    Yeah, you go to youtube.com/html5 to enable HTML5 video.
    But I don't think it works on all videos, at least not yet.
    You get videos which are supposed to have video advertisements before them with the flash player. Even if you use adblock and don't see the ad.

    Also, I need Flash for porno cuz many porno sites rely on Flash.

    Yeah, pretty much. Google seems to want to actively go in the other direction (more/better support for native code blobs attached to the browser), presumably to maximize the performance potential for apps in Chrome's app store.

Can't like open source take over and continue flash development? I don't understand why only google has the custom player in chrome? Why don't other browsers use it? I can't stand that chrome shit and like firefox, but the flash support is shit.
    Let me explain the process here:

    Google: The old NPAPI plugin architecture sucks. We want to replace it with a fancy new one we created, called Pepper.

    Firefox: That's stupid. Browser plugins are dying out, we're trying to move everything into HTML5, and you want us to create a whole new architecture for plugins? Then we'd have to keep maintaining the old one for backwards compatibility as well. It'd be a mess, and take us backwards, not forwards. We're not going to do it. Good luck getting others to buy in to this idea.

    Google: We're still doing it. Pepper is awesome.

    Adobe: Thanks for that investment google. Oh, ah, yes - we're going to stop supporting NPAPI plugins in linux. We'll still do it in Windows and Mac, just not linux. But we're letting Google access our code so they can put out a Pepper version if they want.

    Firefox: F***ing Adobe and Google. We're still not doing it. Nothing else but Flash on linux uses it.

    You should really see a doctor about that.
