Is Macromedia Flashplayer anygood to have?

Hi I am wondering if macromedia flash player 8 is any good to have? It doesn’t seem necessary, but I do come across some web content that need it. It seems if you can live without it would be better. Would this be right? Do they have certain access to your computer? Also aren’t they the ones who make copyright protections for dvd’s?

Darn I thought I was in the noob section. My bad.

no one?

If you want to watch Flash Animation then it’s good to have. :iagree:

Thanks :slight_smile:

That’s Macrovision. Macromedia is currently owned by Adobe, who make things like Photoshop, Acrobat, Premiere… Not nasty software like Macrovision.

The flash player is pretty essential for many websites, but if you like not using it unless absolutely necessary, and you’re using Firefox, you could get Flashblock.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I got it confused with Macrovision. I think I will install it.

If you do install it at all, make sure you keep it updated… a recent update is REQUIRED in order to counter a recent vulnerability
