Google Chrome – Cannot play embedded .wmw or .mpg/.mpeg

KB ID 0000184 


I’m a big fan of Google Chrome, i’ts fast, and clean, and it does exactly what it says on the tin! I had noticed, I had a problem playing embedded video though.

chrome video wont play

As I use this format on PeteNetLive it was my only gripe, (well that and syncing bookmarks, but I cured that with Xmarks). Took me a bit of searching but I got it fixed in the end.


1. Download THIS (Yes I know it says Firefox – trust me!).

2. Close all your browser windows.

3. Run the file you downloaded above.

4. Now you can play embedded video.
