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?
