I noticed that starting Chrome 62, chrome disables Flash player by default.
I wrote a simple selenium test to visit : https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html and noticed that it does not enable flash player by default. The same test works fine and flash player is enabled in Chrome 61.
Also, another noticeable difference is that I am using chromedriver v2.32 when running tests on Chrome 61 and chromedriver v2.33 when running tests on Chrome 62.
I've tried using the following solutions but none seems to work. I am using Java:
ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions(); options.setExperimentalOption("excludeSwitches", Arrays.asList("disable-component-update")); WebDriver driver= new ChromeDriver(options);
Tried using the flag:
None of them seem to work and flash player is always disabled no matter what flag I use.
