Adobe Flash Player is a free runtime cross-platform software that allows users to view multimedia content, execute rich Internet applications (RIAs), and stream video and audio created using the Adobe Flash multimedia and software platform.

Being a player that can be run from a web browser, a supported mobile device or directly on an operating system, Adobe Flash Player standardization lets creators reach audiences on a variety of platforms without having to deal with any additional software installations. Adobe Flash Player stands above any other runtime software available in the market with over 1 billion desktops and 500 million devices running it, and more than 3 million developers using the Adobe Flash technology to create engaging content for their audiences. In fact, 24 out of the top 25 games on Facebook and more than 20,000 apps in mobile markets are built using Adobe Flash.

Adobe Flash Player 11 is the latest update of the runtime software, but a beta of version 12, released on 14 January 2014 addresses vulnerabilities that could potentially allow attackers to take over any affected system which were present in Adobe Flash Player 11. Because of this, Adobe recommends users still running earlier versions, especially those running 11.9.900.170 and earlier, to update to Adobe Flash Player 12.

Despite these changes, Adobe Flash Player 12 still hosts many of the same features as Adobe Flash Player 11, providing users with the ability to experience dynamic and stunning multimedia, anytime and anywhere in a lightweight client.

In the realm of gaming, Flash Player 11 and its predecessor not only create responsive high-performance content with their native ActionScript workers and shared ByteArray support, they also leverage the power of OpenGL and DirectX graphics to create stunning cinematic worlds in both 2D and/or 3D for players to explore. Additionally, games can be delivered in full-screen with full keyboard support and better mouse usage that takes utilizes infinite scrolling, mouse lock, right- and middle-clicks, and relative mouse coordinates. All these features provide gamers with a myriad of ways to interact with the content presented to them and help designers create an immersive experience. Overall, the use of Adobe Flash Player enhances the enjoyment of playing games.

Most importantly, Adobe Flash Player allows users to view videos in the best quality possible. With the help of industry-standard codecs such as H.264, AAC, and MP3 as well as the use of hardware optimization, Flash Player 11 can play high-quality, hig­h-definition (HD) videos and deliver video content efficiently and flexibly to users from all over the hardware spectrum on online streaming platforms such as YouTube and Twitch.tv. Using its enhanced high-resolution bitmap support, content developers can create smoother animations and build high-performance vector graphics that can be displayed in true 1080p videos that take advantage of up to four CPU cores. Without Flash Player, most of us would have no way to spend our days. Imagining a life without YouTube and other streaming video sites is hard to do, but fortunately, with Adobe Flash Player, we don’t have to worry about that.

Adobe Flash Player 11 is compatible on most popular desktop web browsers (including Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer) To update your browser’s Adobe Flash Player plug-in, you can simply go to this website (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/) and follow the on-screen instructions. If you are interested in using some of the older versions of Adobe Flash Player, Adobe also provides an archive of previous Flash Player versions for users to download and install (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html). With easy installations and a number of benefits, there is no reason not to install Flash Player 11, or update when 12 becomes available to everyone.
