With that little information (and e.g. no version numbers), I can only guess.

My best guess would be that you're on Qt 5.13 and seeing this issue:

Looks like there's a fix in the works for Qt 5.14 - until then, it looks like
you can add 'enable-pepper-testing' to the qt.args setting as a workaround.

I'm not sure about the security implications of that, though (but flash is a
security nightmare either way). You might want to only enable content.plugins
to true for a specific URL pattern rather than globally.
