How can I install Google Chrome for Windows on Lutris?


On Windows, I often watch videos on a Chinese website.
On Linux, I cannot watch videos on it because it does not support Linux. Therefore, I have to install Google Chrome for Windows.
I installed Lutris and have tried to install Google Chrome on it. However, I get the following error message whenever I click on the "Play" button.

Which version of Wine below should I download?

Have I selected a wrong Wine version below?

The error you posted is indicating a file needed to run the software does not exist so have you gone to that directory to see if it does?

Code:
 cd /opt/apps/net.lutris.lutris/files/games/
then run ls command to see if lutris-wraper does exist.

It does not exist. See below:
Code:
Matthew_Wai@MatthewWai:~$ ls "/opt/apps/net.lutris.lutris/files/games/"
lutris  lutris.sh
Matthew_Wai@MatthewWai:~$
I don't know how to create it.

Really? What did you try to get it running on Linux? What errors were reported?

I want to run Google Chrome for Windows on Linux.
When the Chinese website knows that I am running Google Chrome for Linux, it does not allow me to watch videos except trailers and advertisements. For details, see https://www.mytvsuper.com/promo/en/tutorial

Expand "1. myTV SUPER Service Basic Requirement". Then expand "Q4) Web browser". It will display the info shown in the screenshot attached below:

I see nothing stating that it will not work with linux. Only what it will work with.

Did you actually try? If so, what happened?

When I am running Chrome for Windows, I can watch full videos and live videos.

Years ago, a Chinese guy on another forum devised a method to bypass the requirements by using Firefox. It worked for a while but did not work afterward. I re-posted the method on the page below:

There are many ways. I'm not sure what is currently the "recommended" method. Others may know, or you can use your favourite search engine.

Open a terminal window and add the Lutris PPA with this command: $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris.
Next, make sure you update apt first but then install Lutris as normal: $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install lutris.

If you get command not found while using sudo, which of the hundreds of different distributions of Linux might you be using? THose commands are generally specific to Debian/Ubuntu based systems.

UnionTech OS Desktop Home, developed from Deepin, a distro based on Debian.

I can install the package shown below:
Code:
Matthew_Wai@MatthewWai:~$ apt search software-properties-common
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
software-properties-common/unknown,unknown 0.96.20.2-2 all
  manage the repositories that you install software from (common)
