This works good, however when I close the window on Windows 7 it doesn't switch back to XBMC. XBMC is still open but it's remains minimized. Also would it be possible to make kiosk mode optional? I would like to toggle fullscreen for access to the awesome bar/address bar.

Thank you so much for an awesome addon

Go to "System->System->Video output" and activate "Use a fullscreen window rather than true fullscreen". It should then work.

Will add a setting for that...

Any chance of making this compatible with the newest Gotham Alpha 10 Nightly? I installed the XBMC nightly from today and Chrome Launcher shows as incompatible in your repo.

Sure. I'll change it.

That's a really great add-on ! Thanks for your time. I'm using it on a touch screen, but I have to get back my wireless keyboard to exit from. Would it be possible to add something like an optionnal exit button on a corner that appears for some seconds when the screen is touched (i.e. mouse is moved) ?

The addon just starts chrome, so i cannot implement anything like that. Sorry.
I now added a setting to not use kiosk mode, so you will see the default close button...

Force refresh again until the addons show up.
I hope this gets fixed with 12.3 - people asking me this nearly every day... Wink

Thanks got it to work! Any way to remove the two websites that come with the add on?

Also, this may be a more general question but does anyone know if it is possible to control video that is played back through this add on with my remote keys?

Great work by the way, works very very well!

Remove line 68+69 from default.py...

This depends on the website. Some flash/silverlight/html5/whatever players are controllable via hotkeys - some not.

I'm trying to get this to work (for NetfliXMBC) on OSX 10.7.5. When a full screen Chrome is launched, it opens a new desktop which OSX automatically shifts to. However the video plays in the original desktop, so all I see a grey patterned background screen (like you see when first logging into OSX). So then I have to switch the desktop back over to see the video and then Force Close the Chrome app to get back to XBMC.

Does anyone have any experience getting it to work more efficiently on Lion? Any help is appreciated!

Sorry, i don't really use OSX. Only did a quick test. Maybe you can turn off this fullscreen behavior system wide in OSX.
I also added support for Safari in NetfliXBMC. You can try that, but i guess it would be the same (but Safari has no real fullscreen).

I only tested NetfliXBMC on OSX 10.8 - and i did not noticed this grey screen problem.
Or maybe it's also related to the Chrome version...
