    Did that allow you to watch under Ubuntu?

    No, I never had a working flash player on the chroot.

    PlayOn works with Netflix, hulu, amazon vod, etc. with KalemSoft Media Player & BHomePro, or the stock browser (using flash). I am running PlayOn in a WinXp 64bit virtual machine that cannot run netflix, on my ubuntu HTPC that also cannot run netflix. A little pricey at $5/mo, $30/year, or $79 forever.

    My current project is setting up a VPN to my home network, so I can stream media to the TP when I travel.

    Watching episode 1 of Downton Abbey right now via Amazon Prime stream.

    As previously mentioned, it works for certain shows/movies that apparently haven't (yet?) been converted to the new format that requires updated Flash and the access drm module. If that includes many of the ones you care about you're just lucky. Downtown Abbey just happens to be one that works. There are hundreds of shows that don't though, for example Star Trek TNG. It won't give you an error about Flash needing to be updated like the Playbook does, but will instead just sit there for a few minutes and then say "unable to connect."

    I doubt Adobe has any interest in ever releasing an updated plugin for webOS (unless by some miracle they happen to be contractually obligated to do so, which seems unlikely). As such this might never be resolved until or unless someone can somehow get the Linux or Android plugin working on webOS, or devise a usable method of running a full Linux browser with Flash under webOS. Either would be very diffcult and time-consuming at best.

    Or you could try to convince Amazon to turn the new DRM back off (fat chance).

    I spent some time on the site today with a friend's prime account and this was my experience. Abbey worked and some movies --ie Black Beauty, Ken Burn's Baseball. Many other movies did not work.

    Will be interesting to see if the linux kernel being released this month will help us.

    hmmn, thought a linux kernel might tie into being able to install a version of linux tha works on ARM and has capability to install browser version w flash working...

    As for me, i always use Roku2 to stream Amazon Instant Video. In addition, if you hope to copy or share your Amazon video purchases to anywhere, this Amazon video on demand DRM remover may benifit you.
