Hi,

the Chromium patches are no longer maintained and didn't provide embed support (i.e you get an extra window for each running plugin). The patches were mostly used to provide a way to test two different NPAPI implementations instead of providing a user friendly experience. Moreover Google is going to disable NPAPI support even on Windows very soon.

"In April 2015 NPAPI support will be disabled by default in Chrome and we will unpublish extensions requiring NPAPI plugins from the Chrome Web Store. "

It does not really make sense to resurrect this feature any more.

Michael
