I have explicitly opted out of the trial:
However about 10% of videos still play in HTML5.
I found this question however that tells you how to do it in firefox and not chrome.

Sometime over this weekend--I think after an update--I started noticing that videos on Youtube in Chrome have spots on them, and that's with both Flash videos and HTML5 videos. This doesn't happen on other video websites, or even in Firefox.
Alright, this is weird. Every time I try to watch live YouTube videos on the YouTube website, I get the "TV static" error screen with the message "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available.
I'm wondering if it is possible to use only html5 on the AOSP browser. I don't like that the flash on it now plays videos more pixelated than normal.If i go and view the same flash video with an only html5/non-flash browser, like chrome, it plays much more clearly. Alternatively I would like to have it switch to the YouTube app like chrome does when you click on a youtube video.
I disabled the following:
Adblock Plus 2.6.4
Bluhell Firewall 2.3.0
Download Youtube Videos as MP4 1.7.25
Ebay & Amazon Search Menu Addon 1.0.5
Video Without Flash 1.4.2
Webmail Ad Blocker 4.25
YouTube ALL HTML5 3.2
YouTube HTML5 Switch v0.1.7
Youtube MP3 Downloader using youtube-mp3.org 0.1
YouTube Unblocker 0.5.4
And still Whenever I hit a Youtube page, and vid attempt
I installed the youtube app (unity-webapps-youtube) from ubuntu software center. But it tells me it cannot play any videos because of a missing flash player. Flash plays fine in either Firefox or Google Chrome but not in the app. Is there any workaround? Something like telling the app to use html5 instead of flash for example?
When I maximize a flash OR HTML5 video, e.g. on youtube, the picture freezes but the video continues to play. I can still hear the sound and even see the mouse cursor switching from normal cursor to hand cursor when I hover over the position where a control button should be but the whole chrome window becomes unresponsive.
The video is played fine if I don't enter fullscreen mode.
I have been unable to hear anything in any html5 player, and it started today. My sound card works fine, and it even says that Youtube or some other HTML5 player is playing audio, but I cannot hear it. I've tried clearing the cache, restarting Chrome, restarting the computer, running updates, and re-installing Chrome. I also get the same result when I try this with Chromium. Any ideas?
