So, I've always had a problem playing back 4OD streaming content. I've tried lots of fixes and none worked. I've finally found a fix that does work on this link.
Just in case it disappears the process is:
Remove the adobe cache
rm ~/.adobe -rf
Install hal and hal-info (hardware abstraction layer)
sudo apt-get install hal hal-info
Then link (ln) hal between /usr/share and /etc/ (make sure of the space between hal/ And /etc/)
sudo ln -sn /usr/share/hal/ /etc/hal
I then went to the adobe folder
and removed the three files NativeCache, AssetCache, APSPrivateData2
rm -rf NativeCache AssetCache APSPrivateData2
I don't know if all the steps are needed but it seemed to work so I'm happy !
Well since I upgraded to Mint 16 Petra, which uses Ubuntu Saucy
13.10 Demand5 stopped working.
Found a fix here though:
Quick note, close down chromium fully when in terminal, I cut and pasted the notes into Tomboy first. The Chromium icon is next to the time on the right side of the lower menu bar. Right click and exit fully closing the browser down. On next restart it should work using the ppa version fix I used.
