  • (2021-03-11) shalom ost: לא הבנתי איך משתמשים בזה זה לא מופיע לי אופציה לצפיה ישירה....
  • (2021-02-07) rahel abergel: איך בכלל מורידים את זה????????????? נישמח לקבל תשובה למייל [email protected]‬ תודה רבה שבוע טובבבבבבבב!
  • (2020-12-28) Brian Severinsen: This extension works great. It makes it much easier to watch video attachments in GMAIL. One of the things I would like to see is support for .wmv file formats.
  • (2020-12-11) Jack Singh: I cannot believe there are only 10,000+ users of this extension. Perhaps the '+' means there thousands of thousands more! :). Great extension. I also was going to switch chrome gmail to an email app with a video player until I installed this extension. Thank you! FYI, auto play is not important to me.
  • (2020-10-28) PetrZ: 100% working, thanx 2
  • (2020-10-22) נתנאל דיכובסקי: לא הבנתי אחרי שהתקנתי את זה זה לא עובד
  • (2020-10-09) Peter Underwood: It may be great for video, but audio is another matter. Like all other Chrome extensions that claim to play WAV files, it fails to play attached wav voicemails. Tracked the problem to the fact that these use a codec not installed in Chrome. So still having to download the attached file which then plays with native codecs/apps in Windows 10. Sad.
  • (2020-09-30) CURTA O PRAZER: muito bom ! facilita a vida né?
  • (2020-09-27) Jacqueline La Rocque: Works great - just need to add a note to your instructions to let people know they have to close and reopen their browser to get it to work. Best and easiest add on to Chrome I've ever used - well done!
  • (2020-08-31) e.g. Mμ: Thank goodness for this kind programer to do what GMAIL was hiding from for the last few years. They should give this person a portion of their security budget for all the folks who WONT be infecting their lives/the system with malware add-ons now that they dont have to download attachments.
  • (2020-07-03) Justin Maghen: Great concept and idea, but it doesn't work for me either. I receive mp4 files in gmail and when I open the email and click the play button, a window does open up and thinks like it is loading for about 3-5 seconds and then does nothing. Says video is 0 seconds and just a black screen. I know it is not the video since when I load it on gmail on the phone, it play the same video without an issue. By the way, I have tried more than 1 MP4 videos and none of them work. Hope you can get this fixed :/
  • (2020-06-28) Richard: Works like a charm! Very grateful for this. Windows 10 v2004.
  • (2020-04-07) miltonind: works great...why didn't gmail just add it..i guess it is because MP4 is used so much by Apple..not sure. Thanks for doing it. Are there any privacy concerns by adding this app. How does the author make money for doing this?
  • (2020-03-28) Ralph Runge: Can finally open video links in gmail on Win 10! thank you so much
  • (2020-01-24) Anthony Warren: Thank you Codemeteor. One less major frustration with Chromeos!
  • (2019-12-04) Jessie: Thank you, this mod is exactly what I was after. I do not know why Google doesn't fix the email video player but at least we have awesome developers like you to save the day.
  • (2019-10-06) נחמן אלעזר שורץ: דפוק!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2019-09-22) Alvin Parra: Yikes... so simple. I needed to refresh and the icon to watch video appeared as a 3rd option. So easy. Google should hire you.
  • (2019-08-13) Martin Šalgovič: Does what it says, great job!
  • (2019-08-02) שלמה פרוש: Great works !! Only one thing there is that problem that you can not run it forward manually !!
  • (2019-07-30) james barrett jr: This would have received 5 stars; however -- within the past week or two the function ceased to work. The play video button no longer shows on my video file attachments within gmail.
  • (2019-07-19) Rick W.: It doesn't work for mp4 videos on my Windows 10 PC.
  • (2019-07-10) Catalin Rotariu: Strange thing is that I cannot find this extension by normal means. I found it in a forum. And I always forget where can I get it.
  • (2019-07-01) LV Mobile: Works great. Spent hours looking for a workaround. Thank you!!!
  • (2019-03-31) Rick Lugg: Many thanks for providing this extension. Shame that GMail team could not manage to do this in some manner. I tried replying on the gmail help forum, but the Add Reply was greyed out.
  • (2019-03-08) Wow - Thanks! The missing functionality was much more of a pain on Chromebook where one had to click around for the download.... Windows at least showed a pop up at the bottom after download...
