    In what circumstances does Chrome use system flash vs pepperflash?

      We are seeing some cases on Windows machines where users have an outdated version of system flash installed, and Chrome defaults to using that over Pepperflash. These are for new Windows profiles, and when you go to chrome://components its still 0.0.0.0 for Adobe Flash (Chrome version 57) and users have a banner saying 'Flash is outdated and blocked'.

       

      I am not clear why Chrome would ever default to system flash, especially an older version? If users click on the component update button for flash, the correct Pepperflash version is installed and the problems go away.
