Many sources can be played directly in Watch2Gether but sometimes you are prompted to install a browser extension. Why is that?
The content to be played in your room is not directly supported by Watch2Gether. (e.g. because the website does not offer a way to embed their content)
The content is from a supported website but some videos can not be embedded into other websites (e.g. age restricted videos from Youtube, videos where the uploader has disabled embedding…)
The extension allows you to play this content embedded or in an external window and offers some additional convenience features to access your rooms and content sources.
Install the extension from here:
For Opera: Watch2Gether - Chrome Web Store
For Firefox: Watch2Gether – Get this Extension for 🦊 Firefox (en-US)
For Edge: Microsoft Edge Addons
For Chrome: Watch2Gether - Chrome Web Store
You might need to reload your current room after installing the extension.The browser extension is currently not available for mobile devices.
