Amazon instant video linux updating player
Update: The current rollout is focused on Windows machines.Since Amazon added flash drm to their videos i have been working on a way to still use xbmc to browse the videos and open them up in a browser and it has actually turned out to work pretty good so i thought i would share with everyone. I know some people might be afraid to run a executable but i assure you these installers are completely safe to run. You may need to disable your screen saver to ensure it doesn't start while the video is playing.S., UK, Germany, Austria and Japan for Chrome, Internet Explorer on Windows 8.1, and Microsoft’s new Edge browser on Windows 10.The company says the web player will bring improved performance compared to Silverlight or Flash, with an interface that’s designed to look similar to the company’s Fire TV video player. Google’s You Tube made the shift to native HTML5 by default earlier this year.Firefox supported the Adobe Primetime Content Decryption Module since version 38, and Mozilla has just added support for Google's Widevine CDM in Firefox 47.Amazon Prime Video requires Microsoft Silverlight, or Google Widevine CDM, and will only stream video content to browsers that support at least one of the technologies.If you experience any problems just post on this forum, I will try to check it to make sure everything is working fine.Created a chrome installer for windows and also updated the firefox installer with the -no-remote option which i should have included in the first place if i knew about it, it makes it so your kiosk mode browser will open right even if you already have a firefox instance running.
Firefox users will soon be able to play Amazon Prime Video without requiring the Microsoft Silverlight plugin to do so.
This old architecture enables support for Flash, Java, Silverlight and other plugins in the browser so that web services can make use of them, for instance to stream video to the browser.
These technologies are for the most part replaced by HTML5 which all modern browser support out of the box.
In the address bar, go to chrome://plugins and ensure Widevine Content Decryption Module is enabled.
If missing, install it by going to chrome://components and under Widevine Cdm, click Check for update.
