Install Latest Google Chrome Adobe Flash Player Plugin


Error message: Sorry the video is no longer available. Learn how to get rid of this error and install Adobe Flash player on Google Chrome browser on Windows and Mac OS.

If you are using Google Chrome web browser then you might be aware of the fact that sometimes you can’t view YouTube videos from chrome. The video content is not displayed, and you get the message that reads: “Sorry the video is no longer available”.

This problem is due to the flash player. Though you have flash player installed on your computer and the YouTube videos works perfectly in other browsers like Firefox, Opera, then why does the flash plugin player doesn’t support Chrome browser?

This is due to the incompatible nature of chrome with the new Macromedia Flash player.

Fix Chrome And Adobe Flash Problem

So here is quick fix for those who want to watch YouTube videos on Google Chrome browser. Basically we are follow these three simple steps:

  • Close all the browsers on your Windows or Mac PC.
  • Remove (uninstall) Adobe Flash player completely.
  • Download older or any other version of Flash player from Macromedia website.
  • Install the player on our PC.

Flash Player on Chrome

First step is to download the Flash player uninstaller file and uninstall the current flash plugin from your system. Here are the uninstallers for both Windows and Mac OS:

Adobe has the updated Flash player 10 beta for Windows and Mac. So download them and install the flash player once again.

Of course, close all the browser while doing so and after the set up – restart the system.

    I am using Ubuntu Linux. Chrome OS is a linux operating system. I am surprised you left out us Linux users. However being geeky I will try to solve it myself.

    Thank-you,

    Disable the WEB SCANNING (or the whole application if web scanning does not fix the problem) to solve the problem of youtube reporting: “Sorry the video is no longer available”

    Worked perfectly. I had to install flash 10 twice, but it worked.
    I restarted the computer after installing flash 10 the first time. Once it had re-booted, I still couldn’t view flash (video). I installed it once more, and it worked. Use this website for flash 10: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

    Thanks,

    -Dan.

    This method was easy and did work like written. Remember to reboot or log off!

    However I am not pleased with the result. I don’t know if its flash player 10, or their fix for chrome to recognize the installed copy,But when I use youtube the video wants to buffer completly before it plays, then while its playing, that grey circle activity animation that normally rotates in the center of the video remains there flashing. It looks like its reporting the activity from keyframe to keyframe or something. The progress only makes it to the second dot then starts over, making it “flash” This sux im going back to the old method.

    Its a manual workaround where you download a file (flash9.xpi?), change its extension to .zip extract 2 particular files and put them in your google chrome plugin directory (which you have to create)
    I haven’t watched that video, but I am familiar with the process. I also know the plugin directory is in a different location when installing with “Google Pack”
