  • The Adobe Flash Player or an HTML5 supported browser is required for video playback.

    I can't seem to be able to view the videos for hero skills from within the game's Learn Tab browser.

    I can view them just fine if I use my good old Google Chrome and directly access the Heropedia, but I can't do that from inside the game. I have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed.

    I didn't see any other threads created about this, so is the problem on my end or does the Valve browser not support video playback ?

      Yep getting the same issue as well, works fine when it goes in to the overlay browser but just comes up with the error listed above if I try do it straight from the heropedia in game.

        I'm getting this error too.

          Getting this as well, and only thread I found related to the problem. Tried to update flash through the steam browser but that didn't work out, doesn't even download properly from what I can tell.

            Chrome uses its own flash player maintained by google. I'd check your flash installation and maybe uninstall/reinstall.

            Also, check in a browser such as internet explorer to see if it can play flash videos.

              This is fixed for me now after the undying patch. I used chrome to do a non-internet explorer flash installation but I swear that didn't work. Then the game updated and now it's all good!

                had this problem but updated my flash and worked fine after that

                  Obviously game uses IE engine. Flash-player is not installed for this browser, or u just have prohibited usage of plugins in it.

                    same here and that is one more reason not to use web-based pages ingame.


                    • #11
                      Has anybody figured out a fix to this? I still can't view the flash videos in DotA 2. I use google chrome, but flash is updated for both chrome and ie.

                        Try installing Adobe Flash Player for "other browsers". You'll need to restart Steam once done.

                          So, install it again even though I use IE and intalled it for that?
