This add-on only supports IINA 1.0.0 beta 4 or later versions.

In 2.0.1, we fixed the following issue:

  • IINA not working in Chrome Extension right click menu (#2501) by @lusuee.

In 2.0.0, we have added:

  • "Open link/video/audio in IINA" in the context menu when you right-clicked corresponding content.
  • A bunch of new features for the IINA icon. When clicked, it could:
    • Open media in this page directly, and optionally enter PIP or full screen
    • Show a menu and let you choose the action, such as adding to playlist or open in a new IINA window.

You can customize the IINA icon behavior by right-clicking the icon and choose "Options".
