I used to be able to watch some of the Videos. But only one comes on now....R90S factory video. All the rest say " Adobe flash player is blocked. What does that mean to me? I would like to watch some of them again.

Vintage Software

Unfortunately, our website is showing its age. I built it for the club in 2010, and while that may not seem old for we folks interested in 50 or 100 year old machines, aspects of the site are breaking or ceasing to function because it's so "old".

One of these is that older Adobe Flash Player that our site tries to use for YouTube videos is deprecated by most browsers now because it has a variety of security issues. Instead of this Flash player, most video is played using HTML 5 video players. The few videos that do play right now are on other systems (like Vimeo).

The Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge (replacement for Internet Explorer on Windows 10) browsers will play these videos (with a warning at the bottom that it may stop working at any time.) Firefox and Chrome will not. I don't know about the Safari browser on Macs, but I suspect it will not work there either.

The solution is to build a new website for the club that incorporates a modern player (among other things). I built this site while I was retired and spent several months putting it together. But now I'm working again...
