[SOLVED] gecko-mediaplayer plugin with google chrome (chromium)

Has anyone get the gecko media player plugin working with google chrome (installed with the chromium package)? If I type about:plugins in the address bar, I see nothing related to this plugin. This plugin fine in Firefox. I have no idea what is the plugin path for google chrome but it finds the other mozilla plugins that lies in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.

chromium devs decided to blacklist that plugin.

OK, I have just recompiled chromium after having commented out the line responsible for the black list. Seems to work but I have not done extensive checks

You don't need the whole recompiling, it works also if you rename the *.so files (for example gecko-mediaplayer.so to gm1.so).
