Google Chrome was recently released and it seems that a lot of people are having questions around why they can't access content on certain webpages. What I've found is most of those webpages that people are having trouble on are pages that are running Java applets. For example, my fullscreen slideshow applet in my gallery (G2) uses a java applet. For those of you having issues with webpages where you are getting a yellow box with a plugin icon in it that says "No Plugin Available to Display this Content" you might try downloading the latest version of the Java.

That version of Java happens to still be in beta, but it appears to be working great for most people. Specifically,Google Chrome requires Java version 6, update 10. You can download the latest version of Java from this website:

For those of you who aren't sure what to download, you probably just need the Windows Online Installer which you can download / run from this direct link: JRE Online Installer - Note: most people can uncheck the OpenOffice checkbox which will install Sun's (free) version of Microsoft Office.

Update: Google officially has this in their knowledgebase.

If this fix / tip worked for you or you have something to add, leave a comment below.

  • I would recommend getting your Java updates directly from the Sun Microsystems website per the link in the original article. Downloading files from untrusted sources (such as rapidshare) increases your exposure to viruses and other malware. I have not tested the link from naser so I can't say if it's legitimate or not, but I would still recommend downloading directly from Sun's website.

    When I visited it, it showed an embedded You Tube video, and in about a split second it said no plug ins were available. I refreshed, and this time it stayed there. When I tried to play the video, the same thing happened.

    Hey everybody! I got the no plug-in message as well. Download the Flip4Mac on Apples homepage. With that you can play Windows Media video on your Mac, here's the link:

    I think there's a free newer version, but I couldn't get it work. This version worked for me!

  • Many thanks. I was struggling with this problem for several days. Your post resolved it within a matter of minutes.

    If you have the "RealPlayer HTML5Video Downloader" extension or something similar, disable it, worked for me.
