Hi experts.

Flash video content from youtube is sometimes offered as native HTML5 video content. Since this does not work as expected in our environment, I would like to disable HTML5 video playback completely, so that only flash is offered.

I already found a way using the extension "chromeactions" but since I need to deploy this, I wonder if there's an even easier way that you folks might know.

Browser: chrome (v32), OS: Server 2008 R2 as remoteapp, BUT that does not really matter.

If anyone is interested: a simple workaround is to rename the ffmpegsumo.dll in the application directory of chrome. Without it, adobe flash is used, when installed.
I deployed a task that searches for that thing on daily in case updates resurrect it (what they'll certainly try).
