As some of you may know Google Chrome will start blocking Flash in December

I know that the backend uploaded of M1 is using Flash.

What is the impact of no flash for Magento ? What other features are using flash and can't work without it ?

I'd like to get answers for both M1 and M2

Update: according to one of the Magento developer, a 1.x update that drops flash support is coming soon


For Magento 1.9:

$ find -name "*.swf"./js/tiny_mce/plugins/media/moxieplayer.swf

So it would be the uploader "only" and some media player currently affected

For Magento 2.1.0:

$ find -name "*.swf" 

Only that player is the remaining Flash file. It is a "Fallback player for AS3" - some video streams I believe.

As long as you don't use such streams in your CMS content, I don't think there will be an impact - and as this is a fallback player, there also is probably a HTML5 player already implemented.
