    Recently while watching a movies online on some free movie streaming sites, chrome is asking for flash player. Although as per I know, mac doesn't need any flash player to run video streaming? Any idea about this.

    Hello and welcome.

    Most of the time, if a site prompts to install Flash while using Chrome (if it works on other Flash sites), is because it is actually a harmful site with a virus/malware/phishing/etc. download of a fake version of Flash.

    Which site(s) in particular?
