How to Enable Flash for Chrome

This guide is intended for Chrome version 62.62.0.3202.89 or higher.

Make sure you have the latest version of Chrome installed.

To verify your version of Chrome, type chrome://settings/help into the address bar, and hit enter.

This will pull up the About Chrome page and you can verify your version number.

You must setup both JavaScript and Flash settings for this to work.

Step 3 only pertains to AICC packages, if you don't utilize AICC packages then after Step 2 you should be done.

 

Step 1: Update JavaScript Settings on Chrome

Type the following in the Address bar:

chrome://settings/content/javascript?search=Content+Settings

The JavaScript settings will pull up and there are two settings that need to be addressed.

The first setting needs to be set to Allowed (recommended). If it says Blocked click the slider button on the right to set it to Allowed.

The second setting must have http://www.adobe.com added to it.
You can do this by clicking on ADD, you can then enter in any website address you need.

It’s also recommended that you enter the address for your LMS as well, make sure you use https with your LMS address.

Step 2: Update the Flash Settings in Chrome

Type the following in to the Address bar:

chrome://settings/content/flash?search=Content+Settings

The first setting can be either on or off, turning it on will give a prompt to user to allow Flash to run, turning it off, as shown in the screen shot, will allow the Flash content to automatically play. Either setting should work depending on your preference.

The second setting must have http://www.adobe.com added to it.
You can do this by clicking on ADD, you can enter in any website address you need.

It’s also recommended that you enter the address for your LMS as well, make sure you use https with your LMS address.

Step3: AICC packages

Some AICC packages point to a SWF file directly, as a result Chrome attempts to download the file instead of loading it, to fix this, the AICC package needs a custom HTML page with the Flash file embedded into it.

Once the AICC package has this custom HTML file, you can upload the package, then the URL under the File tab in the LMS can be made to point to that custom HTML file instead of the SWF file. This will prevent Chrome automatically downloading the SWF file and load it in the browser instead.
