Hello - curious to see what others are doing with the announcement Apple QuickTime ending support of it's plugin within Internet Exporer because of security vulnerabilities? We currently only run Chrome and IE in our environment and it appears only Firefox is the HTML5 browser supported. We currently run Unity Connection 10.5. We are preparing to send communication out to end users letting them know to no longer use the computer for playback but before doing we thought we would reach out to the community.
Our desktop group just removed Quicktime from all workstations because of this security and non-support issue. This broke the Web Inbox for IE and Chrome browsers. Firefox still works, but unfortunately is not widely used here.
The error that comes up when using Chrome or IE without the Quicktime plug-in is: HTML5 audio compatible browser or QuickTime Plug-in not found. Select Phone option to play the message.
I expect you'll see more people with this problem as IT departments start removing Quicktime from client workstations due to vulnerabilities and the fact that it is now officially a dead product.
This behavior was observed on Unity Connection 10.5 using these browsers:
But don't worry, Cisco will quickly provide an update to make Connection use a different media player. Judging from past experience, this will happen in 2-3 years... ;)
I'm getting this same thing. Our users like Chrome, but the IT department removed Quicktime plug-in because it is a dead product.
Now we get this when we go to Web Inbox:
HTML5 audio compatible browser or QuickTime Plug-in not found. Select Phone option to play the message.
Is there an option anymore with Chrome for Web Inbox, or 'no Quicktime, means no Chrome'?
We are on Unity Version 10.5.
It kind of looks like our options are:
Does Unity version 11.5 even support Chrome without QuickTime?
Maybe we have one option only -- Firefox.
Yes, 11.5 supports the new media player on chrome and it no longer depends on quicktime
EDIT: this is what it looks like
Yes, I just tried it, I don't have quicktime in my machine, and I heard a message from PCA on CUC 126.96.36.19900-21
Yes, overall, the way they look and work has not changed a lot between versions.
Yes, the systems requirements document for 11.x shows the new requirements, and the release notes for 11.5 also provide explanation of the new media player.
I think you are talking about something different, or? Because in the Release notes there is only the following part regarding New Media Player:
Support for Media Player
With Unity Connection 11.5(1) and later, Media Master is replaced with a new enhanced Media Player that provides improved user experience. You can use Media Player to play, record, upload and download the voice name of the user, contact, distribution list, handler and greetings using phone.
But this has nothing to do with the Web Inbox Player for Voicemails.
facing the same issue when playing VM on browser
HTML 5 audio compatible browser....
the crazy part is another user with in the environment is able to hear messages on IE successfully, same version of browser.
