What you get instead is the following error message: “Sorry the video is no longer available”. Of course the video is still available but what maybe you don’t know is that you are just experiencing a Macromedia flash player incompatibility with your Google Chrome. To check this theory out  it is just sufficent to open you Internet Explorer or Firefox browser and try to watch the video. If you can do it, it means that… your flash player needs to be updated.  Here is the trick to fix it:

    Hello Jim,
    Did you try to update your Chrome to the latest version?
    If it still doesn’t work, download Flash player XPI here: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/xpi/current/flashplayer-win.xpi

    After that, add zip to the downloaded file (flashplayer-win.xpi.zip), extract the content of the .zip file to:
    C:\Documents and Settings\user \Local Settings\Application Data \Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins.

    Make sure to change “user” in the location I gave you above with your logon username. Close and restart Chrome.
