Image from store MediaPlayer - Video and Audio Player
Description from store The "Media Player" is a browser extension to play music and video files either locally or from online sources. This project aims to bring a VLC-liked media playing experience using native HTML5 technology. The add-on is built on top of the well-known "video.js" project by applying a few custom plug-ins to enhance the user experience. This player supports media boosting, speed control, playlist media selection, fullwidth-progress bar, HTTP-streaming (M3U8), cast to a remote device, and wave surfer visual for audio files. How to Use (local resources): Open the interface and drop the media link to it How to Use (remote resources): Open a video page like https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp Right-click on the player and select "Open in Media Player" You can start watching an offline video file by dragging and dropping the video file into the player or pressing the big play button. To have the player load subtitle make sure to drop both video and subtitle files together (The dropped subtitle should have the same name as the file and needs to be in SRT or VTT format). Also, you can add a subtitle file later using the "+CC" button. This button appears when there is no subtitle found for the current track. Extra Features: 1. Video casting: right-click on the player. If your browser supports this feature, you can transfer the media to a remote device. 2. Take a screenshot: Press the "screenshot" button on the player 3. 2x volume-boosting: Like VLC, you can boost the audio by 200%. Use the boosting feature when the volume is not loud enough. 4. Media Capturing: The player can optionally detect media files in the current tab and transfer them to the media player 5. Play in a separate window or inside a browser tab 6. Supports media keys even if the player is not focused You can use your keyboard to control the following playback options: 1. "F" key: This will toggle the fullscreen mode on and off 2. "Space" key: This will toggle the playing state of the player 3. "Key Up" and "key Down": Increase or decrease volume. 4. "Key Left" and "Key Right": Seek backward and forward for 10 seconds. 5. "U" key: Shuffle playlist 6. "R" key: Toggle repeat, repeat one, and no-repeat 7. "S" key: Take s screenshot 8. "B" key: Boost volume (2x or 200%) 9. "O" key: Open network URLs Change Log: 0.1.2: 1.

  • (2022-09-05) Walton Chiang: Easiest way to cast a local playlist to Google Home. Chrome browser can play and cast by default but this plugin provided a way to control a playlist instead of casting files one by one.
  • (2022-08-15) Leo Zandvliet: As a mediaplayer does not have the ability to do the simplest thing as 'go to next' or 'go to previous' and it cannot handle/start/stop from a simple folder with media files such as FLAC or MP3 files it is worthless. This extention is worthless.
  • (2022-08-06) Anderson: In Opera this extension stopped working! I don't know if it's working in Crhome (I don't think so, because in opera it's installed via "Install Chrome Extensions", and it doesn't work). No Opera esta extensão parou de funcionar! Não sei se no Crhome está funcionando (creio que não, pois no opera ela é instalada via "Install Chrome Extensions", e não funciona).
  • (2022-07-19) A Likith Reddy: Super. It is working fine and there all the options which we need. Really it is a life saving video player
  • (2022-06-30) J R: Greatest thing I ever found, how did I not know about this? I've searched every media player app and so on for 1 I can zoom in and out of - keyboard controls ( skips 10 secs forward ETC- even viewing video in photos or drive won't do that not even viewing the file in chrome ) ! it's 5 stars but to make it more perfect allow it to open multiple window mode rather than just one
  • (2022-06-12) Yash Chawla: Thank you so much for this! This is exactly what I needed to play offline files on Google Chrome. Thanks a bunch!
  • (2022-06-11) Cass Heide: Can't seem to play the video track of an mp4 file, also can't get it to cast
  • (2022-05-20) Ahmed Aljuboori: Very BAD extension decrease the video quality
  • (2022-04-06) Rushikesh Gaikwad: Good video player but cannot change the audio stream. How do I change the audio stream? if possible.
  • (2022-04-05) Michael Roberts: Seamlessly allows play of OneDrive music on Chromebook; keeps playing when minimized. Perfect!
  • (2022-03-29) Eddy Jenkinson: Useless stuttery garbage. Worthless.
  • (2022-03-29) Xiaoman Chen: excellent!!! very useful, thank you for developing this extension!!!
  • (2022-03-21) JB Robertson: I really like this extension but I only have 1 problem with it I lose the playlist after a restart and also when you load a video that won't play it's gone also otherwise I think it's great
  • (2022-03-13) johnsuex360: Based. They care about chrome OS fags.
  • (2022-02-23) I am trying a MKV file run properly on Asus Notebook Chromebook. Video is OK, no audio. This app does not help either.
  • (2021-12-30) Priyanka Das: This is the best media player in Chrome store. I love it. please add this feature:- 1. Add support "HEVC" video codec. 2. Add option to "stretch to fit the screen" video
  • (2021-12-16) Scionxd Rally: Fantastic little player for windows user now on a chromebook. VLC and MX player run like mobile apps with ads and designed for touch controls. obnoxious to use with a laptop and mouse. before I found this I was about to throw up my hands and install ubuntu. Well done!
