To watch hoopla movies through your browser, you will need to download and install the Widevine video player plug-in. Widevine is a free add-on for your browser that is owned by Google. If you do not already have this installed when you attempt to play a video title in your web browser, you will see a notification that will direct you to the Widevine website; from there you simply need to click on Install Now and follow the on–screen prompts.
