Windows Media Player alert

Recommended Posts

I have just upgraded to version and implemented the prestashop_new theme (1.5)


The first time my customers visit the shop using chrome, the browser asks for permission to run the Windows Media Player plugin. I can not see anything on the front page that is missing if the plugin is blocked.


Has anybody seen this also ?

I had the same thing on two of my PrestaShop installations and noticed it happening on a lot of other PS stores too.


It has to do with PrestaShop sending a request to see what plugins are installed in the customer's browser - Chrome interprets that as a request to run the Windows Media Player plugin, and then asks for permission.


If you disable the Software Stats module under Modules > Analytics & Stats, it goes away.
