Adding Plugins
Posted 2008-09-15 21:22
Is there a way to add plugins, (java, flash, mediaplayer, etc)?

If so, would they be the native plugins (I'm on Linux), or windows plugins?

Flash is straight forward to add; just go to and follow through.  You do have to restart for it to take effect.  Haven't tried any other plugins - note that some of them don't work even with Chrome on Windows, though.

When going to to download flash, the link has you download a .exe installation program. There's no way that I know of to run an exe from the browser. How did you install flash for use by Chromium?

It shows you the resulting .exe file down in the left hand corner; you just click on it to run it.

I have downloaded and run the Flash player 10 beta .exe file in CrossOver Chromium on my 64-bit Ubuntu Hardy setup, but when I attempt to play a YouTube video from Chromium, I get that annoying little message to the effect that I either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player installed, and it is suggested that I download the «latest Flash player». As far as I know, JavaScript is not turned off - in any event it's certainly turned on in Swiftweasel and Firefox, and I've not done anything to turn it off in Chromium (is there any way to check ?) The YouTube video runs as expected in Swiftweasel and Firefox. Any suggestions as to how I can get it to run in Chromium ?...

I've just downloaded CrossOver Chromium onto my Mac Laptop OSx10.4. You do indeed get the exe file showing in a tab at the bottom of the Chrome window. Clicking on it brings up a dialogue telling me "The following applications must be quit for the install to take place: Chrome" with buttons "Try again/cancel". Clicked on "try again" for the hell of it and nothing happened. All predictable but fun to do anyway for the hell of it. It's OK, I'm leaving this comment for info for others.., for now I'm happy myself that I can at least see whether my web page designs hang together for the 2% of visitors to my web site using this browser. 2%!!!!... already!!! Think Chrome might have legs. Cool - Open Source rules OK. Keep up the good work. 😏
