since Adobe does not support Flash anymore and nearly all browsers and OS too, I think it does not make sense to include follow things:

  • swfobject
  • flash fallback for upload
  • pupload flash

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

Reopening, as I think this is different enough to be considered separately from #52576, which only focused on a single message in MediaElement.js.
