See How do I attache a screenshot for information on taking and posting screenshot.
I am having the same issue with Flash Player 23 and Chrome.
Keep getting the same error message: "Couldn't Load Plugin"
I am using Windows 7.
Note: I am able to play videos on Internet Explorer. They will not play on Google Chrome. (I use Google Chrome.)
I have followed your advice from this forum and nothing seems to work:
I have enabled Adobe Shockwave Flash 23 and checked the box: Always allowed to run.
I have removed and reinstalled Google Chrome.
Nothing seems to work.
Here are my screen shots including the error message I see on many websites & videos:

Please don't post the same issue to multiple topics. i see your topic at Chrome & Flash Player 23 "Couldn't Load Plugin" error messages; Videos won't play. . Posting the same thing to multiple topics creates confusion when folks are trying to assist you as they end up assisting you in mulitple locations. While you may not get a reply right away, posting to multiple locations really doesn't help. Since you posted your screenshot here, and not at the other topic, I am locking the other topic.
I apologize. I am new to this forum and was not sure how to post information.
I got an email that stated that my post on this thread was rejected so I started a new thread.
Sorry for the mix up. I will join in this thread.
Do you have any suggestions for correcting my Flash Player 23 issue with Chrome based on the screen shots I have listed?
Thank you in advance.
i'm not sure why your post was rejected as there was nothing wrong with it.
I don't have any suggestions for Chrome at the moment, aside from using a browser other than Chrome. I have escalated the issue and am awaiting a reply.
Please keep me and everyone else updated when you get an answer/solution.
In the meantime, could you please comment on the following ideas for correcting this FlashPlayer issue. Some of these ideas have been discussed on your site:
I just discovered something which may be very important.
I do not have a pepperflash.dll file on my computer
Could this be the cause of my issue with flash player?
Here is my screenshot of this:
Thanks for posting that screenshot. Very helpful. Yes, indeed the pepflashplayer.dll file should be there. That is the Flash Player file for Chrome. Please try the following:
Note: AppData is a hidden directory, if you don't see it see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14201/windows-show-hidden-files to display hidden files/folders.
We have escalated this to Google and your screenshot will be very helpful. I'll forward it to them.
<edited to include link to show hidden files/folders>
I've also been having problems with flash in Chrome since the last update. I've been following this thread and there's a few ongoing at Google as well. I actually have pepperflash.dll in the file location so I thought this information might be helpful. Thanks.
Google saves Flash Player to two different locations. The location you posted, in Program Files, and the User's AppData directory. To find out which location Chrome is loading Flash Player from (not sure if you've done this yet or not) launch Chrome and navigate to chrome://plugins. Click +Details in the upper right to display the plugin details (if not already displayed). Look for Flash Player and then the Path entry. Is this the same location as your screenshot (Program Files) or is it the User's AppData directory? If it's not the Program Files directory go to this location and see which files are there.
Worked. Thanks Marla.
We're trying to nail down the issue with Google. Can you tell me what directory Chrome was loading pepflashplayer.dll from on your system? I'm assuming you deleted this directory and then viewed Flash content so that Chrome downloaded the plugin again, yes?
Thank you in advance.
I navigated to the file path from chrome://plugins Adobe Flash Player
pepflashplayer.dll was not there so I deleted the directory (22.214.171.124) and closed Windows Explorer and Chrome.
I then added a step (not sure it did anything), but I first went to chrome://components and updated pepperflash - it still said component not updated. So I navigated to some flash content and it appeared to be working on some stuff. However, I didn't see anything downloading or installing. I then closed Windows Explorer and Chrome again - now everything plays. I cant recall, but I also may have turned off Ad Block Plus at first to see if that was interfering. However, it's turned back on and again, everything plays fine.
pepflashplayer.dll now in the directory. Take a look at the dated modified though, odd.
Thank you very much for the additional information. I will forward it to our contact at Google.
I just followed your instructions and my flash player is working perfectly
The "pepperflashplayer.dll" file is now in the 126.96.36.199 directory folder.
I have the same chrome flash player problem. It was fine and then suddenly I can no longer play candy crush. I can play with IE though.
I do not see and answer to the problem.

Thanks, I will.
We are investigating. Thus far I've been unable to reproduce.
It works in fire fox but not fox.
