Step 5) Click Reload

Step 6) Make It Permanent

As of September 2018, Chrome will ask you to Allow Flash every time it starts. To avoid Chrome’s “Allow Flash” requirement, you can consider using a different browser, such as Firefox. Alternatively, IT professionals can use the information below to permanently enable Flash in Chrome (administrator privileges are required). The following instructions are provided on an AS-IS basis for technical reference only. Megaphone TV assumes no responsibility for any damages caused by changes made to your computer based on the information provided in this article.

Permanently Enable Flash in Chrome for macOS

On Mac Chrome, IT professionals can enable Flash permanently by following the steps below. Note that these steps should only be followed by your organization’s systems administrator or authorized IT professional. If you are not an IT professional, to permanently enable Flash, consider using Firefox, available for free at firefox.com.

1) In Terminal, run the following command to convert the Chrome.plist file to a plain text file:

plutil -convert xml1 ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist

2) Open ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist in a plain text editor such as Atom or Brackets.

3) Paste the following new keys into the <dict> element:

    <key>DefaultPluginsSetting</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>PluginsAllowedForUrls</key>
    <array>
        <string>https://[*.]megaphonetv.com</string>
        <string>https://[*.]megaphonecloud.com</string>
    </array>
    <key>RunAllFlashInAllowMode</key>
    <true/>

4) Save the .plist file.

5) In Terminal, run the following command to convert the Chrome.plist file to a binary file:

plutil -convert binary1 ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist

6) Either restart macOS or quit Chrome, then in Terminal run the following command, and then restart Chrome:

defaults read ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist

Technical Support

Megaphone TV requires an up-to-date web browser with Adobe Flash Player installed and enabled. For best results, Megaphone TV recommends using Google Chrome or Firefox.

Megaphone TV and Flash Player End of Life: December 31, 2020

Adobe Flash Player has officially been discontinued, and will stop functioning in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE, and Edge on December 31, 2020. Although Megaphone TV’s “on air” graphics application currently requires Flash Player, Megaphone is actively developing a new on-air application that will no longer require Flash Player. When the new on-air application is ready, Megaphone TV will contact all customers to provide a smooth transition away from Flash Player.
