    No. I've already said its happening on all our machines, and that they have the latest release on them.

    Not quite true. Try playing a YouTube video on a Windows 7 PC/VM that doesn't have the Flash Player ActiveX plug-in installed. It will default to the HTML5 player.

    I imagine uninstalling the Flash Player plug-in probably isn't an option though?

    Not particularly, lol. I'll try it tomorrow.

    You can disable the active x plugin on particular domains.

    That creates a white list, not a blacklist. So, I'd have to list all the sites that can use it rather than those which can't. Not really at all suitable!

    Removing it allows Youtube to work, but this isn't really a usable option.

    Could you put it in a restricted security zone in IE that did not allow ActiveX plugins, this may force a fallback to html5 and be deployable in GPO.

    I'm not keen on doing that, as its more of a temporary workaround, which we already have in the form of telling everyone to use Chrome.

    It might be just this version of Flash mixed with the specific version of IE or something. I'll live with it until the next release of Flash.

    @localzuk:

    We have the opposite!

    Just had a member of staff report that flash content on a CD wont play!

    Strange that flash content will play through IE11 but not through the flash player although right clicking on the CD video actually gives the normal flash details!

    Very strange indeed will have to investigate further

    Its high time that everything was migrated away from Flash to more modern technologies. Most school related interactive content could be produced in HTML5 now with a little work.

    Totally agree!

    Financial reasons are why these software companies don't!

    I am having this problem at home now, I have upgraded flash and youtube is suddenly massively flakey for me, working on some vids, but errors on others. Connection is fine and stable and its on every browser on my machine.

    Personally I hate this program with a vengeance too, you just know its a poor program when its upgraded every 10 minutes and every fix cures security holes and flaws.

    On one recent enough occasion it broke IE for us and I had to script its removal so I could then reinstall an older working version on our campus, very frustrating and buggy software imo.

    Is the issue flash doesn't install correctly or it won't play videos. To clarify its not the headphone needed issue. If it is you can disable the audio jack detection which will fix the issue.

    It wont play videos correctly for me here, it played 2 and now I am getting an "error has occurred" on my home PC, sound is fine.

    Flash should be obsoleted now for html5 I agree on that !
