and then explore Haxe flash. There are a number of Haxe tutorials around. It is easy to launch an Electron scaffolding.
