you can't - flash format is not supported.

So there's a way to enable flash, and it is a bit convoluted using the Web Render TOP, windows only. You will need to use the python methods of the Web Render TOP to interact with the file.

You can use The PepperFlash plugin that come with Chrome is propriety software from Adobe, and is not available in Chromium which is open source. However, you can download the plugin directly and enable it in the Web Render TOP.

Go to
https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/
and install Adobe Flash Player for your system. After install, you should find a file in
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer64_23_0_0_207.dll
or something similar. Note that you need the 64-bit version

In your Web Render TOP, on the options line, put in:

--ppapi-flash-path="C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer64_23_0_0_207.dll" --ppapi-flash-version=23.0.0.207

Note that you do need to specify the flash version directly, it is part of the dll name.

Alternatively, if you are already running 64-bit chrome (default install is 32-bit), you can link to that dll instead, probably under:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash\23.0.0.207\pepflashplayer.dll

Hopefully this works for you!
