*After a quick 'yaourt -S chromium'* Looks like it uses the standard mozilla plugin directory.

By the way, it looks like this is version 10.2d161

While chromium might use the mozilla plugin directory, I think Chrome put it in /opt/google/chrome/libflashplayer (at least that is what is appears to be using on my machine), so either they change the plugin from chromium to chrome (very possible since their distribution agreement with Adobe might not cover chromium) or whoever packaged that chromium for Arch might have changed it.

libflashplayer lists the default Flash plugin as a dependancy. So I very much doubt it's Googles own Flash plugin.

At most, it would be a wrapper for Adobe's plugin.

Google Chrome and Chromium are using the ordinary plugin. The "plugin" at /opt/google/chrome/libflashplayer is merely a symlink to the actual plugin.
