Just reporting video play back issues
High cpu usage mid way, even the ads stuttered.
Browser tab became unresponsive, can't watch anymore.

Safari which usually works without issues
Just updated to the latest flash 23.0.0.207 yesterday

Then tried vivaldi (like opera, which has the same engine as chrome)
Didn't have flash so installed new PPAPI flash plugin for the browser but same issue

Tried to restart many times with the same issues
No issues with ipad at all.
Therefore not network or browser issues.
Most like caused by the mac version of flash 23.0.0.207

Please consider to give the option to play without flash even on mac/pc.
since CR already has the capability to display ads with html5 now, like on iPad and Chrome with the extension "CR HLS Player",

Thank you

That's a user created extension, by beardfist, and not an officially supported add-on.

Yes, seems like it, what a genius guy. that extension works on Vivaldi browser too by the way.
So that means that CR has the underlying system to play videos and ads without using Flash and only HLS or HTML5
I just thought rather than letting users create their own way to watch the non flash version, might as well make it available easily.
