4OD on Linux


I see people posting all over the place about this, on Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint, etc.

Basically, the new 4OD are using the DRM features built in to the new Adobe Flash Player, which we unlucky folk on Linux do not have.  But, never to keep us down, there is a really simple workaround, one which most media companies fall for…

If you stream to mobiles, it’s hard to use the DRM, so, use the mobile site in your browser for instant access:

Tada.  Enjoy folks.