  • (2021-12-09) Nitin Goswami: I found the application solving my problem of being able to play media from my computer and playing it on Google Meet. The problem (and for me its a big problem) is that all my operations (e.g. play/ pause, playlist access) are visible to the remote users. The other problem is that when playing a media in the queue it picks the starting position to any random position, the media in the queue is not sure to start from the beginning.
  • (2021-12-03) Andrew Leembruggen: doesn't work, it's a bad ap and full of advertisting. can't find a way to open media. lame
  • (2021-11-10) R John: fairly useless - can't play audiobooks without crashing within a minute or two because "out of memory", extremely difficult to use with music playlists, very clunky interface - pity, I was hoping this would work
  • (2021-11-03) Emre Sert: so much better than regular chromebook media player.
  • (2021-10-26) Genc Dashi: ok
  • (2021-10-14) Bill Mc: I finally found a player that could find my music folder that's on an SD card and play though to the next song! It's simple and has good quality sound.
  • (2021-10-03) Bard Tærdian: awesome
  • (2021-09-08) Christopher Carter: Plays well, but the navigation controls become invisible after changing tracks in the playlist so it's hard to start the next track. Also, we need the option to start tracks from the beginning.
  • (2021-09-04) Thiago Nunes: Tried to play a video but audio doesn't work. If I play on local apps the audio works
  • (2021-08-29) Beverly Easterling: Can you add you add the functionality to open M4B files?
  • (2021-08-22) Kate Eruien: Worked perfectly until yesterday when it just keeps giving me the message: "No compatible source was found for this media." I thought I found the perfect media player that can cast even the subtitles on TV. But sadly, all good things come to an end.
  • (2021-08-18) Shafina Mohamed Salleh: Love it! This enables one to screenshare a local video via video conferencing such as Google Meet. The playback was smooth on the participant end too (tested by using my own account on another device)
  • (2021-08-11) Muhammad Iqbal: This is actually the best media player for Chromium OS but not much people know.
  • (2021-07-29) Krunal Dodiya: can i add any remote url pragmatically ? like i am a developer and creating a streaming app, now i don't want to create my own mediaplayer to play any media, instead i want to open that link in your extension, my application is in React, typescript, thanks
  • (2021-07-20) Yasin Arafat: Works Fantastic. Consider these two features: 01. Screenshot 02. Boost Volume
  • (2021-07-15) ahmed abdelrahman: best player for chromos
  • (2021-07-01) cir yxam: can not play [ is not recognising ] MKV video files, can not play [ is not recognising ] MPV video files, MKV format [ container ] is most used video extension together with MP4 & MOV chromebook itself can play MKV & MOV files well. can play MP4 container, as result, it can play 1 of 3 file formats, very BAD extension [ RUBBISH ] !!!
  • (2021-06-05) Ahmed Ghareeb: Nice Player, Could you add more playback speed like increase by 5 or 10 UP or Down because 0.75 is slow and 1.25 also fast to catch Regards
  • (2021-06-01) anas: Needs more speed options.
  • (2021-05-28) Klaus Forster: One that workes for heavens sake on CloudReady OS. Thanks!
  • (2021-05-18) lory sherd: excellent!!
  • (2021-03-14) HyperDuck1: Works Fantastic
  • (2021-03-07) anas: VLC lags when changing speed so I'm using this instead and it's pretty cool. Only thing I hate about is speed goes from x2 to x5, would love if there were more options.
  • (2021-01-23) Prof. Alin Gavril: This is VERY useful for presentations on Google Meet ! You can use it to play local files to your Google Meet participants.
  • (2020-12-28) harold senig: I really like it easy to understand.
  • (2020-10-01) Chris Eldridge: Description says there is a speed control. This is not correct. Files that are dragged and dropped into the extension page won't work, and there is no "big play button" to press.
  • (2020-08-18) v.aruna Chalam: simple and very nice
  • (2020-07-25) Sikay Chung: Lightweight and has everything I need, especially speed playing the local files in Chromebook.
  • (2020-07-21) Kunal Chaudhari: Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted to change the playback speed of my videos and had to search for an hour till i found one app that could do it. Thanks....
  • (2020-07-16) Ken Gachoki Njuguna: Useless.
  • (2020-03-31) Darryn van der merwe: kak
  • (2019-10-06) obglobgablob: ""Media Player" is a browser extension to play music and video files either locally or from an online source." Except that it doesn't let me play local files. It just tries to download them again and then open them in VLC player. If all it was going to do was play local files using another media player I already have then I would have just used that media player in the first place. I'm trying to play them in Chrome so I can cast them and it isn't doing it. Uninstalling and not wasting anymore time with this plugin.
  • (2019-09-06) Joel Royce: For older chromebooks this app is awesome media player. Even for new ones this will give good compitition to other since it is so light weight and has all the necessary functions. The volume percentage is not showing in full screen mode using arrow keys as it is showing in window mode. Please fix it.
