What version of chromium have you installed?
From the 'triple line' menu button, top right,
"Version 28.0.1500.52 Ubuntu 12.04 (28.0.1500.52-0ubuntu1.12.04.2)"
I think I said I was running Ubuntu 12.10? 12.04 it would appear, sorry. I can't see where (In Ubuntu) I can get a simple statement of which version I'm actually running. Of course I did know which version it was when I installed it, but that was a while ago now.
If I go to the same Chromium menu again and choose
scroll down to the bottom of that screen, click 'show advanced settings'
More options appear, of which the first is
Under that heading, click the 'content settings' button
In the 'Content settings' dialogue screen scroll down to
Click 'Disable individual plugins'
This brings up the list of installed Plugins, along with their currently enabled or disabled status. Among them is
Adobe Flash Player - Version: 11.2 r202
Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
Name: Shockwave Flash
Version: 11.2 r202
-which is enabled. But Flash content does not work. It's not just Chromium by the way, Flash doesn't work for me in Firefox either. Between the two my preference is for Chromium, so I'm happy to focus on a walkthrough / assistance for getting it to work in Chromium only.
Incidentally I have also tried Google Chrome which allegedly has built-in Flash support. That has never worked for me either.
