Adobe Flash Media Player is currently required to broadcast streams and watch streams on the desktop site of MyFreeCams.com.

Flash is being gradually phased out and we will be switching to newer forms of encoding and streaming.

We will post updates here that are important during the transition.

Chrome Web Browser

The Chrome Web Browser will be among the first to phase out the use of Flash. The information below will outline how you can set up your Chrome browser to allow Flash to run properly.

Recently, Google updated the stable version of Chrome to v69. From this version on, sites using Flash will need to be set to Allow each time the browser is restarted.

If you wish to allow the Chrome browser to Allow Flash even after a browser restart please do the following:

  • Enter chrome://flags/#enable-ephemeral-flash-permission in your browser address bar.
  • Change this setting from Default to Disabled (and restart Chrome when prompted).

  • Then, go to www.myfreecams.com
  • Click the padlock that is on the left side of the site URL in the address bar.
  • To the right of Flash, click the dropdown box and choose the Allow option.
  • Reload the page and verify the Flash drop-down shows Allow.
  • Additionally, you can go to chrome://settings/content/flash in your Chrome browser address bar and click add and enter "myfreecams.com" as an allowed host to run Flash.

This workaround will be removed from Chrome in v72
