I currently have Google Chrome dev version installed, however visting, it said I needed to install Google Chrome Beta.

Isn't dev higher than beta?

I thought there was these versions of Google Chrome, from lowest to highest version:

  • Stable
  • Beta
  • Dev
  • Canary
  • (Chromium)

Is the detection of my browser failing on the website, or have Google Chrome changed their versioning system?

Download link for the "new" chrome beta:

Works for me in Chrome Dev on OS X – cannot reproduce. What's your version exactly? – slhck Jul 9 '12 at 18:56
Just because you are using a dev release does not mean it is newer than every beta release. You could be running an old dev release that predates the latest beta. Check for updates (Wrench Menu->About) – Synetech Jul 9 '12 at 19:34
Somehow my Google Chrome installation is only version 20.x although it used to be a dev version and now it's the stable version. I don't know why. – Tyilo Jul 9 '12 at 20:04

In a new Chrome tab, open about:flags.

Scroll down to "Enable MediaStream". Note: These options are not in alphabetical order; use Find (Ctrl+F) to find it.

Click Enable.

Restart Chrome.

You can now access the demo web site.

You will need a browser that enables some new features as explained here. To make it simple, I’ve used Google Chrome Canary !

Hope it helps.
