UKTV Play
« on: February 22, 2020, 04:42:47 pm »
Has anyone managed to access UKTV Play using Linux? Their website says that under Linux only Google Chrome will work, but when I tried it I was repeatedly told to turn off my add-blocker. Obviously, a newly installed browser doesn't have an add-blocker, so I tried relaxing the privacy to enable tracking, but that didn't help. I thought of running a Windows browser with Wine, but they are all rated "garbage" by Winehq. The tool youtube-dl lists UKTV as supported but omits to tell you how to use it.

Thanks, but the second link is to one of my own posts and the tip in the second doesn't apply — I already have hal installed. As I said at Linux Questions, I can live without this stuff.
