YoWindow doesn't work on Chromebook, Chrome OS and Linux

Post by par » Mon Aug 24, 2015 7:58 am

Recently I have received many reports that YoWindow is no longer displayed on Chromebook/Chrome OS/Linux.

It looks like Flash Player has become blocked or missing in Chrome on these platforms.

I don't know why. Does anyone know why Flash could be missing?

YoWindow requires Flash Player in order to display its content. Otherwise we cannot show the landscapes in Chrome now.

Do you know how to fix this? How to enable Flash Player in Chrome OS? Is it even possible now?

Hi Pasha,

This may be a temporary fix.

My Win7 had an old version of Chrome and an old version of Adobe Flash.
I updated Adobe Flash and still had problems with Chrome.
Since I had an old version of Chrome, I was not able to update it.

I uninstalled Chrome and then added the latest version of Chrome.
I was then able to get the free version of YoWindow from the Chrome store.

The last time that I checked, YoWindow was still working on Chrome.
I will test it in the next few days to see if it still works.

I hope this information helps.

Marty

Thank you for the investigation, Marty!

YoWindow does work in my Chrome on Mac and Windows.
It looks like the problem is only seen on Chromebooks, Chrome OS and Linux.
Probably Flash has become turned off by default on these systems.
I wonder if the user can enable Flash on Chromebook, or the support has been turned off permanently.
We need someone who can check this.

The Daily Mail article is too much sensational.
Flash has not been plugged off from Windows and Mac versions of Chrome.
