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 content 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 extension - Opera add-ons
For Firefox: Watch2Gether – Get this Extension for 🦊 Firefox (en-US)
For Edge: Microsoft Edge Addons
For Chrome: (coming soon)
(The browser extension is currently not available for mobile devices)
