I know there are a couple of threads on hotstar.com not working in Ubuntu. I reached them and found the issue to be missing Adobe elements support with Ubuntu

We use Adobe Flash Player and Adobe DRM & Adobe has stopped support for Flash Player on Ubuntu, hence the issue.

I was checking how their streaming service works in Windows, but not in Ubuntu. This happened even when I use Google Chrome and Firefox within Ubuntu. Any work around possible ? Thanks.

  • Are you use Chrome or Chromium? I'm asking because Chrome being delivered with Pepper Flash (which is latest Flash modified by Google). Also FYI Adobe is officially dropping support for Flash by 2020 (almost 2 years left), so they have to migrate to another solution, e.g. the one Netflix are using. You can annoy them a bit, to hasten up their migration. – Hi-Angel Sep 13 '17 at 17:59
  • @Hi-Angel I have issues on both Chromium as well as Google Chrome. I really hope they are true to their word about " Working on it.." – user227495 Sep 13 '17 at 18:02
