Chrome has a built in Flash Player which is more than likely interfering with your ability to watch shows using that browser.

You can download Flash Control to help.

Once you are on the video page please do the following.
-Cick 'Allow Flash' on the control & Adobe Flash player turns on.
-This overrides the built in Flash Player & plays the video.

Please let me know if this helps.

Well I actually found a guide on how to clear my browsers cache and that fixed the issue.

Ok the problem came back and this time clearing my browsers cache didn't work so I tried this idea and it still doesn't work.

Could you explain not working for us?

-Is there a black box but no video options? Is there no black box? Anything else that would describe how it is not working.

Other questions:
-Were there any changes to your browser when this started (did you add an extension etc)?
-Take a moment and think what happened at the time of it no longer working.
-Did anything crash?
-Did you notice any other issues with Chrome that resolved itself or began working.

One of the easier solutions to try would be to uninstall Chrome and re install. Make sure you back up your bookmarks and extensions if needed. Make sure you delete all Chrome info when uninstalling. Before you add your extension back to the browser or make any changes try watching videos on CR then add them back. AddBlock and FlashBlock work fine with CR, but you do need to adjust settings for the site just like with every site. If the video plays before you make changes but not after redo the process but this time slowly read you changes and try watching a video after each change to attempt to narrow down what is causing the issue.

I have exclusively used Chrome as my browser the entire time I have been using CR but that does not mean you system has not had a glitch with the software.

Clear Chrome history:

Bookmarks backup:
Using the bookmark manager - Hit Ctrl + Shift + B and export bookmarks from the tools menu

Chrome User Profile:
C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default - vista\win7

Extensions:
If you do not have many just write them down and get them again. If you have a lot web search/youtube Chrome Extensions backup and you will be shown several add-ons that will do this for you.

Uninstalling Chrome Win/MAC/Linux

Wish you the best in getting this corrected.

You can also try disabling / reenabling the Flash Plugin.

chrome://plugins/

Plug that into your browser & it will give you a list of all plugins.
If disabling / reenabling does not work, please try disabling and then playing the video.

I'm having the same issue. Odd, I don't want to restart by browser yet because I have too many important tabs opened up. For now it's working in IE. I'll let you know once I find a solution. BTW, clearing cookies and cache for the site didn't work for me either.

If your browser crashed, what would you do?

You may want to check into setting your browser to restore the session on startup. Most modern tabbed browsers have this capability. In Firefox on Windows, for example, go to Options and the Tools menu, and on the General tab, go to the Startup section and change the drop down selection for "When Firefox starts:" to "Show my windows and tabs from last time".

I have no doubt that Chrome has a similar setting.

I fixed the problem by closing every Chrome window and restarting the browser. Even though Chrome has a separate task for each tab, you still need to close every window at times.

And Chrome does have a feature to restore if crashed. I just had a video I was buffering and didn't want to restart. Either way, the solution seems to be to restart your browser.

From what I could tell, it wasn't an issue with CR's new layout, but Chrome's recent update. It's just a coincidence they happened at the same time.
