    Thank you for the wonderful guide, ubuntu-freak! It helped immensely on a new Intrepid install.

    Has anyone had success viewing videos at:
    http://www.nbc.com/The_Tonight_Show_...ason-17/35905/
    ? This used to work as of a few months ago, but now all I see is a peacock...

    Hi,

    any idea how to get the media at http://five.tv/demandfive to work?

    I belive it to be windows media; The content on the BBC site works just fine.

    Thanks in advance.

    Doesn't work for me either, but I'm in the UK and US networks don't let us watch your streams here, so you need someone in the US to check for you.

    I think five and Channel 4 implement it differently to the BBC, in that you really do need to be running Windows and have Windows Media Player installed. It's something to do with freedom and fairness, I mean the opposite of those two...

    Thanks for posting the info.

    I actually installed WinFF earlier today on my new lenovo 3000 N500 notebook using the new repository and it all went smoothly.

    I have had another look - it looks like Five are only supporting Windows (as the BBC originally intended to do). I will have a grumble at them when their live chat help system is up and running (it was after all endless moanng that persuaded the beeb to support systems other than windows)!

    As I understand it Channel 4's service is implemented in Silverlight of all things - they really don't want to support Linux users!

    Silverlight?? I didn't realise Channel 4 were in the business of trying to convert millions of internet users from Adobe Flash Player to Microsoft Silverlight. They should stick to buying shows for their channels.

    As for the BBC, they are legally obliged to support Linux and OS X, it's just that they say it all takes time. I'm talking about the DRM content, though.

    I'm using Kubuntu 8.10 (KDE4) 64-bit, and I'm currently trying to view YouTube videos in Konqueror (unsuccessfully). I've installed the restricted extras for Kubuntu, along with all the programs recommended by this how-to (and I chose to use kmplayer in conjunction with mozilla-mplayer). The one encouraging thing is that I can view Apple trailers (after scanning for new plugins in Konqueror). I'm new to Kubuntu, which might be worsening the issue. Does anyone have ideas to share? I would truly appreciate it--thanks!

    Oh, and I know it's possible to just use Firefox, but I'd like to stick with Konqueror (and not have to install gnome libraries on this system). I hope there's a way for this to work!

    Have you tried removing flashplugin-nonfree and tested the new alpha 64-bit build of Flash Player? It works very well. Instructions and a link to the 64-bit plug-in can be found in my troubleshooting section. You may have to scan for plug-ins again afterward.

    I've uploaded a GDM (login screen) theme to GNOME-LOOK called Abstract Human. It consists of the default Human GDM icons, but with a completely different background and layout.

    If the default login screen is too dull for you, give mine a try.
