    Milind.Jha Adobe Employee (Admin)

      Welcome to the Flash Runtime version 24 beta!  We've been hard at work adding new features to Flash Player and we're looking forward to receiving feedback from our Flash Player community.

      This beta release includes new features as well as enhancements and bug fixes related to security, stability, performance, and device compatibility for Flash Player 24.  For full details, please see our release notes.


      • The ActiveX Flash Player in this release is not compatible with Windows® 8.x or 10
      • Flash Player for Windows® 8.x/10 is available as part of the generally available Windows® 8.x/10 update

      New and Updated Features

      Improved support for high resolution displays on Firefox for Windows

      Beginning with Flash Player version 24 and Firefox version 51 on Windows, Flash content will now scale appropriately on high resolution displays.

      Separate HTTP and HTTPS permissions for Camera and Microphone

      To provide users with a better control over their camera and microphone data, Flash Player now provides a more fine-grained control over how permissions are granted. Users can now allow camera and microphone access for a domain when that content is served via HTTPS, and disallow the access when content from the domain is served over HTTP. Since this feature is currently in beta, the settings will not be visible in the Global settings Manager.

      Flash Player PPAPI & NPAPI for Linux

      With this Beta we are providing 32 and 64 bit binaries in tar.gz format for NPAPI and PPAPI Linux. We will be adding RPM installers and Standalone players in upcoming Beta releases.
