It seems that NPAPI has been phased out from M42, my NPAPI flash plugin is not working with Chromium.  :/

 

NPAPI Flash is not even showing in chrome:\\plugins as well.  :shifty:

Yup, you're right. But Adobe offers the PPAPI plugin in addition to the NPAPI plugin for download now so Chromium can use it.

Not sure about this, but I think in v41 Chrome now uses DirectWrite for rendering UI text as opposed to GDI in the previous versions.

Yeah, I posted about Chrome switching to DW for GUI as well on few pages back.

Block NPAPI plugins by default

Add --enable-npapi flag in chrome://flags to support re-enable.

To enable NPAPI, while we can:

 

chrome://flags/#enable-npapi
