    No more Adobe Flash Player for me


    I don't see Adobe Flash Player when I play Youtube, it has HTML5 Player after the recent Update1.

    Got rid of JAVA a few years ago and hoping to get rid of FLASH in the future.

    There's still a lot of Flash content out there. I would also like to get away from flash, it crashes my FF every time Adobe flash updates while using flash content.

    I don't mind as long as it works without interruptions.

    Is that something in Windows 8.1 or in Youtube?

    I tend to use Firefox and haven't installed Flash for it. I've found over the months with Windows 8 (not 8.1) that some Youtube videos would play happily without Flash, but others still required Flash. It will be good if they've changed it so that they all play now.

    It isn't since Update 1, it was before that when YouTube started playing HTML5 video instead of Flash as default in Internet Explorer.

    I noticed this a while ago because you get the stupid 'Do you want to view YouTube.com in full screen?' fullscreen prompt from Internet Explorer all the time, and also because I get bad artifacts on HTML5 video for a few seconds on every video.

    Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to force Flash instead of HTML5 (at least not in Internet Explorer 11), otherwise I would do it myself.
