Live TV and Windows 10 FLash Player Cliclk-to-run

In Windows Insider Build 15002, Microsoft introducted Click-to-Run for Flash Player in Microsoft Edge.  From https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2017/01/09/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-1...:

 

Quote:  "Flash Click-to-Run: Microsoft Edge will now block untrusted Flash content by default until the user explicitly chooses to play it. This means better security, stability, and performance for you, while preserving the option to run Flash when you choose. You can learn more about this change on the Microsoft Edge Dev Blog: Extending User Control of Adobe Flash with Click-to-Run. We will be evolving this experience in upcoming flights to make the option to run Flash content more contextually obvious."

Unfortunately, http://video2.timewarnercable.com/liveTv does not even recognize that Flash Player is installed.  Rather, the user is presented with the message:

"You are amost ready to watch TV.

Install the Adobe Flash plug-in now - it only takes a minute."

Followed by a blue box reading "Install Flash Now"

 

Since Adobe Flash Player is integrated in IE in both WIndows 8 and Windows 10,  as well as MIcrosoft Edge in Windows 10,  it appears the browser isn't even beng properly recognized.

I'm sorry for the issues you've had with the TWC TV app.  One online article found suggested that Flash needs to be enabled.  I included a link here.  If your issue is still not resolved, please contact us directly at TWC_ForumsHelp for assistance.

Windows 10 is moving to Click-to-run in the Creater's Update to be released later this year, at which time none of your Windows 10 customers will be able to use Live TV if it isn't changed.  I'll contact TWC_ForumsHelp.

@TWC_JamesM, tweeted link to th this topic to @TWC_Help and @Ask_Spectrum hoping they'll understand that the issue has to do with the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update and not the current release.   https://twitter.com/SecurityGarden/status/822471177356636163

@drevo, lucky you.  Maybe we'll see HTML5 in the next decade or so.  Smiley Happy

Re: Live TV and Windows 10 FLash Player Cliclk-to-run

I recently updated to the Windows 10 Creator version and enabled Flash.  Live TV doesn't work.  It says that I need to download the newest version of Flash.  Whatever way they are trying to detect Flash, you never get the Click-to-run button in Edge.  Since this update is being rolled out to Windows 10 users, I think Spectrum needs to expedite a fix for this.

I found the Chrome does indeed still work in the Creator Update.  You need to enable Flash within Chrome by using the Chrome://settings/content command.  Then enable Flash.

I have Flash enabled in Chrome. spectrum.tv just shows the spinning blue circle in perpetuity. Same thing in Edge. I've tried on two different Windows 10 machines.
