I am running Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 with GNOME 3.20 and want to watch programs on 4od, but I am just met with a never ending spinning loading thing when trying to play a video there.
I did some further research into it and found out that I needed the HAL package (I tried the steps here but it didn't work: 4oD (UK) - Can't stream). Then I found out that the HAL package had been made obsolete. I finally then found this guide to another HAL repository that many had reported had worked: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/10/fixing-amazon-prime-streaming-drm-protected-flash-13-10
But once I had installed that HAL, I found that it still did not fix the problem.
Someone recommended that I should get VLC player, but I have been trying to get it to work somehow with that for some time now and it just doesn't.
So I am wondering if anybody has any advise?
