Installation and update of the flash player on Smart TV
Update from 04.2021!! Now Flash Player for Smart TV and any other operating systems is more irrelevant. Officially stopped support for the technology, and its developer strongly asks to remove the application from all devices. Why did it happen? The creators of the software refuse to work with Flash Player due to the low stability and vulnerabilities of the technology, giving preference to more viable HTML5, WebGL and WebASSEMBLY standards. Today, the official version of Flash Player simply does not exist, but still on the Internet we can find outdated assemblies of technology. We do not recommend installing them due to potential risks for Smart TV, as well as due to the lack of a need for a Flash system. Almost all films, games and other video players and animation banners are already using more fresh technologies. The information below is no longer relevant and is rather a reference character.
Flash player Smart TV is responsible for processing and showing the animated contents. Through Adobe Flash Player, many sites display video, animation and even music. If there is no installed player on the TV, all the places where the video content should be located are replaced by the image of a broken plugin. When the video on the sites does not work or freezes, the first thing is to install a new version of the flash of the player. About the methods of installing and updating the player and will be discussed further.
