Media Playback Issues resolved in latest Chrome OS Stable Update

Netflix and Amazon Prime Video now working again on Chome devices

The Chrome OS team have just pushed out a new update to those on the stable channel.

The update to Chrome OS 25 contains a number of bug fixes and security improvements, plus an updated version of Adobe Flash.

The highlights from this update include:

  • Users logging in to Netflix will no longer be prompted with an info bar request to “Allow or Deny” access to their system from Netflix.
  • Updated Flash to 11.6.602.180, which resolves a bug where some DRM video content would be unable to play (e.g.: Amazon Prime Video).
  • Fixed an issue with Chromebook Pixel and Acer C7 systems freezing while playing videos.
  • Fixed an issue with Acer C7 systems freezing after resume.

Several security vulnerabilities are also patched in this update.

Chrome OS 25.0.1364.173 is available now for all Chrome devices. Devices will be receiving updates over the next several days.

  • The thing is I have never had any of those issues, and I have both Chrome OS devices the Samsung and Acer.

    Quick question, if everything is stored on a cloud why the need for a 320 gb hard drive? Can you or can you not store media, like pictures, video and music on the hard drive and view off line? thanks

      yes you can by downloading it to the hard drive from the internet, or you can transfer it from a sd card, flash drive, or other storage devices
