Move To HTML5

Highly recommend moving from flash to HTML5. Many work provided mobile devices restrict app installing and since Android and Apple don't have flash support so you cannot stream the cameras through browsers. Flash has become very restricted in its support. Moving to HTML5 would solve a lot of issues and provide better future compatibility.

I can't even use arlo without flash . It does get extremly aggravating to have to turn flash on when the camera is used , and then back off if the camera is not on,  in fear of hackers . Why can't you provide a fix .

Has there been any word when Arlo/Netgear will be redesigning their web interface to remove the need for flash? I would assume they will go with HTML5. I suspect Google will be completely discontinuing support for flash some time soon.

When I try to view camera views from your website, it says I have to have Flash. Due to security concerns, I've eliminated Flash from all our home computers, and it's not allowed on our work computers. While I can still see the live view and recorded videos on my iPhone, I can't see live views on the computer. Flash is going to be discontinued anyway, so why don't you change your website to use h264 or HTML5 or some other non-proprietary and more secure video codec? Get with it Netgear, and dump Flash!

Logging in to Arlo using Edge on new HP Windows 10 PC. Page opens then prompts me to update flash. I ALREADY HAVE NEW VERSION OF FLASH AND IT'S ENABLED IN ADVANCED SETTINGS. I click “allow” and it kicks me out to log in a second time – EVERY TIME! This is very undesirable if an emergency is occurring. Also flash is outdated tech no one wants to use anymore. I’d called tech support for help and was informed this was unavoidable and I’ll always have to log in twice. Very disappointing!

I second this idea. You already eliminated this from iOS devices, so why do you require flash on the website?

Flash is dead. Get with the program Arlo!

Flash is quickly being deprecated - HTML5 compatibility needs to be a priority for your dev team!

I think if we all stop buying Arlo gear and stop using Netgear stuff then they might get the message just before they go bust!

This thread has been going for years with no apparen't action by Netgear.  Either there is some major impedient preventing a switch from Flash, or they intend to send certain product to End of Life. One would think they would acknowlege this customer concern one way or another...
