Silverlight disabled in Chrome 42 by default

Chrome v42 disables NPAPI plugins by default which includes Silverlight. The new webcast portal uses Silverlight as the media player for receiving the broadcast. Looks we'll be using Firefox now.

That can work short-term, but eventually Chrome will remove the NPAPI. Why not just use another browser now? They're plentiful. You'll have to use a different one eventually.

Agree and lets hope Microsoft updates Silverlight to use something other that the NPAPI

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) is a cross-platform plugin architecture used by many web browsers.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Microsoft Silverlight is an application framework for writing and running rich Internet applications, similar to Adobe Flash.
