My Chrome updated last night to Version 53.0.2785.57 beta-m, and I can no longer see embedded YouTube videos in this forum. Chrome is phasing out Flash support and I believe this forum's software (vBulletin) uses a Flash plugin to embed videos. The video below is a black box and does not load for me.

This is real, Chrome users may wish to switch to another browser, but ultimately flash is considered deprecated technology and Google has joined Apple in trying to push it out.

Google to block Flash on Chrome, only 10 websites exempt - CNET

"As a result, Flash will still come bundled with Chrome, but "its presence will not be advertised by default." Where the Flash Player is the only option for viewing content on a site, users will need to actively switch it on for individual sites. Enterprise Chrome users will also have the option of switching Flash off altogether."

Welcome Adobe Animate CC, a new era for Flash Professional
Quote:
For nearly two decades, Flash Professional has been the standard for producing rich animations on the web. Because of the emergence of HTML5 and demand for animations that leverage web standards, we completely rewrote the tool over the past few years to incorporate native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support. To more accurately represent its position as the premier animation tool for the web and beyond, Flash Professional will be renamed Adobe Animate CC, starting with the next release in early 2016. [Update 2/8: Animate CC is now here!]

Animate CC will continue supporting Flash (SWF) and AIR formats as first-class citizens. In addition, it can output animations to virtually any format (including SVG), through its extensible architecture.

Not sure what you're trying to say, Poncho, but the fact that Adobe has necessarily changed their animation creation software to keep up with modern standards isn't going to help people view all the content on the web that was made to old standards.

Change is very slow, but it comes eventually. This decision by Google seems designed to accelerate that change.

This is just my 2 cents as a budding web developer and Internet user since the early 90's.

We don't know yet...

Following Google is not going to make things better, in my opinion... Chrome by Google is what broke video for users here, right now.

Where did I say I think Google does everything right? Chrome isn't even my fave browser. My first suggestion was that those affected might change their browsers, which is a way of voicing discontent to google.

Firefox is crashing on me semi-often lately, I don't know why, but it's the only one giving me problems. I'm a Mac user. Right now I think Opera is my favorite browser, but I use them all.
