VLC Plugin in Chrome App Player blocked

I'm trying to use some HTML in a presentation which loads a VLC plugin - it works fine in preview, but on the chrome app the plugin appears to be blocked (jigsaw piece on grey screen) I have set the VLC plugin to never be blocked by chrome, but the rise app doesn't appear to use these settings - any ideas?

James,

How different is the HTML you're using to the one that is mentioned in here?  The one I linked to refers to VLC in the HTML and it is working in that thread.

Thanks.

Hi Neal,
That's where I got the code from - it's identical and as I say works fine in preview and any place you can unblock the plugin, but not in the chrome app - as there is nowhere to enable the plugin...

James,

Are you using a Chromebox, or a different operating system with the Chrome App Player?

What if we are using a chromebox? Will this work?

Baywater,

Unfortunately we never tested this scenario with the Chromebox, but if you do get it working, please let us know!

Are you able to Preview the Presentation from the Display?  Its possible that using this method will allow you to unblock the plugin.

Thanks.

Works fine in normal chrome on the display - it's just the player (which I obviously have no control over going to different pages) chrome seems to have a different set of settings for chrome apps for plugins

zep,

To my knowledge, Chrome App Player should use the same settings as Chrome.
