    The last response from Reolink occurred during April. It is now July and an update has yet to be provided. An update to this thread is deemed necessary as time is running out.

    Sorry to have kept you waiting. Since the flash is available on Chrome in 2020. Our R&D team will develop the html5 late this year. : )

    I'm not optimistic that they will get this done as promised by the end of the year. If they truly were planning on delivering this, they would be starting now. This is not a small epic.

    It is now July 12, 2020 and 5-1/2 months left until the end of 2020. Is it possible to post any updates on your work on HTML5? Is it in Alpha or Beta testing at least or are you still ”working on it”? When you say you'll develop it later this year do you think it will only take a few months to develop?

    Just a quick reminder for Reolink.
    Flash EOL was anouced 7 years ago, and few weeks before the end nothing is available.

    I think, nobody should buy reolink anymore as it rely on this technology.

    A ”we're working on it” and a smiley is not enought.

    Not speaking about systems that was never supporting flash.

    Cynthia,
    I've read several threads in the reolink community asking the question since 2018 and everyone receives the same standard answer that ”[your] engineers are working on it.” I've seen this response in your forums as early as June of 2018. It seems you should be able to provide a bit more detail around where you are at with development rather than that generic answer or ”[you] forwarded this to [your] engineers” given this late date for the end of adobe flash You now have 21 weeks and 6 days (153 days, 3,672 hours, 220,320 minutes) to develop the html5 version for your customers (that includes me) or adobe flash will be ended for the products we purchased from you. If it takes you over 2 years to develop something that uses html5 instead of adobe flash, your development curve is quite a bit slow for improvements or fixes to your products.

    If you cannot develop an html5 version in time will you provide a refund to your customers? Can you answer with more details about your development of an html5 version rather than the normal spin of sooner or later? Can you provide any dates for a beta version of the html5 version? Can you tell there are a lot of frustrated people out there who are looking for answers rather than the non-answers you keep providing?

    I, for one, will be requesting a refund if you cannot deliver any html5 code by years end and I would suggest that others do the same. This is ridiculous that you cannot develop anything in over 2 years!

    The plan is officially releasing the HTML5 before the Google forbids the Flash, which means it could be the end of this year. Please rest assured and you can continue using web browser to watch the cameras by then. Sorry again for the inconvenience caused.
