✔ Best Answer
Chrome blocking Flash is now the default behaviour, as it's being phased out because it's a major security risk. You have to choose "Run this time" for each video you want to play. If you had Windows 7 or later you wouldn't have that problem because they don't need Flash to play video content in the latest versions of Chrome or Firefox.

How to force Flash updates in Chrome:

Please be aware that come 2020, Adobe plans to stop issuing Flash updates anyway.
It will then be effectively dead & redundant - modern web browsers which support HTML5 (and Google Chrome is one of them) do not need Flash to play online video content, provided your running Windows 7 or later.

So if you're running Windows Vista or earlier, you need to upgrade so that you don't need Flash at all.

All of the browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox, etc) have dropped support for Vista so not only will there be no more updates, they will (or already have) become a security risk. It's time to replace the Vista with Win7 or better, or Linux.
