    Default Flash player

    I am really starting to like Chrome, but might have to give it up, cause i cannot get Adobe's Flash Player to install.

    I have tried over and over, and i am thinking that maybe it is because i am running XP Service Pack 3.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Default

    switch.au

    I appreciate the reply, but i'm kind of a noob. When i do a search for "shockwave flash 10.0.2 d26" I do not find any download pages. I have uninstalled the flash player, but can't find the file your talking about.

    Default didn't work

    Well, i tried just about everything.

    I unstalled flash player.

    I also uninstalled chrome.

    Rebooted.

    Reinstalled chrome.

    Reinstalled the new flash player you recommended.

    The results were, that it still asks for flash player to be installed.

    My thinking is, that because i have XP Service Pack 3, that is why i'm not seeing the changes you think i should see.

    I have sent Google Chrome an email stating this ( i dont expect a reply ).

    I will continue using Chrome, cause it feels faster, but i am disappointed that they released this program, without fully beta testing it.

    You are beta testing it. The program isn't a full release yet so you get bugs.

    Default flash 4 google chrome

    1. Download this xpi file.

    2. Then rename it to .zip. It’s a special archive file of only the plug-in bit of the flash player app from adobe that interacts with your browser.

    3. Extract it with Winzip to a place you’ll remember. (I did it to My docs but it can go anywhere.)

    4. Grab the flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll files. Copy them (Right click, copy)

    5. Head to C/Documents and settings/”YOUR USER NAME”/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/Plugins/ and copy your files in there.

    6. Close and restart Chrome

    7. Go to Youtube and try it out.

    8. I also put the files in this location to cover my bases but I think its unnecessary:

    C/Documents and settings/”YOUR USER NAME”/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/”File with a load of numbers instead of a title”/Resources/

    You’re welcome Internet. After all you’ve done for me.

    Hmm... flash works perfectly; Get yourself prerelase version 'Shockwave Flash 10.0.2 d26'

    1. Uninstall existing flash installations (ALL OF THEM)
    2. Install Flash
    3. Should work


    Perfect - the above worked first time - thanks Switch.au :-)

    Cool How to install flash player for Chrome on XP

    I had the same problem trying to install the flash player after I installed Chrome. Here is an easy fix:

    copy and paste this (all in one line) into the window at the top of the page next to the star (where the http address for the tab you are on is posted):

    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/

    get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe

    and then hit the arrow button on the right of that window. The flash program will pop up a window at the bottom of your browser. Click on the window and hit "install" or "run". Another window will pop up saying that you need to close chrome in order to install this player.

    Close chrome, and continue the install.

    When you open Chrome again, you have the flash player installed.

    This is easier than editing the code as some have suggested.

    Best,

    Prefect
