PPA description

A libhal stub library forwarding to UDisks specifically to satisfy the libflashplayer.so / libadobecp requirements.

  * https://github.com/cshorler/hal-flash

The Adobe Flash web browser plugin for Linux relies upon libhal to provide information required by libadobecp (which libflashplayer.so retrieves from the internet) for playing back DRM content.

It is loosely based upon libhal.[ch] from the hal-0.5.14 package for the external interface presented by the shared library libhal. Further information on HAL can be found here:

  * http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/hal

Enter this into the form:

  * http://drmtest2.adobe.com:8080/Content/anonymous.f4v
