Silverlight problems

Postby not313 » 2017-05-18 17:59

Hello everyone,

My ISP offers me a service where i can watch tv anywhere inside my house wtv is a PC tablet or android phone.

For PC they have 2 ways:
    On the browser
    On Windows app they have developed ONLY for windows 8/8.1/10
Im running debian 8 and as normal i followed a few tuts on how to get silverlight running on debian. Installed wine-staging, installed pipelight-multi, enabled silverlight and created silverlight plugin for firefox.

If i go here http://www.kcba.org/streaming/Test-Streaming.aspx silverlight works

Here http://bubblemark.com/sl3/TestPage.html silverlight works too, but on my ISPs streaming page doesnt work

I get the following output from terminal:

it would be wiser to set that up yourself with e.g. kodi (instead of outsourcing it "into the cloud", and telling your ISP about your usage habits in full detail).
this is one of these things where linux really shines.

I have emailed my ISP and until today i still dont have an answer. What about VLC? Not a huge fan of kodi. The platform provided by my ISP uses http-over-tls and has a normal username password login. Will VLC be able to decrypt the signal?

I'm s̶u̶r̶p̶r̶i̶s̶e̶d̶ saddened that they are still using a dead platform that's been abandoned by MS. Parallels to XP and the Wannacry ransomware fiasco should be enough warning for them to modernize.

Maybe you could run their Windows application, using Wine.

It would be nice if you could fool them that your Linux browser is actually running on a tablet or Android phone, since Silverlight is not a issue there, but I'm sure that copy-protection will rear its ugly head. There's a slim chance that if you have the Widevine browser plugin installed on Linux, and fool the service that you're on Android, it could work. Depends on how their system works, I guess.

the latest firefox (53) and chrome do not support silverlight anymore !!!!!!
So be sure you use an older version.

I do not want windows applications in my linux environment so I do not use wine.
on my pc I have windows with internet explorer and silverlight installed in virtualbox.
