Default youtube doesn't work through chrome?

my youtube isn't working through chrome. i get what looks like a missing puzzle piece icon (like what you'd get if missing flash) & message that says chrome for android does not support this plugin). it worked fine last night. i can still watch youtube through the app. last night i turned off a bunch of syncing options' perhaps i messed something up? or google is trying to get me to watch through apo?

It uses Flash iirc and Chrome doesn't support Flash.

You need to sideload the flash apk file, then use a browser like Boat or Dolphin and it should work without too much hassle.

If you need a link to Flash, let me know.

Same. I figured Google was pretty big on html 5 so flash wasn't an issue.
