Mine is /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so (and yes, I'm running a 64 bit system). I would think yours should be /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so.
forgot to say: I installed via the autoplus utility for codecs and other nice-to-have things.
I used the adobe repository:
rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe...0-1.noarch.rpm
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper

Whatever you did to install the /opt/google/chrome/libgcflashplayer.so plugin, undo it. You have two competing flashplayer plugins in google-chrome.
Location: /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so <== this is the correct location. /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so is a symlink to the real binary reported.
I never installed the extra flush plugin in chrome. It must have been there by default. Disabling either one of the two doesn't help. Removing the chrome one gives upon loading a page with flash:

As to the nspluginwrapper I don't know why it is there. I just followed instructions online, having no idea what I was doing. It did work without problems for months though. Also I tried reversing the process some time ago and just installing the flash-plugin package and it broke flush in both browsers as well (reinstalliing the nspluginwrapper then re-enabled flash playback).
