Installing VLC in Chrome to playback all kinds of video
Just like everybody else I know, I have tons of video in random formats that I can’t seem to get to play back in my web browser. Video LAN offers an amazing video player and its installer includes a chrome extension. This post will cover the basics for installing VLC and testing that it works as a chrome plugin:
- Download VLC
- After the download completes, click the installer.
- Install VLC with all of the extensions / plugins
- From your Chrome web browser, browse to chrome://plugins
- Now, you will see an option, “VLC Web Plugin”. If this line is available, you have successfully installed the VLC player plugin for Chrome.
