Hi Shadow_7...

When you say "build stuff," do you mean just "make" or were there specific commands you used?

Thanks!

Regards...

I had to do some weird autoconf stuff to create the ./configure script (autoreconf -i) +/- or (dh_autoreconf). I tried a bit of everything. But basically:

$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ make

Although more along the lines of "fakeroot debian/rules binary" (which failed, but left the .so behind). Since I didn't do the make install part (did it effectively manually), I probably could have gotten away with make -f Makefile or something along those lines. HTH

This got Hulu working for me in Firefox 42 on Ubuntu Mate 14.04 LTS. You will need to have the latest version of flash installed which you can get from the software center. Note: this does not work for Chrome. Irritating to have to use a dufferent browsr but not as bad as having to reboot to widows. Booting to Windows makes me angry, you wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
1. Add the Ubuntu Hal PPA
The*cleanest*way to install HAL on*Ubuntu is through a third-party repository or personal package archive (PPA).*And the fastest way to add a PPA is using the Terminal.
If*using the command line is*too intimidating a task*you can do it the GUI way*(though if you’re scared by the command line*you probably shouldn’t be adding libraries from third-party PPAs).
Copy and paste*the following command into the terminal, and enter your user password when prompted:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/hal-flash
When complete, move on to the next step.
2. Install HAL
Having added the PPA you now need to install HAL. We will use the Terminal to do this:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libhal1-flash
Allow the process to fully complete. Then reboot your system. This is not*strictly*necessary but is advised to ensure that*browser and plugin processes quit correctly.

I got around to doing this setup on another machine and here's the "build stuff".

# apt-get install bzr libdbus-1-dev dh-autoreconf

$ dh_autoreconf
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ make

Along with the other bzr to get the repo of sorts, and manual ln -s steps to "install". And oddly the .deb built this time around.

(instead of make and completely manual install)
# apt-get install bzr libdbus-1-dev dh-autoreconf

$ dh_autoreconf
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ fakeroot debian/rules binary
$ cd ../
$ ls *.deb

# dpkg -i libhal1-flash_0.3.0ubuntu1_amd64.deb

I seem to be able to play both Netflix and Amazon Prime on my Linux machines again. Is Hulu using this new HTML5 DRM only present in Firefox on Windows?

Looks like things are working again!

I'm not sure exactly what the Hulu folk have done, but right-clicking the video brings up something about "Hulu Player" and some version info. Poking around the source I found something about a dash-player-app. Well, whatever they've done, seems to work again for me on Debian 8!

Hi all...

I can confirm this...watching a show on Hulu using Chrome 43.0.2357.125 right now.

Regards...

Hi all...

As an update and as some of you may know, Hulu has changed to a subscription (only) based service, as described here, and shifted their free content to Yahoo View. Since that time, I've been unable to view any content on Yahoo View using Google Chrome. When I've tried, I received the same error code 3336 as before, advising me to try Firefox instead, which I did, only to run into another error, which I can't remember. I had already installed HAL (the version for Ubuntu can be found here,) so I didn't think that was the problem. However, I followed one of the suggestions offered and ran the commands under "Prerequisites for protected content playback," specifically...

Code:
cd ~/.adobe/Flash_Player
rm -rf NativeCache AssetCache APSPrivateData2
This fixed the issue and now I can watch content on Yahoo View using Firefox with no problems.

Hope this helpful to anyone who has the same issue I had....

Regards...
