    Not sure if these would work for other flash movie sites, but there are add-ons for switching YouTube content to HTML5. You'll need to experiment with them to see if any meet your needs.

    You might try Shumway https://github.com/mozilla/shumway/#readme

    I've been testing it out on YouTube. With Flash disabled or not installed it won't play unless the video is HTML5 capable. If it's flash only you will get this:

    If flash is installed or enabled you can click a small Shumway button in the lower right to play:

    Playing is not automatic with Flash. It is with HTML5.
