More and more of the websites are switching to HTML5 video but there are still some sites that rely on the Adobe Flash Player. Installing and using Adobe Flash Player in Firefox is very easy but in Google Chrome it is a little bit complicated. If you do not know all the steps, then you will end up getting confused and frustrated.
If you are seeing the big black message box that reads – “Adobe Flash Player is not installed or is being blocked”, then you have to first install the Adobe Flash Player and then enable it in Chrome settings. Here is how you have to do this:
- First of all visit https://adobe.com/go/chrome or https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/.
- From the download options choose your operating system version (for example, Windows 8/10) and PPAPI Flash Player type. Then click on the Download button and launch the downloaded setup file. Make sure you allow it to automatically download and install updates in your system to make sure that you always have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.
- After the setup is complete, restart Chrome web browser, type chrome://settings/content/flash in the address bar and enable the option labeled Allow sites to run flash.
- Now the last step is to visit the website on which you want to enable Adobe Flash Player and wait for the webpage to load. When it a fully loaded, click on the site information icon (to the left of the website address in the address bar) and allow to run Flash.
Now every time you visit that website, Adobe Flash Player will be allowed to run. The first three steps are only for the first time setting up the Adobe Flash Player in the Chrome web browser. But the fourth step has to be taken for each and every website that you want the Adobe Flash Player to load.
