Default Flash setting

Allows you to set whether websites are allowed to automatically run the Flash plugin. Automatically running the Flash plugin can be either allowed for all websites or denied for all websites.

Click to play allows the Flash plugin to run but the user must click on the placeholder to start its execution.

Automatic playback is only allowed for domains explictly listed in the PluginsAllowedForUrls policy. If you want to enabled automatic playback for all sites consider adding http://* and https://* to this list.

If this policy is left not set, the user will be able to change this setting manually.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
