Flash problem solved!

Flash problem solved!

Are you frustrated because you've updated Flash and Chrome and you still get the screen saying you need to get the current version of Flash? 


I had this problem all weekend until I stumbled onto the answer in an Adobe support forum. I imagine you've already updated flash, and enabled it in settings? If not, make sure it's enabled. I had done those 2 steps, and was still getting the Flash incompatability screen when I tried to stream TV or movies on my PC, and I had the current versions of Flash and Chrome, and it was enabled - there is one more thing you need to do.

Go to: chrome://flags/#prefer-html-over-flash

And make sure that that setting is "Disabled" - when you change it to disabled, it will prompt you to restart your browser Click that, Chrome relaunches, and you should be able to stream video on Chrome. I was very ticked off after I had tried numerous times re-downloading and installing the current version of flash, and updating my Chrome browser to version 60.

You should be good to go!
