Flash in Google Chrome

I have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed, but after a recent update, it stopped working. I get a black box and no video loads. The videos, whether embedded or at youtube, work in both Chromium and Firefox.

The threads on the problem with libflashplayer.so focus on 64 bit. I have 32 bit, so I am not sure if that makes a difference. I put a copy of libflashplayer in every directory I could find, including creating a plugins directory. Some of those threads go way back.

Is there any new info?
