Help With Igb Videos .





The Irish Greyhound Board Videos as of now run on windows Media Player . therefore a windows based laptop is what is generally needed to view the videos

Since late November an Update to Internet explorer has made it Not straight Forward to watch videos on Internet explorer 11

Instructions for Internet explorer

To view videos etc when on igb.ie

when on igb.ie ,click Tools on your toolbar

select Compatability View Settings  . igb .ie will be in the Box under add this website.

then select add.

Your Videos should then Play



Instructions for Chrome

For chrome install - 

Chrome atm is stopping any extensions from outside the chrome webstore being used . it is started in the latest chrome beta browsers and will soon be the case in the standard chrome browsers


you can reinstall the Chrome one easily when you restart but as you say chrome might disable it but the igb site on my version of chrome isnt running vlc via the igb site




Go to the link below

www.interoperabilitybridges.com/wmp-extension-for-chrome

download .crx file

A pop up will come up tp say that chrome does not allow this plugin - But it does and will still work if install it manually  to do so follow the following steps

click the 3 bars customize and control chrome tools icon in the top right of your Chrome window 

select settings , then extensions

then drag and drop the crx file from where you downloaded it into the middle of the extensions page 

near the top half , if you have other extensions already installed then dropping it near them should 

work

then the pop up will come up and click install

For Chrome Beta Browser - 

Chrome Beta  is stopping any extensions from outside the chrome webstore being used . it is started in the latest chrome beta browsers and will soon be the case in the standard chrome browsers

The option you will have then is to have vlc Media Player installed which will be used to play the videos

to download Vlc media Player
