Hopefully this makes more sense to you than it does to me. :)

OK, I've tested this twice now on fresh installs of Peppermint 4...

As long as you haven't disabled javascript in Chromium, the only packages that need to be installed for the HTML5 jmplayer as used at this example site:
http://archive.org/details/kim2013-10-17
to work are chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra and libavcodec-extra-53, so running these 2 commands:
Code:
sudo apt-get update

then:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra libavcodec-extra-53

then closing ALL web browser instances and restarting Chromium should do the trick.

==================================================

Both of those packages *should* have been installed along with lubuntu-restricted-extras .. so if I were you I'd instead (or as well) run these 3 commands to reinstall ALL the packages that should have been pulled in with lubuntu-restricted-extras:
Code:
sudo apt-get update

then:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall  ttf-mscorefonts-installer

If prompted to accept the license, use the "Tab" key to select Yes and OK and the enter key to continue.

Once that command has finished, run:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall cabextract chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra libavcodec-extra-53 libavutil-extra-51 libdirac-encoder0 libopenjpeg2 libvo-aacenc0 libvo-amrwbenc0 lubuntu-restricted-addons lubuntu-restricted-extras

(the above is one long command, so probably best to copy/paste it into the terminal)

then close ALL web browser instances and restart Chromium

Thank you so much for all the help. I'm not the original poster, but this solved the problem for me.
