amazon video on demand


It works on my wife's Ubuntu machine (last LTS release) but not on Linux Mint (most recent release)

It just says "loading" and never loads the video. I've tried firefox, Chromium, and Opera. And I've installed all the codecs I can think of (libav52-extra). Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Confirmed that runs ok on Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.10 and does not run on Linux Mint LXDE. So something about Linux Mint doesn't let it run. Odd

yeah, if you go, for example, to the walking dead season 2 you can get the trailer for free

On Debian Squeeze w. Opera (and Flash correctly installed) it doesn't do a thing.

OK. so on Mint and Debian no dice. On Ubuntu and Fedora it works. I'd be interested to see what others think

Did you updated/upgraded Adobe Flash correctly?

Check the deb packages
