Default media player in Google Chrome
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 19, 2010
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop, and I'm using Google Chrome as a browser.
Every time I open any video file in the browser, it automatically uses the Totem Movie Player plugin to play it. I would prefer it to use the VLC plugin as a default (I do have the plugin installed). I've tried to find the option in Chrome's preferences, and I checked my plugins, and when I disable the Totem plugin, videos don't play in the browser at all.
I figure it should be simple, so I figure maybe I'm missing something.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
samba for streaming media player (google tv)

Why are permissions no longer automatically applied when creating a share through nautilus? BTW I'm using 13.04 and this was always done on all previous versions I've used. I have a shared folder on my computer full of movies to be seen from my Google TV device and this has always worked in the past. I should add that although i can see the share on my google tv i cant access it. I have no idea how to manually set these permissions and the files aren't even listed in /etc/samba/smb.conf, however i know they exist cause like i say they can be seen from google tv
Setting VLC as default Media Player
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 27, 2009
My OS is Hardy 8.0.3
I have set VLC as my default media when selecting a file via the right click > Open With > Open With Other Application method for all the file types I have on my hard drive but when I open media directly from firefox or preview it within deluge, it uses Totem.
There is nowhere in 'Preferrred Applications' to change the default media player and if I uninstall Totem, I can't open media from firefox (without downloading it to my hard drive first) or watch a preview within deluge.
Can the default player be done via 'Configuration Editor' perhaps?
Any ideas would be helpful!
Flash Player Firefox vs. Google Chrome Ubuntu Lucid
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 17, 2010
New to the forum and Ubuntu,
I am wondering why Flash in Firefox is much slower than Flash in Google Chrome. Also, according to the Adobe website, Google Chrome has a newer version of Flash installed than Firefox. Why the difference in versions and performance? ookla with Firefox is exactly 1/2 as fast as Google Chrome. Hulu with Firefox sets video to 360p and with Chrome it sets to 480p. I have tried everything on Google to fix Flash in Firefox, some even claim it is a Kernel problem, but how can that be if Chrome is not affected? Shouldn't chrome have the same problems as Firefox? I want to use Firefox because of the Totem, VLC, and Mplayer plug-ins, but Flash is a killer.
Windows Media Player plugin for Chrome and or Firefox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 8, 2011
I am trying to watch a paid TV channel through it's online site and I am told that it only works with a Windows media Player plugin in either Chrome or Firefox as I use Ubuntu. The websites customer service team tells me that it works fine for Windows users and they do have Ubuntu users who have made it work.
Would anyone know how to install Windows Media Player plugins on Chrome or Firefox? Or any alternatives? Please help.

I found this while searching through Google, here's the url:
Use Google Chrome Built-In Flash In Firefox For (Probably) Less Crashes
I had some issues with Adobe Flash crashing very often using the latest Firefox 4 so I've searched for a way to fix this and found a topic on AskUbuntu which says to use Chrome's Flash plugin in Chromium so I though - why not do it for Firefox? - and it's actually working quite well for now.
Chrome uses a built-in Adobe Flash plugin which seems to work better then the regular Flash. But there's a catch: you must install Chrome (and keep it updated if you want further Flash updates) even if you don't use it.
Use the built-in Chrome Flash plugin in Firefox
1. Download and install Google Chrome (I for one prefer the unstable branch but I guess any version will do)
2. Open a terminal and copy / paste the following commands:
mkdir -p ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /opt/google/chrome

I just made Google Chrome my default web browser!

I just made Google Chrome my default web browser!
The progression has been gradual, we are fortunate to have 3 great web browsers to choose from: Opera, Firefox, and Google Chrome.
I honestly have not used Opera in a while but still find it is a great web browser. Lately, I have found myself using Google Chrome over Firefox for at least a couple of months now.
While I will always love Firefox, Google Chrome surpasses Firefox in speed, ease of use and with the built in default settings I do not miss any Firefox add-ons. Having themes available for Google Chrome is icing on the cake.
Will I occasionally use Firefox again?...of course and on a rare occasion even Opera but Google Chrome has become my first choice for a Web Browser.
Have you made the switch yet from Firefox, Opera or other web browsers to making Google Chrome/Chromium your default web browser?
The fact that you can use both AdBlock Plus and FlashBlock flawlessly in the latest Google Chrome/Chromium should be a w
Google Chrome default icons verses Themes.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2012
When I first installed Chrome Browser it had icons on the new tab. As soon as I clicked on themes in the settings there were gone. Chrome Browser in Windows works different, you can change themes and keep the icons but not in Linux.
The icons looked something like this:
Now they look like this since I clicked on themes.

I wanted to go back to the icons but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it? Anyone have an idea how to do this?
It is not a matter of life and death, but I would like to do this.