  • (2019-01-14) Don Cullen: Works good! Missing feature in gmail was the ability to immediately play video attachments without having to download, open the file, then hit play. This plugin eliminated two steps, still have to hit play as soon as it opens within gmail. But hey, still a good plugin!
  • (2019-01-13) Yves Winand: Fonctionne parfaitement pour les MP4 sur mon portable Dell !... MERCI beaucoup
  • (2019-01-04) Marc Fares: Simple extension to address missing video playback functionality that Google disabled from Gmail. Thank you!
  • (2018-12-28) David Virebayre: Marche parfaitement. Si cela pouvait également permettre d'écouter les fichiers .wav, ce serait parfait.
  • (2018-11-18) Virginie Vacher: At last I can watch videos without having to download them. Thank you so much!
  • (2018-11-16) Juan Maltes: great extension, works great on chrome for Mac
  • (2018-11-13) Pedro Vilanova: Many thanks Tim. You solved a nasty problem that GMail did not! Only minor issue I found is that it is not possible to skip portions of a video. It would be useful in long videos to jump to final seconds. Regards Peter
  • (2018-11-08) Todd Epps: Works great on a Mac running chrome. Thank you so much!
  • (2018-11-08) Jason Bidwell: Was about to ditch chrome...thanks!
  • (2018-10-20) Ashwin: Works perfectly so far! Only reason I am still using Gmail.

  • (2019-11-17, v:2019.1.0) Mimi Sidwell: Gmail Mod causing slow-down of Gmail
    I noticed since I installed Gmail Mod that Gmail has slowed down to a snail's pace. When composing emails there is a 30+ sec. delay in text actually showing. Clicking on anything is also delayed. I disabled the Gmail Mod app, and now Gmail is working normally again. Are you aware of this issue? I'd like to be able to use the Mod app as it allows me to watch attached videos.
  • (2019-10-22, v:2019.1.0) Stuart Crowley: Play video from inbox
    It does not seem to be possible to play the video from the attachment icon in the inbox. You have to actually open the email. Is this something you could add?
  • (2019-08-03, v:2019.1.0) james barrett jr: Response to your follow-up re: extensions no longer working
    Dear Codemeteor, Thanks for the response and explanation.. The two big killers that come to mind right now are .mov and .3gp.. Thanks very much. I will add something to my browser or whatever codec 'decoder' needed because this function is important to me.. Thanks in advance, James
  • (2019-06-14, v:1.0.2) Foort C.J. Otte: extensie in chrome voor movie ontvangen via gmail
    Beste Tim, Kan het zijn dat je extensie nadat deze is toegevoegd automatisch wordt verwijderd door chrome bij het afsluiten van chrome. Ik krijg hem namelijk niet meer aan de praat en de reactie van google is dat de ontwikkelaar maar contact op moet nemen om zijn extensie goedgekeurd te krijgen voor in de web store. Ben jij bekend met zo'n reactie? vr.gr. foort
  • (2019-03-28, v:1.0.2) Geoffrey Bourne: Sorry.
    I jumped the gun. The view video IS NOW WORKING. Sorry about that.
  • (2019-03-28, v:1.0.2) Geoffrey Bourne: Player not now working
    I downloaded the 'play video' loader which allowed me to view my MP4 clips. In the last two days. (Since 27-3-2019) the View arrow has got smaller and the clip will not now play and I have to download. HAS GOOGLE DONE SOMETHING to the attachment to stop me from viewing the clip.
  • (2019-02-04, v:1.0.2) Joe Allen: Gmail desktop app
    This works great in a gmail session in full chrome browser, but doesn't show up in the desktop gmail app. It might be a completely different architecture, but they do offer add-ons for the desktop app so there might be a way to do it. I became aware of the issue due to a client that uses the desktop gmail app and am still looking for a smooth workaround for him. Thanks for picking up Google's slack!
  • (2019-01-14, v:1.0.2) Don Cullen: Autoplay on clicking play
    Currently, if I click play in the attachment, it opens the video, but video doesn't play upon loading. Would be good if it auto plays upon loading. Awesome plugin, glad you developed it, helps to fill in the void since fixing this issue isn't one of Google's priorities for the time being. Thanks much for doing this!
  • (2018-12-28, v:1.0.2) David Virebayre: Sound files
    Sometimes I get a voicemail file by email. It usually is a .wav file, and like video files, gmail can't play it. Would you consider adding support for sound files as well ? Your extension works so well for video files ! Thanks a lot.
