Manual Installation of My Screen Sharing (Google Chrome)

In countries where the Google Play store is blocked or companies that would like to manage the availability of Chrome Extensions through enterprise wide policy then you have 2 manual installation options that are available to you. 

Group Policy Deployment

For companies that are using a Microsoft Active directory, then managing Chrome extensions with Group Policies or Master_Preferences would likely be the preferred approach. 

This is an advanced administrative procedure and it is recommended that it be undertaken by an experienced technical resource.

More information on these methods can be found here:

Countries with Google Play access

You can obtain the extension from here and use your normal distribution methods for Google Plays store:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mymeetingvideo.app

 

Countries without Google Play access

The Videxio packaged extension and XML manifest files can be obtained from here: 

https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/download.vmr.vc/public/software/my-screen-sharing/Videxio_MSS_extension_1_0_2.crx

https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/download.vmr.vc/public/software/my-screen-sharing/mss-manifest.xml

Only use files obtained from this repository as the extension ID of these packages is approved to run with MyPages. If you package your own extension then the MyScreenSharing will not work with MyPages.

 

Manual Installation

For companies that don't have Microsoft Active Directory, as a work around you will need to perform a manual installation of this Chrome Extension.

Download Videxio_MSS_Extension.ZIP file for the Google Chrome .CRX extension My Screen Sharing found at the footer of this article.


Then follow these instructions for manually installing this extension in to the browser. 

1. Go to chrome://extensions/ and check the box for Developer mode in the top right.
2. Locate the ZIP file on your computer and unzip it.
3. Go back to the chrome://extensions/ page and click the Load unpacked extension button and select the unzipped folder for your extension to install it.

  • Please be aware that this extension will not auto update if a new software release is submitted to the Google Play store.
  • Users will also need developer mode enabled to continue to use the extension
