I am been asked to get embedded WMV files to work in Google Chrome and the Google Support pages suggest using this extension to fix the problem - Interoperability Bridges and Labs Center. I've tried the extension and it does fix our problem but my next issue is how do I deploy an extension site-wide that isn't in the Chrome Web Store?
I've had Chrome GPOs setup and working for a while now and whilst I can get extensions that are in the Chrome Web Store to install for all users, I cannot figure out how to deploy extensions that are stored locally on our Servers.
I've created this directory:
In that location are:
"name": "Windows Media Player HTML5 Extension for Chrome",
In the Google GPOs I have enabled this setting:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<gupdate xmlns=''file:///P:/ChromeExtensions/' protocol='2.0'>
<updatecheck codebase='file:///P:/ChromeExtensions/ChromeWMV.crx' version='1.0' />
- Configure the list of force-installed extensions
Done a gpupdate /force on the Server and a PC, restarted it and it doesn't work.
Can anyone see what I am doing wrong? Or know of an easier solution? Converting the WMV files and editing 100s of html pages is a last resort solution.
