Adobe Changes Streaming PDF Video Possibilities

Liat Gat - Founder

December 9, 2020

Hello lovely knitters,

Adobe has stopped distributing and updating its Flash Player, which is the technology that made our beloved streaming PDFs run. This means we are no longer able to offer that type of document, and the ones that exist already will stop working at some point before December 2020, if they haven’t already.

The good news is, though, this shouldn’t affect how you interact with our material too much. You will still definitely have access to your classes – forever.

Just to be clear, the online experience isn’t affected at all, and you can view your classes as usual by going to your My Classes page (click “My Classes” in the KnitFreedom menu bar).

How to View Your Classes Offline

If you prefer to view your classes offline, this is still absolutely possible, with one small adaptation. You will need to download the PDF and the video files to your computer or other device separately.

You can find all the videos for your class at your Video Downloads page. (For further help with how to download your videos, please see this FAQ.)

How To Use The PDFs With the Videos

Once all of the information is downloaded to your computer or other device, you will be able to enjoy your full class without an internet connection. Simply follow along with the class in your downloaded PDF as usual.

video placeholder imageWhen you come to a video, instead of seeing it stream in the PDF, what you will see is a placeholder with the name of the video you should watch. You can then easily select that video from among the ones you downloaded and watch it. Then you return to the PDF to continue with the class.

This will mean you have full offline access to your classes, even if the videos are now in their own file and you play them separately from the PDFs.

  1. I would like to participate in the felted slipper project; I have to admit that I “fell off the wagon” and have not completed my socks yet. I am turning the heel and am too embarrassed to tell you. Things like canning this summer got in the way but I am determined to finish them and hope to do so before I start the next project.

      Hi Sue! There is no shame in setting aside your knitting to do some other fun activities :) Personally I set aside an unseemly amount of WIPs to pick up sewing this summer. Work on your socks whenever it strikes your fancy – we’ll still be cheering you on!

      We would love for you to join us in knitting the Felted Slippers. It may be a good project to focus as it’s super simple with just the right amount of new techniques to enjoy like seaming and felting. We’ll be posting more details soon, so watch out for our emails!
