    which version of flash do you have. Did you try my instructions? If so, what was the result?

    This has previously worked for me, but now there is no hal in the saucy repository. I've tried manually installing hal but the installation package insists that I don't have expat installed (I have). So my 4od is currently not working. Any suggestions?

    Good find, thanks!

    I only tried 4OD this morning and wondered why the little circle just kept spinning. Thanks for the link.

    Re: channel4 4od stream not working

    in my case i had to install HAL

    and also enable javascript (as i have a pluggin that blocks it - NoScript)
    for adobe.com and macromedia.com

    just test your installation on the macromedia website and if it works you should be good to go!

    thanks for the comments above!

    now i can watch my video on the way home?

    Re: channel4 4od stream not working

    This - or rather the following - works for me on Firefox (on Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon x64) but not on Chromium or Opera.

    rm ~/.adobe -rf
    sudo apt-get -y install hal hal-info
    sudo apt-get -y install flashplugin-installer --reinstall
    sudo rm -r /etc/hal
    sudo ln -sn /usr/share/hal /etc/hal
    cd ~/.adobe/Flash_Player
    rm -rf NativeCache AssetCache APSPrivateData2

    I managed to get Chromium (haven't tried Opera) to use PepperFlash, but that didn't help.
