That's why we have this thing called MAQeia for frequently asked question, and there's one for flash which links to this thread: viewtopic.php?f=36&t=880
Before you waste several hours next time, why not simply ask beforehand ?

If you want a current flash plugin, simply install chrome from the google repos, that way you get automatic updates directly from google including the pepperflash plugin.
The way you did it you won't get any updates - and you had to download the complete chrome package anyway in the process ...

I did install the chrome repo and then installed chrome from there. That was fine until this week when for some reason, videos stopped working. I suspected a chrome update broke it, but I have nothing objective to back that up. I removed and reinstalled every flash-related package I could find after scouring this forum as well as other information from Goggle searches. I couldn't make it work until I ran that script.

Let's just reboot everything all the time.

Abut flash-plugin recently, thit might help if anyone else see this:
If Firefox say you have not latest flash, but you do have latest flash-plugin: uninstall & reinstall

I seems on some systems a reinstall of flash-player-plugin & flash-player-plugin-kde is needed.
(maybe systems that ran mga5 when it was cauldron. Also, this system was updated mga4->cauldron->mga5)

I realised yesterday that Firefox blocks flash.
http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ say i have version 11,2,202,540 installed, BUT
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ say i have version 11.2.202.535 installed. Strange!
.540 is the version of mageia flash packages flash-player-plugin & flash-player-plugin-kde, and latest official today.
I have closed restarted firefox and my system.
AFAIK i have done nothing unusual regarding flash or browsers.
I have chromium-browser installed also if that might interfere.
I uninstall packages flash-player-plugin & flash-player-plugin-kde and restart Firefox, and both checks above say i have no flash.
I install packages flash-player-plugin & flash-player-plugin-kde and restart Firefox, and now both checks above say i have version .540 :)

I note in repos there is now .460 and .540 but not .535, so i guess this system have gotten it in the mga5 cauldron phase?

Strange that different websites got different flash versions run!
I guess that it is installed in at least two places, and earlier only one got updated.

Not sure what you're talking about. .535 is clearly in the repos:

And it's only installed in one place for mozilla-based browsers, that is /usr/lib{64}/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

Sometimes you simply need to wipe out ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/pluginreg.dat which stores the versions of the installed plugins as sort of cache
and in some cases it's not really in sync with the versions of the installed plugins, but it gets recreated on each start of firefox if it's not present.

But after all this does not have anything to do with this topic, which is about chrome/chromium and pepperflash.
