nanoStream and Google Chrome

Note: this Information covers the Transition Phase for Chrome 44 to 45. With the availability of nanoStream 4, all newer Chrome Browsers are supported by nanoStream.


In Chrome version 42 introduced in April, 2015, Google changed the default setting for NPAPI plugins like nanoStream from “enabled” to “disabled”. You can re-enable NPAPI support by changing the Chrome Flag for up to Chrome 44.
This setting will be has been removed from Chrome 45 in September 2015, when all NPAPI plugin support from Chrome will be discontinued.

nanoStream Product Options for Web Browsers

All nanocosmos customers will be able to proceed using our nanoStream technology in desktop browser environments. We will
keep providing solutions and updates to our web based live video encoder software along with new browser technologies.

See our separate page for further information about browser plugin, NPAPI, Chrome Extension and WebRTC based live encoding.

Background info about NPAPI Plugins

The NPAPI technology is based on native C/C++ code which enables system-level functions in custom plugins within browser environments. Google considers this a security risk, as it is not “sandboxed” as other technologies. Until now, NPAPI is the only plugin technology available on all browsers and desktop platforms (except Internet Explorer, which is using Active-X).
