Chromium Browser

I'm trying to use Chromium, as Google Chrome is getting more aggressive with data collection. The issue here is that I can not play any videos even after trying the following:

  1. Clearing all browsing data and relunching.
  2. Allow Flash player.
  3. Uncheck "use hardware acceleration".
  4. Downloading and installing Adobe Flash.

I'm out of solutions and would appreciate any help.

Thanks @Kalju for your answer>

  1. Chromium version: 81.0.3999.0 Win_x64
  2. Allow Flash player in site sitting "as you know default is blocked".
  3. Reading about this issue there was many cases when unchecking "use hardware acceleration"  in advanced sittings reported to solve the problem for some people.
  4. I downloaded the latest release of adobe flash player for chrome and installed it, to see if the newest version is able to solve this issue.
  5. Videos such as the once embedded in twitter, I can play every thing in Firefox no problem.

 

Also this is my OS: Windows 10 version 1909 build 18363.535, maybe it helps.

Hi, @steven36 and thanks,

I already did that beside the sittings step I mentioned, still no go.

I dont understand you say you can't play videos  on twitter when they dont even use Flash they use HTML5  it hard  to find flash sites anymore .

I don't think Flash can be a problem because most websites no longer have videos that require it on your computer.
There are some old widgets that require but not the videos.
And if they are somewhere, they must be some very old sites.
There is no matter, what flash plugin is installed becase there have not been for long any important updates, have been only some minor updates.
I'll upload one portable, try this. It's the current stable with sync feature added.It means, You can sync your bookmarks, logins, etc.

@Kalju Tried it and it works!! The version that I downloaded is newer than this one and not portable. Any explanation?

In developer versions may everything happen. There is often so, that today's version works, but the next not. So if You're not developer, don't use these. These are not for regular using.

Here are the latest stable version installers with sync and everything what You need.

Chromium v79.0.3945.79 for 64-bit Windows
https://github.com/Hibbiki/chromium-win64/releases/download/v79.0.3945.79-r706915/mini_installer.sync.exe
 

Chromium v79.0.3945.79 for 32-bit Windows

This is what I have found from reading about this problem, in case it may help someone.

 

Pure Chromium, if this is the right word, does not come bundled with HTML5 and a bunch of other video/audio codecs.

There are two ways this media files can be played, one to download a pre-made copy like the one @Kalju  kindly gave here and here ,or to compile it yourself following instruction in here and choose building_chromium_gn.md

Hope this help

Hi. @Kalju

 

Thanks for the links, very kind of you as usual.

Now how do I keep this updated as I know there is no auto-update, can I keep an eye on this site https://github.com/Hibbiki/chromium-win64/releases/, is it regularly updated?

 

Wolyss version have autoupdate, first when launched it checks for new version (Henry++'s chrlauncher see here: https://www.henrypp.org/product/chrlauncher )

Hi, @sky19

Appreciate your help, and looks like a handy little to keep Chromium updated, will sure try it.

Personally, I absolutely do not like this woolyss portable and the upgrade system so I did a new one and if You want, You'll get it. If don't, use woolyss but sometimes they are not correct and will destroy everything. Mine version is similar to portableapps com system and as I said, I do it if somebody need it.

Latest stable version: 81.0.4013.0

...

Who gives you this information? Or where do you get such info?
It would be nice if you no longer post developer versions to where the latest stable version, with all the code-packs and sync, is talked about.
Open a new topic to promote blank dev versions.

As far as I know, Chromium is not a majorgeeks product. Or I have mistaken?
