Flash message

Postby becky5 » Sat Feb 09, 2013 4:41 am

Every time i try to listen to a talk on LDS.org I get a "Flash Message". I have an iPod and iPad get the message on both. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks!

Apple's portable devices don't support "Flash," which is used on the LDS.org site when you click the "listen" button on, say, a General Conference talk. (It's been a longstanding thing with iPhones and iPads. Not necessarily the fault of the web site designers... although with the number of users that have Apple iOS devices, maybe they should re-design the web site.)

But there is a workaround. Click the "Download" button and choose the Audio MP3 file. It will open a window with an MP3 player only. If you want to read the transcript while listening then you'll need to open the MP3 file in another tab.
