Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In Hungary, the biggest TV channel is RTL Klub, they has a video archive site. They use Silverlight instead of Flash :( What is annoying, they use the lastest version of Silverlight, about 4.x. But Moonlight doesn't support it yet.

I've been tried in Google Chrome (last dev version), and in Firefox (last stable version), and I've been used the both versions of Moonlight, the lastest stable, and the prerelease.

The player loader is displayed, and loaded, but no player displayed after 30 mins waiting.

If I want to switch to Ubuntu completly, how can I manage to play these videos?

Thanks for your anwsers.

Testvideo here. And this is a working video for me.

Also reported to moonlight developers, here.

I would really like to answer this question but the only solution I found involved using a windows program through wine (no guarantee that it will work) and you still need to start the video to start recording and silverlight in wine is a no go. Its not just a problem for Linux users Mac users will be affected too and I'm sure rtlnow.de users will have the same problem. Its possible that a solution may come from Germany as there are many Linux user's there who will no doubt have a similar problem. –  Allan Jan 15 '11 at 19:48
    
Hmm, I think they use Flash, doesn't they? –  B. Roland Jan 15 '11 at 23:46

Although simplistic answer this worked for me, I checked both of your links and they worked (with a rather slow video):

  • I used Chrome 11.0.696.25 (79504) Ubuntu 10.10
  • Installed Moonlight from here http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/download.aspx (installed 64bit)
  • When I opened the video, it required me some Windows Codecs but Chromium downloaded some and at the end I close the RTL Klub page and reopend it and it worked.

When I last tested, it was v2.99.0.10, but now, it is: v2.99.0.*2*, maybe they have fixed that :) - Thanks, now it works, but it slow :) - and that's not your(user's) problem. –  B. Roland Apr 2 '11 at 17:26

Could be a codec issue since the video isn't shown but player is loaded. Have you installed ubuntu-restricted-extras package?

It is installed right now... but same thing, loader & no video... :( –  B. Roland Jan 15 '11 at 23:43
    
Have you added the mscodec pack from the right click menu they are only from moonlight. It didn't make any difference for me but I am only using stable moonlight might work with the development release plus start firefox with one tab open from the terminal to test for any output messages might give you a clue to any problems. –  Allan Jan 16 '11 at 9:12
    
@Allan - Yes, Codecs already installed, I added the output... –  B. Roland Jan 16 '11 at 10:20
