AlienBob's Pipelight packages work for NFL Sunday Ticket too!
 
I just discovered today that AlienBob's Pipelight packages enable you to watch NFL Sunday Ticket as well as Netflix. To install, follow his instructions below.

http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/pipe...inux-browsers/

After that, you need to issue this command as the user who will be running the browser:

Code:

pipelight-plugin --enable flash
You will need to disable the Linux flash player before trying to watch anything.

holding my breath until I'm done with a client's migration...

If you are using Firefox and the pipelight diagnostics page informs you that SilverLight was installed OK but that your browser’s plugin cache needs to be cleared, you should follow the advice. If you don’t do that, Firefox will not reload the plugin on the next start. To clear the plugin cache, type “about:support” in your address line and hit Enter. You should now see a button which opens your profile directory. Click on it and remove the “pluginreg.dat” file. Restart your browser and check if it works (don’t worry, the “pluginreg.dat” file will be automatically re-created).
My browser’s plugin cache needs to be cleared, but
I am having problem clearing my “Profile Directory”. When i click on the “Open directory” button, it brought up the Audacious, I can’t locate the “pluginreg.dat” file in order to remove it.

Edit: Thanks Eric.Problem solved following your guide:
Quote:

Try this in order to find the file:
Quote:

find ~/.mozilla/firefox -name pluginreg.dat

,
after that, i do
Quote:

rm -i pluginreg.dat
at the Konsole.

I am running flash as well.

Well, I have had partial success on netflix.com using the instructions at http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/pipe...inux-browsers/

I only get a black screen and no content played.

Ideas or suggestions welcome.

Slack14 / x86_64 mulit-lib.

NOTE:
pipelight-plugin --list-enabled
silverlight5.1

and my /tmp stuff:
Code:

OpenAL-compat32-1.15.1-x86_64-1aliencompat32.txz
cabextract-1.4-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz
package-OpenAL-compat32/
pipelight-0.2.2-x86_64-1alien.tgz
pipelight-wine-flash-installer.exe
pipelight-wine-mpg2splt-installer.cab
pipelight-wine-silverlight5.1-installer.exe
pipelight-wine-wininet-installer.exe

You may need to reinstall the proprietary graphics driver (Nvidia, in my case), and let it install the 32 bit layer.

Well, I do have that installed.

v.319.32

Note that the "pipelight-plugin --list-enabled" only shows what has been enabled, this is not the same as actually installed and useable.
You would also need wine-pipelight which you did not mention explicitly, although the existence of those .exe files in /tmp is a good indication that the pipelight plugin has has actually told Wine to download and install those. Software-wise it looks OK.

Why the rendered area remains black, remains the question. Did you actually re-install the graphics driver after installing the 32-bit multilib stuff?
Another option is to draw the developers' attention by posting your question on https://answers.launchpad.net/pipelight

Eric:
Code:

wget http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/wine-pipelight/pkg64/14.0/wine-pipelight-1.7.6-x86_64-1alien.tgz
installpkg ./wine-pipelight-1.7.6-x86_64-1alien.tgz

and no, I haven't re-installed the nVidia driver in 32bit mode.

Thanks.

OK.
Re-installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-331.20 and allowed 32bit stuff.
Rebooted.
Now it's Error Code: 1001

but I do see a partial (1s) 'flash' of alleged content before the error message.

and just for grins and giggles:

Since my slackdvd showed up yesterday, I may have to wait and install it.

Thanks Everyone.
