How to find correct Active X control for Adobe Shockwave

I have win 7, 64 bit.  I use Chrome and Firefox.  I have downloaded
the current 64 bit versions of Adobe Shockwave player for both 64
bit browsers. There is no sound on Chrome and very low volume on
Firefox (it was fine there for awhile, but now has diminished.)  (and yes,
all volume controls have been carefully checked.)  The problem I’m
facing now is that I want to play flv videos I have, but both my flv
players give the message that I need active X control.
The Adobe download site has active X available for specific browsers,
which I now have. Is there a non browser 64 bit version of Active X?

That's odd because Firefox and Chrome will not run ActiveX components.  Only Internet Explorer will.  In addition, Chrome has Adobe Flash Player built-in.  http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/flash-player-google-chrome.html

Also, there are no 'official' release 64-bit versions of Firefox or Chrome.  There are beta versions of Firefox and Linux builds of Chrome.  But all the 'normal' installs are 32-bit.

On the Adobe download site was a link for Internet Explorer.  There
was another link for “other browsers”.  I assumed that it would
Update the other browsers.  I downloaded two other versions
of  Flash Player, but I still get the same message.  It looks like my
64 bit versions were “unofficial”.  
64 bit Windows seems be causing a lot of grief.  I think I’ll remove it
and install the 32 bit version
