Thanks for taking the time to make this video.
Please revise it, edit the small mistakes, and maybe give it a title: “Downloading Java…”

Umm, the video is no good if it’s blocked by corporate policy. How about some simple text for us visually challenged (read behind a corporate proxy) folk?

Hey, I do respect you trying to help people out, (it helped me) but please try not to ask for subscribers, etc.

11 bid slam 09.06.08 at 1:29 am

funny thing is i got here in a chrome browser and the video wont play

12 Ron 09.06.08 at 10:04 am

if you have java installed locally on your machine you could save the time of going thru the video by opening any website that makes heavy usage of java.
if you haven’t installed java yet then the video will guide you through installation and verification.
thanks for the effort and good explanation of installing and verify the installation.

13 keepitsimpleengineer 09.06.08 at 5:08 pm

My installation failed. To make it work, I had to uninstall all previous version of java JRE

14 robert 09.07.08 at 1:41 am

video worse than useless: impossible to follow Robert

15 Homer 09.07.08 at 10:54 am

Here is the actual link, to download. It’s at the Sun Developer site and I guess it’s a Beta but it works. After installing close and re-open Chrome.

where is it??

17 Emerson Cargnin 09.07.08 at 8:58 pm

It would be great if Chrome had autocompletion of fields, like the one of Google’s toolbar in firefox…

Here are more details about how Java 6u10 RC fails to work with the Citrix Javaclient Applet:

Error with Java 6u10 and Citrix:
Error: The connection failed: Please make sure the destination server [;40;STAD967776ECB8B;F82DCFF295EA3939EDBA7F8A3A1AC699] is listening on port [1494] and try again.

I access my work desktop by going to https://access.act.gov.au. I enter my username, password and pass code (provided by a USB stick with a digital display). The site runs the applet javaclient which boots up a view of my work desktop. This works perfectly fine with FIrefox 2, 3 and Internet Explorer 6, 7, as long as java re 6u7 is installed. As soon as I install java re 6u10 RC, the javaclient app crashes and I don’t get to see my work desktop. When I uninstall this version and go back to 6u7, it works fine on Firefox and Internet Explorer. Either way, Google chrome does not work: for 6u7 it says: no plug-in installed for 6u10 the applet crashes just like on the other browsers.

Install 6u10 Go to https://access.act.gov.au or (probably) any other Citrix dependent site. Login The applet crashes.

Uninstall 6u10 and everything works fine again.

Hi people.
I would like a step by-step guide. Actually I believe that if I’m migrating from other browsers, the Java installation should be one button. I already have a JVM in my machine and don’t want to download other. Also I don’t have access to video here. So I need something write. I believe that other persons face the same problem.

Miguel – A step by step guide? OK

Download This: JRE 6 Update 10 from Java.sun.com

Run It, Then Close and Reopen Chrome.

Pretty simple really, if you have any problems with those instructions please let me know.

21 Craig 10.07.08 at 8:48 am

I tried installing JDK 6 Update 10 from Sun. This includes a JRE but I could not get Chrome working with Java (Webstart to be precise)

22 Gill r 11.28.08 at 11:12 am

guys…stop fretting, all u have to do is go to add/remove program in ur control panel and uninstall the old version of java, restart ur browser and voila!!! no need to thank me..i’m just spreading the news

23 Chris 04.16.09 at 9:01 am

The java jre 6 update 13 dosen’t seem to work with chrome eaven after a re-install of both chrome and java.

Since the video has been taken down, could we please unlink this page from Plug-Ins.
1. Not a plug-in
2. No video

26 Twitch 06.15.10 at 5:12 pm

Are you folk nuts, the youtube video goes to some dark blue
highschool(?) dance.

I’m not going to log on to some site to search for a pluin

I’ll just useo Opera who first came up with: “the path-breaking features of Google Chrome Browser is the Thumbnail History of the most visited sites”

27 swissmiss 10.24.10 at 11:26 am

Ironic, you’d use a video tutorial to help with chrome / java….. because i need help with it but the lack of the plugin working prevents me from seeing the effing video.

28 Gman 12.28.10 at 11:38 pm

Hey thanks alot

29 Sergani 05.20.11 at 11:17 am

Techworxs… you’re such an ass hole :S
All you want is for people to visit your youtube channel and subscribe, how broke is that? How cheap is that?

You miserable loser….

30 chastity 12.09.11 at 9:35 am

31 tc 09.11.12 at 8:24 am

Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you
know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.

I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
