    Default ppapi and mimetypes in linux

    Hi

    I try writing an ppapi plugin into my extension (which is already working). The plugin seem to load all well and appear into the chrome://plugins/. Only that I can't (or I don't know how) use it for anything from there.

    The plugin is missing the description and it's mimetypes when I look at the details. If I put <object/> or <embed/> into my panel.html, I don't know what to put into type -field which would otherwise contain the associated mimetype of the container.

    Anyone knows how to do anything with these newly created ppapi plugins?

    (I can supply some more details later today, though someone might know what I need to do straight out of what I've written now.)

    Just add the mimetype you want to the type field.
    I haven't really done NPAPI extensions, but it sounds like you have to register the mimetype by declaring a certain function in your .so, see this.
