Dynamic Media classic users now have access to a new sign in experience that no longer relies on Adobe Flash technology in the browser.
Adobe Flash Player was a web browser plug-in that let web browsers use content developed on the Adobe Flash Platform. The web user interface of Dynamic Media Classic (currently labeled Scene7 Publishing System or SPS in the product) required the Adobe Flash Player. When Adobe Flash is deprecated December 31, 2020, Dynamic Media Classic customers will no longer be able to log into the web user interface. Because of this change, Adobe has provided customers with a desktop app that replaces the browser experience.
The new desktop app is available as a
.dmg installer for macOS or as an
.exe installer for Windows®.

The download links are also available by way of the Dynamic Media Classic newsletter subscription page.
After you download, install, and launch the desktop app, you are presented with a refreshed sign in experience. By entering your existing user name and password and selecting the appropriate server based on your region, you can sign in to Dynamic Media Classic. The overall experience is the same as the familiar web browser version you are used to. From the desktop app, you can access the Dynamic Media Classic Production and Staging environments. You can also access Media Portal if you are credentialed for this capability.
Only one instance of the desktop app can be installed and active at a time on a given computer. However, there is no restriction on the number of installations you can have across computers.
