Hi

Azure videos using Azure Media Player is not working in Chromium browser. 

The issue is with Chromium browser and not Chrome. It is working perfectly in Chrome and Mozilla. I am attaching the error screenshot here.

Error Message: The video playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the video used features your browser did not support. (0x20400003)

Does any one has a solution to this?

The issue can be checked from this link also: http://ampdemo.azureedge.net/

Chromium browser is unable to play the videos over here.

Chromium does not include the necessary media codecs like AAC, H.264, or MP3 that Chrime or Firefox include. Without these codecs, your media won't play. You will need to use a browser that includes the codecs by default or manually install the codecs into Chromium.
