Internet Archive is forcing Ruffle usage

Unread post by Mæstro » 2023-07-29, 02:13

Kinetic Novel will serve as an example site: any archived site with Flash will do. The Internet Archive is automatically converting these to Ruffle, which does not work in Pale Moon. I have the real Flash NPAPI plug-in and Flash on other sites and in locally saved SWF files still work. I want the real Flash versions on the Archive. How do I get them back?

:!: My heroic sister has kindly helped me to answer this, and I offer it for anybody else who uses Pale Moon to browse the Archive and view old Flash sites in their native state. Adding the filter ||web.archive.org/_static/js/ruffle.js in µBlock disables Ruffle on the site, and the ordinary Flash files run as normal.

This is good, it should probably have a companion post in Tutorials/How-to's. Different people will hit this issue at different times, and this thread will disappear from visibility on the web compatibility board within days, but the how-to's stay visible on page 1 for years.

Worth noting, ever since https://github.com/ruffle-rs/ruffle/pull/11407, Ruffle disabled itself on browsers with Flash support. Unfortunately, the Internet Archive is using an older version of Ruffle.
