Since I upgraded to Google Chrome 35 it can no longer play protected flash content. According to OMG! Ubuntu! the support for NPAPI was dropped so that the adobe flash plugin can't be loaded anymore.

Is there any other way to play protected flash content besides

  • Using Firefox
  • Rolling back Google Chrome to version 34
  • Pray for an update from adobe?
  • I don't know if it works, try this askubuntu.com/questions/424322/… – kenn May 25 '14 at 20:28
  • See here. However, since you are on Google Chrome (not Chromium), you should already have Pepper Flash built in, and so should be able to play Flash content. – saiarcot895 May 25 '14 at 20:54
  • Playing flash content is not the problem. Pepper flash has always worked fine but it can't play protected content. See Adobe Access for DRM in flash. – MeinAccount May 26 '14 at 17:52

To keep Chrome functioning, please downgrade your Google Chrome to 34.
You can download the deb file.
Then use synaptic package manager or use the commandline to lock upgrades for google-chrome-stable package.
Chrome 34 doesn't have any glaring bugs, so you can use it safely for the next 3 months.
I am hoping by that time some patch will be added.
