Homebrew Tap for the Marmaduke Chromium builds
If you’re looking for a macOS build of the latest stable Chromium which includes modern video codecs such as H.264, then the marmaduke builds as advertised on Woolyss are your best bet.
This homebrew tap was created for the easy installation of above-mentioned builds.
To install do:
brew tap cpbotha/marmaduke-chromium brew cask install marmaduke-chromium
If you prefer the build without google sync and widevine (which you do need to play for example Netflix), then rather install:
brew cask install marmaduke-chromium-nosync
Since 2019-03-05, there is also a cask for the UNGOOGLED Chromium build by Marmaduke which you can install with:
brew cask install marmaduke-chromium-ungoogled
Which cask should I use?
If you don’t know, then use
Updating your chromium
From here on, do the following to upgrade when a new build becomes available:
brew update brew cask upgrade marmaduke-chromium
Important notice re version v70.0.3538.102
If you installed the
marmaduke-chromium cask of v70.0.3538.102 on
November 11 or 12, you might have received a temporarily broken
build. If your chromium does not want to run, please do the following
to get marmaduke’s fixed build:
brew update brew cask uninstall marmaduke-chromium brew cask install marmaduke-chromium
