The new version of KDE's browser integration extension lets you play, pause and control video and audio playing in your web browser from your Plasma desktop, be it a kitten video on YouTube, a nature program on Netflix, or an art-house movie on Vimeo.
This also means it is integrated with your phone through KDE Connect. Check it out: if your phone rings, your YouTube video pauses while you take the call!
You can find browser tabs in KRunner, Plasma's document finder/app runner; send links from your browser to your phone with KDE Connect and control downloads started in your browser from your desktop.
For Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi, etc.: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/plasma-integration/cimiefiiaegbelhefglklhhakcgmhkai
@kde what about Falkon?
@kde OMG, THIS IS AWESOME!!
@rugk you can play pause!
@jr well yeah, that's all I need, I guess 😃
Cool! Maybe using video.blender.org as part of the example wouldve been better though 🤔
@kde I've been using this featue for forever now lol
