Get rid of the need to use Adobe Flash
Time to eliminate Adobe Flash eh? Especially given mid June warnings!
Most Macs and other computers are killing off the need for Flash... Make cards without flash!
On iOS using Safari to access my SmugMug site, I have no problems with videos. The same goes for the SmugMug app. So it seems Flash is no longer required.
On the desktop, if you let Safari on the Mac default, it will use Flash. But if you tell Safari that its to pretend its Safari for iOS, it plays the video without Flash (Develop menu>User Agent). I just don't understand why it defaults to using Flash!
Signed up for Smugmug Pro version only to find out it uses Flash for ordering cards. Not sure if this is a deal breaker or not. But it does give me pause and I have to wonder if the site's designer's are competent. Please convince me that you guys are on the ball because this doesn't look good for you.

Yes, almost in the 4th quarter of 2017 and Flash is still required for videos. How embarrassing for Smugmug. iOS devices can't see videos, I don't want flash installed on my PC computers either. Seriously Flash in 2017??!!!! Please join the modern world.
Adobe Flash is dead. Rip it out!

How many years I've been waiting to see this malware magnet disappearing from a PAID site. Do I really have to move my galleries to some other place? Or make an own one?
It's ancient, dangerous and not supported by millions of iOS devices. If you want to appear a little bit modern, dear SmugMug, get into action. I will never ever reinstall Flash

Completely agree. It is quite an anachronism to see the "holy batman" warning pop up on my smug mug statistics page while it is nowadays trivial to do beautiful graphs in HTML5.
Get rid of Flash... it is a toxic security threat, does not work on IOS and shortly will not work on most browsers. Until then, please warn new users that the site they just put together will not be viable by many people they send it to.
Smugmug should not need this advice to from users. Your own technical director should have fixed this problem long ago.

so my stats stop working because chrome those not support flash anymore in 53. I find it very disappointed that a paid site is still using insecure obsolete flash. How about moving into the 20th century.

Use HTML 5 for stats/graphs instead of Flash.
I do not want Flash installed on my computer.
Smug should explain that full screen option requires flash which Apple does not support. But you don't explain that on your web site.
Flash is insecure and really obsolete... Firefox will remove support for NPAPI/flash-plugin sooner or later. This should become a high-priority request.

Just get rid of the toxic waste....
Well, you can see the stats without Flash, but there's no graph. What seems worse to me is that the buttons in the Get A Link panel in the new SM don't work on FF unless Flash is installed. I had uninstalled Flash a month ago and was doing just fine till I migrated my SM site.
Google and Apple are doing just fine without it. Why can't SmugMug?

Please remove the use of flash ... I don't think I have to explain why

Drop Adobe Flash

I can't see stats for my smugmug photos because I don't have flash installed. That's very sad.
