Playing 4od videos in Chrome (UK users)


I've already install hal and hal-info and the videos are working in Firefox, any idea why they wouldn't play in Chrome?

I tried my Chromium package (I know, it's not the same as Chrome) both with Chrome's own Pepper Flash Player and using the Pipelight Flash Player plugin.
Interesting enough, the Chrome Flash player is unable to play the videos (the video stalls at the "loading" rotating sign) while the Piplelight plugin (in essence this is the Windows Flash Player run through Wine) plays the videos just fine.

It looks as if per your blog entry pipelight won't run unless I convert to multilib? Maybe I'll hold off until they support 64 bit as I tend to wreck my system by blindly upgrading the few times I've bothered to go multilib... ah well, can use Firefox when I need Channel 4 I guess.

Yes, pipelight needs multilib when you are running 64-bit Slackware. I do not think there will be a 64-bit version any time soon, though.
