I used to play amazon prime videos just fine. Yesterday, it started to not work. The video plays for 2 seconds and then alerts "Sorry we were unable to stream this video. This is likely because your Flash Player needs to be updated."

I tried reinstalling the latest version of flash but it is still not working. I called amazon support and they ran me around the same circles: reinstall flash, restart the computer, try a different browser, etc. After not reaching a solution, I was told they are escalating the issue and will call me back next week.

I'm wondering if anybody else has the same issue? Maybe there was an OS update that broke something. Maybe amazon updated their player and it is no longer working with linux flash. I would like to solve this problem so I can get back to streaming movies/shows on my ubuntu machine. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with the latest chrome and firefox.
