ClickToFlash is a highly customizable extension that prevents Safari from launching the Flash plug-in automatically. It replaces every Flash object by an unobtrusive placeholder that can be clicked to load the Flash content, and it can replace many Flash-based media players by Safari's native HTML5 media player.

What's New

Version 2.9.6:
  • Fixed media player CSS for Safari 7.1/8 and the WebKit nightlies

Requirements

  • OS X 10.6 or later
  • Safari 5.1 or later
  • Safari 5.0.6 or later supported on OS X 10.5

Does what is says it'll do - perfectly.

I love that on machines that are getting rather old this will block the Flash ads that bring these machines to their knees.

Updated automatically in Safari. Nonetheless, this is an opportunity to thanks the developer again … this is a GREAT extension.

Why can I not use ClickToFlash on any BBC video any more? It all stays as flash only.

Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone else was experiencing an issue with youtube, where unless you use flash directly, the highest resolution is 720p. It had been working all along until today, and now when i use one of my downloader extensions either in safari or firefox, the highest res for mp4 download has maxed at 720p even if there is larger.

Unfortunately, there are no larger mp4 videos at the moment: YouTube removed them. It may be a temporary situation.

Thanks Marc for confirming there wasn't something wrong with my computer, more then there already is. I can still download up to 720p in mp4. I have an older macbook and it's dying, and unable to buy a new one currently so i use clicktoflash to download videos from youtube to play on a flash drive connected to a blu-ray player, or stream using dlna from the mac to the players which puts the cpu load on the player so it's easier on the mac. My TVs are 1080p so i like to download the native res if possible. Again Thanks.

This is one of my essential extensions because I love having control over which videos play when. I started using it shortly after the big security concerns, maybe a year ago, and I found it stops many annoying auto run ads as well. Never have I had any troubles with it. Thank you to the makers!

I really like this extension and it does it's job well. To me, its a must have for Safari. I've went to the developer's page and looked through the comments to find out what's different between ClickToFlash and ClickToPlugin. So anybody know what it is? If I missed it somewhere on the site or asked this in the wrong place, I apologize in advance. I just joined MacUpdate a few days ago.

I've wondered why CTF and CTP aren't combined into a single extension, configurable to only provide CTF functionality if desired. Wouldn't that be easier than developing/supporting two extensions?

The author does say to only use one of them. ClickToFlash or ClickToPlugin, otherwise they will interfere with each other.

Not much of an expert - but just thanks - again for letting us flash the trash ... it is a whole new browsing experience without the moving adds.

It doesn't work!!! Some websites still open some pages behind Safari! When we click on a video on some webpages, we see a quick flash on screen and notice another page has opened behind the Safari webpage we are viewing! So ClickToFlash does NOT work for all websites!
