With the end of support of flash, my videos don't play


Since Flash is not supported anymore, my videos don't play. I'm using the default type jnt:video. What can I do?


The issue does not happen on ever browsers. For instance, recent versions of Chrome, Edge (based on Chromium) and Firefox detect such video and use an html5 video player. However, such videos do not play with IE11.

There's an option for jnt:video components to use the html5 player instead of the flash one. Simply edit the content, and set the "Force Flash Player" boolean to false. To quickly find which contents are concerned, you can run the following JCR query in the tools:

SELECT * FROM [jnt:video] WHERE [forceFlashPlayer]='true'
