Zoomed & Cropped


With the recent Chrome Beta update on Max OSX 10.9.3 I noticed that embedded youtube videos did not load correctly. This also affects any embedded flash content. This was very annoying as video flash content playback controls were not accessible. And for the life of me I could not figure out what the problem was. Whats interesting about this is both the built in flash plugin that comes with Chrome and the system level plugin downloaded from Adobe both are version However the system level plugin is the one that works correctly.

Today I decided to look into this, and I finally found the solution.

  1. Download the latest Flash Plugin from adobe http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
  2. Quit all currently running browsers
  3. Install the flash player (if its already installed you may uninstall/reinstall)
  4. Start Chrome, in the address box enter chrome://plugins/ (exactly as I put it here), hit enter
  5. You will see a list of plugins, in the top right corner click on “Details”
  6. Scroll down or search for the word “Flash” (see illustration bellow)

    How to Set System Plugin
  7. Disable the flash plugin with the a location of: /Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/Versions/36.0.1985.32/Google Chrome Framework.framework/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlash/PepperFlashPlayer.plugin
  8. Close this window, check that your problem is resolved by viewing either an embedded youtube video, or any other flash object
