No... there's no 32bit chrome any more, and chromium(or any other browser) will use the same flashplayer .. so if you wanna solve this you're gonna have to answer my questions I'm afraid.

Huh yeah, found that out last night Mark when I tried to load Chromium! I remembered from a post a few months ago on here you mentioned that Chromium has its own built in flash.

Much appreciated Mark as I'm a big you tube user- they have so many vintage tv shows and cool docus on there. I hadn't seen Buster Crabbe's Flash Gordon since I was a child in the 1970s- I forgot he went about in tiny shorts lol.

When men were men :)

[EDIT]

And shorts were in danger of proving it.

 ;D I get ya Mark LOL. What makes me laugh is the fact that back then the filming people were told that Princess Aura's dress was too provocative so they had to make it less revealing, but nobody seems to have said anything about a topless  Buster Crabbe in tight shorts shoveling coal into a furnace, sweatiing heavily and getting whipped as he shovelled LOL!
