While using xat on some modern browsers, you will be redirected to this page in the event that the Adobe Flash Player plug-in fails to load.

To fix this issue, you must allow the Adobe Flash Player plug-in to be always allowed to run on xat.com. See below for specific information for your browser.

Remember, once you have done the instructions below, you need to restart your browser by closing it and opening it back. Once done, this issue should be fixed.

Google Chrome

  • Copy and paste "chrome://settings/content/flash" into the URL bar to bring up the Flash setting.
  • Click the "Add" button right next to "Allow", and add xat by typing "xat.com", "xatech.com" and "util.xat.com" into the text dialog, then click the "Add" button again to save your changes. (see image 1)

The steps above may not be enough for some cases. If you're still having trouble after following these steps and restarting your browser, you may need to disable the "Prefer HTML over Flash" option. To do so, follow the steps below:
