Audio plug-in, Chrome/Win7

Postby idolphin » Thu Jul 19, 2012 5:02 pm


I am a new user. I have a FI8918W IP camera. I use Google Chrome on a netbook running window 7 (yes, I know it;'s crap). When I try to use audio I get the msg 'no audio plugin exists'. Sooooooo I installed the full VLC medi player, re-booted everything (whilst crossing my fingers) and guess what? No sound still.

Can anyone tell me, in plain English, what I need to do to get sound working?

Many thanks to anyone who can!

There is no easy method on Windows, minus using IE ("Internet Explorer") for audio in real-time.

It's important to note that you MUST use the IE 32 Bit version of the browser, if you are on a 64 bit based system.

Generally, both the 32 and 64 bit versions of IE are installed on on 64 bit based systems.

You can use your Start Button All Programs to look for the 32 bit IE version on your system.

Worse case, if needed, you can install the IE 32 bit version. The 32 and 64 bit versions can run side-by-side on 64 bit systems.
