I'm running Google Chrome on Ubuntu Linux, and Adobe is no longer supporting it's flash player for this configuration. In fact, Adobe dropped all it's support for any flavours of Linux.
So I'm left with an flash player that randomly crashes and has severe bugs (inverted blue and red channel is quite annoying). Adobe has state that those problems will never be fixed. I'm that close from uninstalling the flash player. But then, if I do that, I won't be able to follow some of my favourite Youtube channels.
I actually registered to this group to find a solution to force HTML5 video for all Youtube videos. I was unpleasantly surprised to find out that you guys at Youtube have the technology to support me, but won't simply because you can't do in-video ads in HTML5.
I do understand that it costs some money to run Youtube and that ads are supporting it. However, I feel like it's a minor issue that can be ignored while the in-video ads are implemented for HTML5.
In the meantime, a simple AdSense bar should suffice, shouldn't it? This could be a good compromise that would make everybody happy.
Can you forward this complaint to the appropriate management people for me?
