Why is the browser using Flash instead of WebRTC?



  • Yarin Snapir

    Hey, I enabled webrtc and my website uses https. When browsing using Microsoft Edge, Ziggeo Recorder still asks me to install flash. Is it a known issue with Edge? Is there something I can do?

    Hi Yarin,

    Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge do not support WebRTC. They have a less popular variant created by Microsoft which Edge uses called ORTC, as such our player and recorder will fallback to Flash and the reason why you are seeing that message.
    Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done to not use Flash on them at this time.

    @Bane, is this still the case about Edge? Do they still not support WebRTC?

    Hi Chirag,

    Yes and they will not add the support for it in neither IE nor Edge.

    Per latest updates Microsoft decided to drop the IE and Edge improvements completely, and just go with a Chromium based browser (like Google Chrome) instead. Once this new browser is out they will have a proper support for WebRTC with the same.
