    Running Win 10 with Chrome browser Version 67.0.3396.87 (Official Build) (64-bit). Cannot view You Tube videos due to their Flash Content. Every tutorial I've watched, ( or read ), is over-simplified, and does not work! I have gone into Chrome's advanced settings, added https://www.youtube.com/ to the allow flash content area. I've even disabled my hardware acceleration. Everything I've been told, or read about. Nothing works. So, I no longer have Chrome designated as my default browser, because I cannot watch You Tube videos. In an earlier version of Chrome, I learned what the "fix" for this predicament was, and I successfully implemented it, ( but that was 2 years ago ). I should have made note. Today, I cannot remember what I did, and therefore, I cannot duplicate that "fix" today, in hopes that it might work, and be effective with this newer version of Chrome. So, I need help. Please help me solve this? Please? It's not an ad blocker. I uninstalled it. It's not my anti-virus software either. There's some little, quirky trick to this, ( and I used to know what it is ), but I cannot remember now. So, please help me? Thanks so much....

    Mark.

    while someone works out the fix for Chrome, what about another browser; Firefox, Edge, Opera?

    You can visit https://www.youtube.com/html5 and set the "The HTML5 player is currently used when possible.". I've had no issues with youtube and I've purged Flash or set it to prompt to use (and don't receive such a prompt with Youtube) for some time.
    I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.
