    There is an up to date version in the Ubuntu Software Centre by the name "minitube-ubuntu" (rather than just 'minitube') maintained by the developer himself and it costs $4. It is free if you grab the source code from the website and compile yourself (with the button if you want to donate)

    Edited: OK, just checked the USC and it is free now. It was $3.99 last I checked.. I don't understand why it says the license is proprietary as the source codes are available under gpl3. I have compiled it (2.1.5) and all the features work.

    It's interesting, since Chrome on Windows is meant to use Pepper as well. NNAPI isn't allowed in the Metro environment. Perhaps content providers like Amazon should simply stop using silly hacks to protect their content if they actually want to make it available to their customers. Given they haven't even released a video Cloud Player for Android, I'm not holding my breath.
    I know I shouldn't use tildes for decoration, but they always make me feel at home~

    I meant to say pepper flash on Linux.I suppose the Windows build would have drm capability enabled.

    It's probably why Canonical has added easy one click install of pepperflash for Chromium in 14.04...i guess they must have heard about it before we did

    Great in principle but as the Pepper Plugin for Linux doesn't support DRM it would appear you can forget sites like Chanel 4)D and Demand 5. Also, ironically, google movies it would appear.
