Hi,

I am on accessing the videos from my chromebook and the video wasn't loading.. I hit the switch to flash player to see if that would help, which I didn't think it would.

But now, I can't switch back to the normal player.

Does anyone know how to switch back?

Thanks in advance!

[Solved]

Solved my own issue.

For anyone else having this problem, what I did was:

Inspet the page, go to resources, go to local storage, go to http://buildamodule.com then look at the value associated with the key 'wistia' and at the very end there is a property called 'platform_preference' and it is set to flash.
Just delete the platform_preference property and it's flash value, refresh your page again and you should get the original player again.

@buildamodule.com: You really should make a button or something for that. There may be users not advanced enough to figure this out or to know where to look. I got lucky and was inspired to check the local storage..

One more thing to note is

One more thing to note is that in most cases you should be able to right-click on the video player and select the HTML5 versions.
