I have been having this issue for some time on my laptop and it is irritating because I was able to get flashplayer to work on my workstation. Of course, I did not write notes on how I did that some time ago. My Fedora is 26, x86_64.

If you are having this issue on Fedora spins, this is how I fixed the problem. Install from adobe of fedy flashplayer plugins for chromium. The installation is suppose to create all symbolic links that is needed, but I have found with Fedora, they are not created, so you have to create them manually. I have two symbolic links, not sure which one is really needed, because when I got flashplayer to play the mp4 embedded files, I was good.

Open a terminal

>cd /usr/lib64/chromium-browser
>ls -l PepperFlash
>ls -l plugins

If you see -> /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/ in both directories, then you are good.

if not, the create the directories

>mkdir PepperFlash
>mkdir plugins
>ln -s /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/


ln -s /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/ /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/plugins/

Now try the browser with the mp4 file. I hope this helps.
