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 http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2144347 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.
