Question Has anyone been able to get flash player to work in Miro?


I love Miro! Ever since Smplayer stopped working, it's become my go to video player and more. I still can't get hulu tv shows to play in it, however. Has anyone successfully done this in Linux Debian?

I even placed the flash plugin in the /.miro directory. What more can I do?

Giving only this much information would not help you. Please be more specific. Give some more details. Which OS are you using? What have you tried and what errors are you getting?

Debian 6.0.3, when I try to play a hulu video it tells me that I need to install a flash plugin that I already have installed, then if I try to download again from the adobe flash download page they take me to, it fails every time. I have tried re-installing flash with synaptic and aptitude, as well as manually and it makes no difference.

This is a known Miro/Linux problem, so I was hoping someone here had solved it by now. I'm hoping you have.

Open the ~/.huludesktop configuration file and manually input the path of libflashplayer.so in the flash_location line.

Like in My AntiX install. To find libflashplayer.so location path

Code:
$ locate libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so
I am not on my Desktop that runs Miro so I can't help with that at the present time. You might want to see if there is a ~/.miro config file and see if it needs the same as hulu.

I know hulu desktop leaves that line blank with "" for flashplayer=. I don't remember with miro though.

Download the flash plugin from here.
Extract the package-
Code:
$ tar -zxvf flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz
Then copy the libflashplayer.so file in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ directory-
Code:
$ sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

This must have worked, because when I reloaded Miro it said that I could not play the Simpsons because I didn't have HULUplus, not because of the flash plugin. Thanks for your help rokytnji! Hopefully, I can find other video sites that work through Miro and don't have this flash issue. I will check before closing the thread.

Thanks also to Satyaveer Arya! I appreciate your help.
