Adds mpris integration for certain sites using a Firefox Webextension.
It allows you to have proper media key support for webplayers like youtube and spotify.
Only linux uses mpris so this extension will only ever work on linux!

The extension currently works with the following sites

The following software is required to use this project.
  • A fairly recent version of firefox (anything above version 64.0 should be fine)
  • glib, dbus (install using your package manager)
  • Something to interact with mpris players (like playerctl or gnome shell)
  1. Install the webextension
  2. Install the native host
    • Compiled version from here.
    • Or compile it yourself (see below)
  3. Add a native manifest file
    • Copy the mpris_integration_native.json file to ~/.mozilla/native-messaging-hosts/ and replace the path key with the location of the native host binary.
Please see the github README for more info and how to compile this extension and the native host yourself.
Risk impact

Mpris integration requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Mpris integration has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
