replacement for Flash-based interactive music player?

Postby perdman » Mon Jan 25, 2021 9:39 pm

As of January 12th, Adobe has blocked all Flash content from running in Flash player. Most browsers (including my own) will no longer allow Flash to run.

For years I've relied on the wonderful Flash-based Interactive music player on LDS.org to quickly transpose hymns. But sadly it is no longer available. Now, when I visit https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/music/library/hymns all I get is the MP3 audio playback and PDF-based sheetmusic display. There are no options for transposition, so I'm required to spend a lot more time doing the transpositions myself.

Will a non-flash alternative be developed that brings back this functionality?

Is there some place else I need to ask this question in order to get an answer?

Using the 'Feedback' link or button is the best way to get the issue raised to those who make development decisions.

When our unit was limited to only having virtual sacrament meetings, we also used the Flash music player, to show the words and also play the music (with singing) at the same time. Testing it out now, it seems like the main page you linked allows you to play the hymns with the singing accompaniment, but when clicking a particular hymn to display the words, the music player only does the instrument but not the singing. I'm not surprised this ended up happening, but I'm sure a number of people will miss it for a variety of reasons.
