Currently Using Google Chrome Version 40.0.2214.10 beta (64-bit) Ubuntu 14.10
There was a time when I could watch streaming video on my computer, but at some point it seems I've lost that ability. Following earlier advice, I've installed hal from the PPA
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mjblenner/ppa-hal
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hal
and deleted ~/.adobe and rebooted, but still no luck.
I've also played around with Freshplayer and Pipelight, and I was about to get HBO Go working on Firefox, but not XFINITY, and none of them working with Chrome. In Chrome, Amazon Prime video gives me an endless loading screen, HBO Go is a big black screen and I get an endless "Buffering" screen on XFINITY.
- How can I get these DRM flash videos working on Chrome
- How can I get them working on other browsers without resorting to using Wine
Just as a note, in a fresh Chrome installation this is what I see on XFINITY
