I am unable to play Amazon Prime videos with the Chrome/Firefox browser. I've tried deleting the Flash folder and re-installed the OS.

Ubuntu 13.10 Flash Version: flashplugin-installer

Youtube works but not Amazon Prime.

Try 1: Clear Cache Flash

cd ~/.adobe/Flash_Player
rm -rf NativeCache AssetCache APSPrivateData2

Try 2: Install Older version of Flash


Some other sites have installing HAL and running hald but that was not working either as it seems to be a deprecated.

sudo apt-get install hal

I found this answer over at and it worked like a charm in Chromium. I haven't tested it in Firefox.

Basically, you have to manually download and install HAL, since it doesn't exist in the 13.10 repository.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Eric Carvalho Oct 21 '13 at 0:24
Thank you very much... That worked. – Radeesh Oct 21 '13 at 1:15
My apologies. I don't yet have the reputation to be able to post more than one link in an answer yet, so I had to just post the link to the answer. – user205286 Oct 21 '13 at 1:19
