Media Session Master is a chrome extension that utilizes Chrome's MediaSession API in sites that don't fully support it.
MediaSession API allows you to pause & play media within Chrome's UI and extends to the systems ability to recognize media being played. (You can use the pause & play buttons on your F1-12 keys)
Once downloaded, in order to load the package:
- Extract the folder that is inside the ZIP somewhere special.
- Head to the Extensions page (
Chrome > Settings > Extensions)
- Flip the
Developer Modeswitch on the top right of the screen.
Load unpackedon the top left and select the
srcfolder from the folder you extracted.
Firefox support is planned, however MediaSession API on Firefox is still experimental, and requires a flag to be checked. (See caniuse) At the moment, some sites such as Soundcloud are not working with the flag enabled and others may not work properly.
