    You can't.

    I sought the extension, but not for this version.
    What other solutions?

    Try to find other extension?

  • I would ask for a specific solution. Concretely extension? how to ...

    Thanks

  • I use YouTube Center v2.1.7 on Opera 12.18, and that allows you to force the use of the Flash plugin.
    :)

  • Tnx davehawley

    But it does not work. Or maybe I do not know how to do. I installed Youtube Center version 1.31.6 of yeppha. When the install is basically nothing happens. YouTube still uses the HTML5 player. Are there any special settings, which do not? Or actually used a version v2.1.7?

    Please help.

  • Are there any special settings, which do not?

    Have you checked the extension settings? Usually you need to enable/disable such option in the extension settings.

  • Generally, when someone says to use a specific version of something, that is the version you should use.

  • Aaaaa, yes!

    I found the version v2.1.7 and this works OK. I found the settings Thank you very much.

    And Happy New Year!

    Thanks

  • Happy New Year to you too!
    I'm glad you got YouTube Center working. As I'm sure you've seen, it allows a lot of other very useful enhancements to YouTube as well as the ability to decide what player you want to use.
    It isn't being developed any more, so enjoy it while it lasts. Sooner or later YouTube will change their code and it will start to malfunction.
    Version 2.1.7 is the last release version. There are some developer versions which are later, and I run the last one (v538) in Firefox using the Tampermonkey script extension.
    2.1.7 is fine for Opera 12 though for now.

  • Aaaaa, yes!

    Could you share link to this version please. Thanks

  • Hello

    Ok people. It's me again. ;)

    The same problem. YouTube Center v2.1.7 does not work anymore :(

    We already have a solution? Please help ;)

    Tnx

  • Confirmed here, I guess YouTube have now blocked Flash completely.
    It no longer works at all on Internet Explorer 8, which is the other browser that still used Flash for me.
    What is the problem for you using HTML5? It seems to work fine for me.
    :confused:

  • Have you tried to watch youtube in html5 in the opera browser v12.18? It really sucks ...

    Even in other "up-to-date" browsers, html5 sucks. I do not know why, but it's not as smooth as a flashplayer. Maybe it's OK to watch only, but if you switch the full screen, it's backward, but it's "worse." I do not like changes. Which ones are unnecessary;) Because I really do not know what html5 sooooo is better than flashplayer. It's worse for me, and it's GREAT! :)

    As far as you can understand this. He translated google;)

    So if there is a solution, please share it with me on this post. I hope that they did not completely abolish the flashplayer :(

    Tnx

  • Since Flash is being discontinued, maybe it's time to start moving from it.

  • As @leocg notes, after 2020, there will be no Flash. Between now and then, ever more websites will be discontinuing its usage. Whether you or I would prefer to keep Flash over HTML5 is irrelevant, since the path to Flash's extinction is locked in, both by those who make it and those who have used it in their designs. Browser makers are increasingly hard-pressed to justify including provision for a vanishing Flash in their designs. And none of that considers the continual recurring major, real-world security issues involved with Flash since its inception...

  • Yes, Flash has finally had its day. It will be remembered as being a major part of the web's history, with most multimedia sites on the web using it. Sites like YouTube depended on it completely for their existence for a very long time, but things have now moved on, and even Adobe have recognised that.
    Because of its success and ubiquitousness for so long, Flash was a prime target for exploitation by hackers, and you did get the impression that Adobe were constantly fighting a losing battle to try and keep it secure.
    No doubt the hackers will now move on to other potentially vulnerable web technologies, maybe even HTML5, but they won't find such a soft target as Flash again I suspect!
    As I said HTML5 seems to work fine for me on Opera 12.18, both on Windows XP and on Windows 10.
