How to Enable Flash for Chrome 

Step 1:

In the address bar slightly to the left of the URL, you will see a picture of a lock icon. Click on the "Lock Icon".

Step 2:

After clicking on the "Lock Icon" a small window pops up with various options. In this window, you will see the word "Flash" with a drop-down box to the right of it. This drop-down box has 3 options which are Ask, Allow, and Block.  Set the Flash drop-down box to "Allow". If you click the "Lock Icon" and do not see the word "Flash" and the drop-down box next to it is not there then see Step 4 below for further instructions.

Step 3:

After selecting the "Allow" option next to the word "Flash" close the window and go back to your course and relaunch it.

Step 4:

When you click the "Lock Icon" and the small window pops up if you do not see the "Flash Option" to allow Flash then click the "Site Settings" button. After clicking this button you will be taken to the browser settings page. You will see and area in the middle of the page that says "Permissions" and you will notice several different permissions and to the right of these permissions the ability to set them to Ask, Allow and Block. Locate the "Flash" permission which has a puzzle piece to the left of it and set this permission to "Allow".  Then exit the browser settings by clicking the "X" next to the tab at the top of the labeled "Settings". Go back to your course and relaunch it and now it should play great.

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.
