    From what I've read Chrome has a Flash player built in. Well I got Iron which is based on Chromium which is based on Chrome, but Flash videos won't show. I can't find a solution on Google so I'm asking you.

    Is it a conflict with the internal adblocker? I've used Iron for over two years & I haven't had any problems with flash videos.

    Asking on the Iron forums for English speakers might help. Don't expect a rapid response though.

    I just went to adobe and installed the Flash Player and it overrode the built-in player and videos work now.

    Actually Google Chrome is based on Chromium, not the other way around. ;)

    Only Google Chrome has bundled flash and PDF viewer. None of the open-source derivatives has had and will not ever have this bundled. You just install the plugin from Adobe site.

    Until Adobe Flash and Foxit PDF SDK go opensource and are licensed in a way compatible with the rest of Chromium code, there will never be such stuff bundled. Google luck with getting Adobe open-sourced. :rolleyes:

    Why does it have to be Adobe and Foxit exclusively?
    No one knows what is going to be developed in the Future.;)

    Yes. I agree.

    Just install the latest flash player. I did that and it went out fine. Iron will warn you if you have outdated flash.
