I can't play Flash videos on YouTube in my Google Chrome. I have the latest version of Google Chrome (31.0.1650.57 m) and Adobe Flash Player plugin is activated, but instead of the video I see a black rectangle. I need help.

edit When right clicked on on black square I see 2 options: Movie not loaded and About Adobe Flash Player

RESOLVED The problem was in browser cache. After cleaning it out everything became to work as usual.

I've tried to use only one of them(only pepper or adobe) but the problem stayed the same: black square instead of video – maks Nov 26 '13 at 23:57

ive recently observed that if pandora is running at the same time i try to launch a flash instance in the browser, the tab hangs. i just quit pandora and everything works... maybe they both call the same DLLs or something weird like that.
