Subject: RE: PermaThread: Free On-Line Trad Folk Performances
I have been enjoying a number of the links, but I have problem with the Steve Gardham site at
https://sounds.bl.uk/World-and-traditional-music/Steve-Gardham-Collection

I find everything ok, but the songs do not play. IF the issue is something like allowing Adobe Flash to run, I may be out of luck. I flatly refuse to be required to do that when there are perfectly good players and other methods.

(I just found, by using ctrl-U, that it says "Please note flash is required to use the features of this site")

I am curious as to why they do this when the other sites I've enjoyed are more... ummm 'open'. Adobe has a very unhelpful attitude about their products, and in most cases I have alternative ways to see & use products. PDF files are easily viewed with other viewers. Adobe would seem to wish to lock the rest of the universe into their own system.

I sincerely appreciate the many links to the products of much hard work by many collectors.
