Due to some changes, it seems that chrome won't allow flash on regular http sites, but only on https, where you will be asked to allow the flash to be played.

If on https, Click "green lock" icon or "i in circle" icon at the left side of address bar. In the menu, choose "Always allow on this site" for Flash.

Do you have an alternative option to flash files? Is this content you are creating?

Changes to chrome, this is a "workaround" that will require the least changes.
