Amazon Prime Instant Video

Postby SonicScorpion on Thu Mar 27, 2014 10:59 am

After banging my head i found what I needed to run the "Amazon Prime Instant Video" service thats allows videos to be watched on Amazon. I recently switched from Win to Linux Mint KDE 16. And was having to run the Virtual windows in KDE to view Prime. I found this not really the best due to my system limitations of memory. So I did some research on (HAL) Hardware Abstraction Layer and the issues involved with (DRM) Digital Rights Management. And after I was pointed in the right direction by proxima_centauri I found what I needed to get it running. I kept doing fresh installs of both 32 bit and 64 bit to make sure it worked with both updates applied and updates not applied and it works if you have done either. And by the way Thanks "proxima_centauri" you do great work on this forum in helping us noobs learn to enjoy the Mint.

Here it is:
open your Terminal and type the following,

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mjblenner/ppa-hal
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install hal
$ sudo rm -rf ~/.adobe

Works great in KDE version.
When I die I want to go out peacefully sleeping like my Grandfather did. Not screaming and crying like the three passengers in his car.
