Hi, I'm using Iron 27. I don't want to use any newer version. I have my reasons for that.
So, Iron 27 worked great for me till now.
Now, whenever I watch a video on YT, I can only watch 360p. I heard that this is because internal Flash from this version of Iron is bad, and I am not able to disable internal flash-plugin. When I go to plugins I can't see any plugin called flash. So how do I disable internal flash plugin so I can use external Flash latest version?

I disabled HTML5 which is what caused problems, via Youtube Center extension. Now it's working great. :ironvschrome

The embedded Flash is known as Pepper Flash (via PPAPI), not available in Chromium and therefore Iron. There are ways to load it, but it's probably more complicated than you'd like.

The version of Flash you are using is the external Chromium download available from Adobe (via NPAPI). If you disable it in Iron you won't have Flash available in Iron. :p

Probably the easiest way to fix your issue is to install YouTube Centre. Their download page has an extension for Chrome and Opera 15. If you want the 'download' functionality, it's safe to install from the Opera site, but requires you force Iron to install the extension (drag the extension into the Tools --> Extensions page).

Your problem with YouTube is probably that it's defaulting to HTML5 for you for whatever reason. You can find out by right clicking the player window. YouTube Center allows you to force videos to use the Flash player.

This has happened to me at least 50% of the time in SRWare Iron 32-bit v38 and now on v39.

Like many I have experienced poor performance with YouTube videos recently.
Videos played at anything above very basic (240p) resolutions now appear to overload my CPU and cause stuttering playback.
Previously I could play videos at 360p and most 720p resolutions without issues.

Older CPU's and basic video (GPU) hardware appear to have problems processing the new HTML5 video stream.
If this is the cause of your issues then reverting back to the old Flashplayer video mode can beneficial.

There is an extension for this - Disable Youtube HTML5 Player

This works with both the NPAPI extension on SR Iron and PPAPI extension on Google Chrome.

Same here with ALL versions of Iron.

I've got:
AMD FX 8350 - 8 cores, 4.00 GHz, 8 Mo
Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 with Boost - 3 Go

Less than 50% of activity with the videos. And even just on the CPU (hardware acceleration disabled).
