I visited a streaming site in TorBrowser, but it said it needed a plugin to stream videos. I've already installed the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, but it still won't stream videos or play Flash games. What can I do to make streaming video work in TorBrowser?
Plugins like Adobe Flash and Java are disabled by default in TorBrowser. This is due to the fact that they are outside of Tor developers' control, and contain known problems which can be used to coerce your real IP address from your browser.
If you still want to use these plugins, you can visit
about:addons, click the Plugins tab, and change "Never Activate" to "Ask to Activate" next to the plugin you want to run. This will cause TorBrowser to prompt you each time a website requests to run a plugin. If you don't want this prompt, change the dropdown to "Always Activate" - but be aware that this will open up the possibility of your real IP leaking, compromising your anonymity and rendering TorBrowser useless. This is the least secure option and I would highly recommend against it if you are serious about using Tor properly.
