Chrome version 42.0.2311.90 m blocks VLC, Java, Silverlight, other plugins by default now.Google in the first phase blocked plugins from running in Chrome but
allowed users to re-enable them directly in the browser. This direct option has been removed in phase two.
Chrome users can still override the blocking of plugins in Chrome:
- Type chrome://flags in the browser’s address bar and hit enter.
- Search for chrome://flags/#enable-npapi on the page. Or, load it directly.
- Enable it with a click on the link.
- Restart the browser.
All NPAPI plugins installed in Chrome become available again.
