Adobe cancelled Adobe flash player in Dec 2020. The videos in the training tests run on flash player and need to be converted to updated playing software. I took the intro training test for thunderstorms and could not load the videos. I would pass if they were operating, but Flash player doesnt exist anymore.

Yep..flash is 'dead'

I can still play the videos on the training pages (just tried today) ... but really its a special case because I took some extra steps ahead of time to block all adobe spyware & auto disableing of outdated plugins.

Out of curiosity, I just grabbed some of the videos & converted one to MP4 today...in testing at home (on a locally saved version of the training page), it worked perfectly! (see example below)

Note to SpotterNetwork admin:
This is actually pretty easy to do, I should be able to convert the rest (going to try a few more sometime later). If you're interested let me know I'd be willing to try them all...
