Local files in Chrome

Post by TroubleMaker » Mon Feb 24, 2020 10:34 am

Hi,

According to this thread, you should be able to turn on "Allow access to file URLs". However, in the latest version of the extension, there is no such option. Is there a way to get object recognition for local files in chrome?

Hello TroubleMaker,

Would you mind trying to start Chrome with the flag --allow-file-access-from-files? In order to do so please create a shortcut of Chrome on your desktop and open the properties.
Add the flag right after the installation path of Chrome (for example ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --allow-file-access-from-files’ and launch the Google Chrome browser from the shortcut.
I hope that helps.

Regards,
Bernhard
