    How to choose the plugin i wish to play in Chrome?


    previously, i was able choose the flash i wish to play with right-click to run the plugin content but now it auto-play with audio working good but no video playing in Football News and Scores - ESPN FC & there's no selection to choose after right-click.

    chrome v52.0.2743.116 m (64-bit)

    chrome://settings > privacy > content settings > plugins > let me choose when to run plugin content

    literally, i need to select "detect and run important plugin content (recommended)" so that the video is playing properly.

    any suggestion? thanks.

    Chrome ditched the flash, so better get used to using HTML5.

    Google wants to effectively kill Flash, Chrome will default to HTML5 by Q4 2016

    @TairikuOkami i tried to disable adobe flash player thru chrome://plugins & let me choose when to run plugin content, the video is working but whenever i visit the website, the video will auto-play itself & eat my bandwidth.

    apparently, the issue is within ESPN or chrome? literally, i tried EDGE also acted the same scenario.

    This is one the reasons, why I hate HTML5, it can not be really disabled, it is much heavier than flash, it is a security risk. I use 2 extensions, HTML5 disabler works 95% of time and flash for youtube is super, pity it can not be done for all pages.

    Disable HTML5 Autoplay - Chrome Web Store

    Disable Youtubeâ„¢ HTML5 Player - Chrome Web Store
