Changes to Flash Settings in Chrome 62
Posted by Jessica D'Apice on 15 November 2017 12:19 PM
Chrome is making it harder to run Flash. In Chrome 62, you either have to enable or disable Flash completely, or have to allow Flash per website.
 
To enable/disable Flash in Chrome:
  1. Click the menu option in the top right corner of the Chrome window (three dots aligned vertically).
  2. In the drop-down, click "Settings."
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Advanced Settings."
  4. Click "Content Settings."
  5. Click "Flash."

Turn "Block sites from running Flash" OFF to ENABLE Flash.

Turn "Block sites from running Flash" ON to DISABLE Flash.

 
To allow Flash for individual websites:
  1. In Chrome's Flash settings, enable "Ask first".
  2. Go to the Flash website.
  3. Click "green lock" icon or "i in circle" icon at the left side of address bar.
  4. In the menu, choose "Always allow on this site" for Flash.
  5. Reload.
If the content contains Flash plugins smaller than 400px x 300px, they will always be blocked. You will need to click the "plugin blocked" icon in top right corner and click "run all plugins this time".
 
*****

Something rather important worth mentioning, all browsers will stop supporting Flash altogether by then end of 2020, as announced by Adobe themselves: https://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2017/07/adobe-flash-update.html 

Flash has long been known for its instability and security issues. With the introduction of HTML5 as a more secure mark-up language for structuring and presenting content on the internet and its subsequent rise in popularity, HTML5 is being chosen over Flash as the preferred content delivery method, and Flash is being phased out.

We highly recommend that you start preparing now. You will need to start re-publishing your courses to HTML5. You have until the end of 2020, but having a head start is better than having to scramble to re-publish all of your courses at the end of 2020. Republishing your courses, depending on your library size, may take time, but it will be well worth it as the movement away from Flash becomes permanent and widespread.
