Would it be possible to move all of the xdotool stuff from the netflix plugin into this one, so that all the netflix plugin needs to do is call this plugin and all the "hackery" is done in the chrome launcher plugin. Also what would be fantastic, which would be to all the configuration of user agent based on the url requested, so this could also be removed from the netflix plugin. Would make the chrome launcher plugin far more useful.

I am looking to use it for a feature in youtube plugin for instance

I have 2 questions. OS : xbmcbuntu.

Quote:Important update: starting with version 35, Google Chrome no longer supports NPAPI plugins so Pipelight won't work in Chrome!

Does this mean chrome can't be used for this anymore? Chromium should be used?
EDIT : Google-chrome asks for silverlight.
Google-chrome-stable is fine with pipelight. (At least i get the netflix posterwall in chrome, supose thats the purpose?)

Is there a proper way to setup a remote that already works in xbmc (flirc)?

Help needed here !! Thanks Wink

Here is my config : raspberry pi + raspbmc up-to-date (& clean)

Applications added : chromium + chromium-browser + chrome launcher 1.1.1

I try to start the chrome-launcher with the sample youtube link provided by the add-on.
In the script.sh file, I've changed the path to launch chromium-browser.
Result : nothing happens. Just the small animation bottom right of the screen for 2 seconds and then nothing.

In the log file I can see the following :
