THIS is the same problem that Im having!!!! It started when my Chrome browser all of a sudden changed my bookmarks to an older deleted version. The only way I found to get the newest version was to uninstall Chrome and install Chrome Canary(which I had never heard of)! After that my Direct TV and Vudu will not play. I get the very same thing as SouvanikMax. I tried all the going to advance settings-content,etc. etc. DID not work! I tried the checking to see if Flash is updated. It says Flash is instaled but enabled in Chrome. All I get is the same as decribed above. D not know what else to do! Help! Help! Help! Please! I use my laptop for a TV and my only peice from a loud disfunctional household. I need this fixed!
What operating system, including version, is this on?
Chrome Canary is the daily build of Chrome, mainly for developers. It's quite unstable and not recommended for the average user (see https://fossbytes.com/chrome-canary-different-regular-google-chrome-try/ for more information).
If you're having issues with Chrome, you probably should do a complete Chrome uninstallation and re-install the latest version (you'll want to export your settings, or make a backup of your user settings folder before completely uninstalling it.
With that said, the 'enable Flash Player in Chrome' tech notes only apply to the stable release of Chrome. They do not apply to the beta,dev, or canary channel.
Thanks,I will try that,
August 1, 2017, this problem just cropped up for me, nothing so far will fix it. Flash shows as installed and enabled, but when I go to the Install page Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions it shows as disabled, even after both Flash and Chrome are updated.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Please see Enable Flash Player for Google Chrome
The Google support document Adobe Flash isn't working - Chrome Help also contains this, and more information on troubleshooting Flash in Chrome, and is kept updated by Google.
Also, Please try the following:
- launch chrome
- navigate to chrome://flags/#prefer-html-over-flash
- The flag is most likely set to Default
- change the flag to Disabled
- relaunch Chrome
- Does Flash content display now?
For google Chrome you may access the Flash Player Global Settings using link: Adobe - Flash Player : Settings Manager - Global Security Settings panel. You can also get this link when you right-click any flash content and choose "Global Settings" from the context menu. Then follow below steps to add any location to trusted locations for Chrome.
- On the page opened select "Global Security Settings panel" from the left panel.
- To add any file/folder click on Edit location -> Add location
- Paste the path to the file/folder in the input box below "Trust this location:"
- To delete any location select that location from the menu and choose "delete location" and then confirm
Thanks. Doubt that would have worked, however I did get it working using extreme measures. I ran Malwarebytes and cleared out 176 threats, updated Chrome, rebooted, also ran Avast antivirus, all to no avail. I tried going back to a Win 7 restore point about five days, but that didn't work. I then tried booting to a different drive created from a Macrium Reflex image made a week or so ago. That worked, so I cloned that drive back to the 1st boot drive. That also worked. The Flash screen indicating right click to run Flash shows briefly, which I don't remember seeing before, but at least it works. This is a mathematics theorem hosted on Google's cloud which was delisted by Google shortly after I appended an ANOVA showing that H. Clinton did not win the popular vote statistically speaking. Believe me. http://foosresearch.appspot.com. . .
You are my hero!!!! I had been stuck with this problem for months now!!! I made an account, just to be able to tell you thanks!!!
'prefer-html-over-flash'... cannot find this in 'flags' listed. please help. I have the latest chrome installed and keep getting'plugin blocked' also. Can someone provide a solution ? I have already changed setting in Chrome to 'always' run flash and keep getting plugin blocked also for months now. [moderator: deleted personal email as per Email signatures and personal information ]. In the flag menu there is no longer 'adobe flash' option that I can see.
Please do not post the same issue to multiple discussion topics. I have replied to your post at Flash Player is blocked on Chrome
As stated at Flash Player is blocked on Chrome , Google removed the 'prefer-html-over-flash' flag in the latest version of Chrome. See Use or fix Flash audio & video - Computer - Google Chrome Help for assistance. If those recommendations don't work, contact Google for assistance as it's their browser, not Adobe, that is blocking Flash Player.
Locking this discussion topic as the Chrome functionality mentioned here is no longer relevant.
