    Why do I see "missing plugin" in my Google Chrome?!!

    This thing is driving me crazy. I have Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 installed. I downloaded Google Chrome and installed it. It works. But when I trey to play in streaming something like a Web Radio, in WMA, I see "Missing Plugin" on the page. I removed/purged/installed a lot of things and now I'm lost.
    Moreover I can see the Plugin in "aboutlugin".
    Can someone to point me in the right direction?! Before I start on prozac?!!! Thanx!

    Code:
    Windows Media Player Plug-in 10 (compatible; Totem)
    Description:	The Totem 2.30.2 plugin handles video and audio streams.

    Disabling the VLC Multimedia Plug-in in about: plugins, worked for me! So, try to disable some of your plugins on a trial-and-error basis.

    join the club... it's driving me crazy as well.

    Chrome recognizes my VLC plugin (in aboutlugins), but I still get the "missing plugin" error when trying to stream.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    You have to go here:

    Code:
    chrome://plugins/
    and disable both "VLC Multimedia Plug-in" and "VLC Multimedia Plugin" if they exist. That should fix the problem.

    That worked perfectly fine, I only disabled "VLC Multimedia Plug-in" and left "VLC Multimedia Plugin (compatible Totem 3.0.1)" enabled, and worked for me.

    Thank you very much!
