I've been trying to use pipelight to install Flash on Firefox so I can watch HBO Now. I am able to install Widevine and Silverlight without any issues but I get the following error in console when it tries to install Flash:
[install-dependency] ERROR: Downloading of wine-flash-installer failed multiple times. Please check: [install-dependency] [install-dependency] * that your internet connection is working properly [install-dependency] [install-dependency] * and that the plugin database is up-to-date. To update it just run: [install-dependency] sudo pipelight-plugin --update [install-dependency] [install-dependency] If this doesn't help then most-likely the download URLs or checksums [install-dependency] have changed. We recommend to open a bug-report in this case. [install-dependency] ERROR: Download of wine-flash-installer failed.
I have found multiple threads online from a couple years back which suggest to update pipelight to v0.2.8 but I am already using v0.2.8.2. I've run --update and --create-mozilla-plugins as well. Does anyone know how I can fix this error or download the necessary installer manually?
(using Ubuntu 16.04, Firefox 50.1.0)
edit; Also, the output of 'sudo pipelight-plugin --update' if it helps:
