  • (2022-05-18) Mani: i think need some option like change speed video and better ui design
  • (2022-02-17) Kenny Shin: What's so special? Chrome can already play mp4 files without this extension. I was hoping for more control or configuration of video I'm playing... not just play the video, just like chrome already does. you can adjust the speed, just like chrome already does. was hoping for color, brightness, zoom, things like that....
  • (2021-12-17) Paweł Szturm: Simple player for for everyday use. It also works fine with subtitles extensions.
  • (2021-08-23) Archie Scott: This extension has the ability to play a .mp4 in your browser (windows 10 Chrome) Whats so exciting, well playing in your browser means you can access "LIVE CAPTIONS" meaning that the audio self translates to text. At present time, it is only able to display English audio, as english text... but its a start. To turn on live captions, read this instruction. Use Live Caption in Chrome On your computer, open Chrome . At the top right, click More. Settings. At the bottom of the Settings page, click Advanced. Under “Accessibility,” turn on Live Caption. No more hunting for captions, synching them.. just enjoy. Thank you, from everyone who needs captions to enjoy.
  • (2021-06-24) I know: искал то, что будет стакаться с video speed control и это расширение вполне управляемо, на сколько мне нужно шагов замедления/ускорения, НО... отвратительный выбор видео+бывает сбивается тайминг+не рабочий плейлист, если выбрано не одно видео (через контрл)+ картинка бесячая и не понятно, ты уже загрузил видео или нет. 3 только за реализацию локал хтмл5 плеера
  • (2021-04-10) ESTELITO JR. R. MEDALLADA: Works as intended.
  • (2021-02-17) John Navas: PRO: Works nicely on some video files. CON: Does not play H.265 HEVC (on my Acer Chromebook 15).
  • (2021-02-02) Shy Vaporeon: I needed something that works with my video speed up add-on and this is just what i have been looking for, thanks so much.

  • (2020-12-16) Cheung Tyrone: It does the job. I was using jumpcutter to skip the silent parts in videos it but I only want to enable it for local files as otherwise it applies to all that I watch in the browser. I cannot access the built-in page to play the local file if it was disabled, so I play my video with this extension and ask NooBoss to enable jumpcutter only when the page of this player is active. By the way, there is some minor problem with the styling of the control panel. The buttons are not aligned in the middle vertically and to be honest the border and box-shadow are not so goodlooking. If someone experience the same problem, you can write a stylesheet with stylus. To align the buttons, change .fa display to table, line-height and height to 30px and set padding in .btn to 0. To get rid of the border, background and box-shadow, set them to none in .btn:not(.btn-primary).
  • (2020-11-07) Civ: works very well. Pls is support for mkv format coming any time soon?
  • (2020-08-04) Alan Teh: I was looking for a simple way to play a local video within a chrome tab in order to screenshare video and audio using Streamyard. This is it! Works very well.
  • (2020-07-02) Brunno Bueno: Its useful cause i want to accelerate my videos with an extension. The problem with your extension is that im used with youtube, so I always try to skip five seconds foward or back
  • (2020-01-06) Robbie Smith: Pro: Very user friendly. Con: Does not support Chromecast.
  • (2019-08-28) Tejasvi Rana: good for playing local mp4 videos
  • (2019-08-28) Sunny Singh: loved it

    Hello -- can you please update the code to not reject Matroska video files? I can't think of any reason they wouldn't work.
