My streaming computer is set up with Chrome on Win 7. It works fine for most sites, using either HTML5 or Flash. I have the latest Chrome and Flash version installed. However, I am having a problem with a couple of sites that insist on using JW Player. With YouTube and other sites, I get either HTML5 or Flash content and it works fine. On the JW Player sites, HTML5 works but Flash does not. The problem is I cannot choose which to load first. If I have Flash enabled in my browser, the loading circle goes around forever and the video never starts. If I disable Flash, HTML5 loads and runs without problem.

 

I can’t leave Flash disabled because of all the sites I use that still depend on it. JW Player does not allow any client side settings so there is nothing I can do to change its defaults. The only solution is to have two browsers, one with Flash and the other HTML5 only. This is not particularly elegant. Does anyone have a better solution for this?

 

Here is an example of the problem: https://www.classicaltv.com/v455/american-ballet-theater-prokofiev-on-the-dnieper

I believe you can disable plugins by site on Chrome.

Thanks but it doesn't work. Flash is blocked but it is still seen as being installed so HTML5 is never offered, as it should be. What I need is something that will let me disable Flash completely for a specific site. That would work.
