Video attachments and Google Chrome

#1

For those of you running Google Chrome, they just removed the support for Flash. Unfortunately, Discourse tries to download a Flash video player for some type of attachments and this causes Chrome to download a file called “get_player”. We are trying to find a remedy for the issue. Meanwhile, if you get tons of “get_player” file downloads, don’t worry. You can safely delete them all.

Sorry for this nuisance!

If you want to post videos from Google drive, a workaround is to type a space before the link in the post. That prevents Discourse from embedding and instead just shows the link.
