How To Watch ABC.com Episodes in Google Chrome

ABC has a fairly unique player for their shows, and requires a plugin from Movenetworks.  Unfortunately, that plugin is not supported in Chrome.  You get an error message from ABC saying to use IE/Firefox or Firefox/Safari on the Mac.

So we tried capturing and modifying the javascript, even downloading the movenetwork exe file and using a variety of tricks, and….it just ain’t going to happen.  :-( By the way, a trick we tried which didn’t work, was changing Chrome’s user-agent information (saying it was IE or Firefox) but it didn’t work.

SUGGESTIONS
1. Search for your favorite ABC shows, and find other sites which might be hosting them.  For example, LOST, Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty can be watched in Chrome at http://www.tv-video.net/

Other Yes’s: Blinkx.com has some episodes which work (via megavideo.com (yea!)) but some they point you back to abc.com (boo!).

Some No’s: Among other media sites with (supposedly) full episodes, the following sites point you back to ABC so won’t work: television.aol.com, hulu.com, truveo.com, sidereel.com, and fancast.com.  

2. Keep an eye for improvements in Google  Chrome.  They have noted this problem at code.google.com in this Error Report (Issue 6502).

    簡単な言葉で解説しているホームページっていうのは、すぐに見つけることが難しいものなので困りものです。
