I am trying to stream on HBONordic with is a mess.

I managed to finally getting it working with firefox by installing pipelight-plugin, enabling flash, widevine, and silverlight. And lastly, running sudo pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins.

Is there any way to replicate this in Opera? I would very much prefer NOT using Firefox just to stream.


Look like HBO Nordic need to work only new Flash player and Widevine. So both lack in Firefox for Linux yet. We have only Flash 11.2 so far but on Google Chrome side we have new Flash 2X and support for native Widevine.

So you in theory you should able to watch it but only on Chrome (or even on Chromium, Vivaldi or Opera if you correct load Widevine and Flash plugin). Try it. I can't because HBO Nordic only allow scandinavia users :/

  • Chrome doesn't work for me. It just doesn't load the video at all. – cbll Aug 2 '16 at 5:59
