How to Running Flash in Chrome for Certain Sites

How to Running Flash in Chrome for Certain Sites
Chrome users often find barriers when accessing certain sites that provide Flash-based content. Google usually blocks for such sites, because they do not like it. The reason is simple: because the flash-based content is usually a very wide range of security, and therefore Google forces its users not to use Flash.

The solution is already presented in HTML 5, where flash-based content is no longer needed. But out there are still many sites that still use flash and do not want to bother themselves to migrate to HTML 5. It would be inconvenient if you're accessing Flash-based sites, but can not do anything. Then how the solution?

Interestingly, if you do a search on Google on how to enable flash in Chrome, you will find many articles that will guide you to download Flash from Adobe site. Another solution typically offered is to type 'chrome: // plugins' in the search field in Chrome. Unfortunately, the two solutions are no longer useful.

Well, here we want to outline the steps to run flash in Chrome. A little complicated, but it is certain that this is the easiest solution.

Checking the Flash settings in Chrome
Type 'Chrome: // flags' in the search field in the Chrome browser. Once a window opens, make sure the setting on Run All Flash content when Flash setting is set to "allow" and Prefer HTML over Flash is on 'default'.

Step 1
Then open another tab in chrome and type 'chrome: // components'. Under Adobe Flash Player options, click the 'check for update' button.

Step 2
The next step is to click on the Chrome menu and go to the Settings menu.

In the Settings menu, sort to the bottom of the page and click on the Show Advanced Settings section. Afterwards short by again to the bottom of the page, then click on the Content Settings menu located under the Privacy menu.

A popup box will open, and do the sorting to the bottom once again until you find a heading that says Flash. Then check the Ask first before allowing sites to run Flash (recommended) option. Additional notes: Check the Block sites from running Flash if you really want to block flash content in Chrome. However, do not check the Allow sites to run Flash unless you have a good reason to do so.

Step 3
Allow Chrome to run Flash on certain sites
To run flash, you should provide a list of specific sites to Chrome, which would tell the browser that the site is a flash-based website or have flash content. This needs to be done because Chrome does not provide the option to do it on every site.

You can register the flash-based site by accessing the button Manage exceptions that are in the Content Settings menu – Flash. Afterwards trying to open flash-based sites, and the easiest way to let flash run on that site is to click on the small icon on the left of the URL in the address bar of the site, and then select the option Always allow on this site that are available when you sort the Flash menu in the icon.

Throughout our experience, browsers like Chrome never ask if their users want to enable flash on certain sites, even though the sites we visit clearly have flash content. We, therefore, chose to enable the 'Always allow on this site' option as described above.
