Have you encountered the YouTube 'Missing Plug-in' problem while using Chrome to watch YouTube video? This article will show some easy ways to fix this problem and keep from happening in the future.

Part 1. Correct Chrome youtube Missing Plugin without Installing Anything

As you may know, YouTube uses Adobe Flash Player to stream videos to you. That's why you need Adobe Flash Player plugin to see YouTube video. Although Flash will probably replace by HTML5, it's not the time now. Sometimes, YouTube 'Missing Plugin' problem happens only because the Adobe Flash Player crashes. Therefore, just close it and refresh the page to have a try before reinstalling Adobe Flash Player, restarting Chrome, clearing Chrome history or rebooting your computer.

  • 1. Go to Tools > Task Manger by clicking the button in the top most right corner, or Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut.
  • 2. Locate the "Plug-in: Shockwave Flash" and click END process.
  • 3. Refresh the page. Press F5 and it works.
