Maybe our puppy expert can help you, I will point him here
Hi, Madman. I'll see what I can do....no guarantees, mind..!
M-mm. I've never even heard of VUDU, I gotta confess. I've just been boning up on it, but I still ain't a whole lot wiser for my efforts..! From what I've been able to figure out, it's a more locked-down version of NetFlix and Amazon Prime. It appears that Linux support has been patchy for years.
I found a VUDU forum thread from 5/6 years ago, according to which it supported Linux at one point.....but there was a change at the helm, and although it would still play stuff, the powers-that-be had removed the ability to actually start things.
Apparently it's possible to watch it in 32-bit FireFox, by using 'User Agent Overrider', and fooling VUDU into thinking you're watching it in Windows, using IE-whatever-it-happens-to-be....10? 11? Up till a couple of releases ago, you were having to pull the same stunt with NetFlix in FireFox, to fool NetFlix into thinking you were watching it in Chrome..!
That kinda sounds like the best alternative to me. Also, it appears to be USA-only, meaning I can't test it here in the UK.....and I'm not keen on messing around with VPNs...!!
Give that a try, and see what happens. If it's 'no soap', we'll hafta figure out summat else, I guess.....
I know you prefer FF, 'cos ya said so to me. How did you actually install SlimJet, just out of curiosity? I'll bet you used the .deb, didn't'cha? You'd get on better with the Puppy-'tweaked' version of SlimJet, which has already had the 'running-as-root' issue taken care of. This one here:-
OscarTalks has been updating the 32-bit versions of SlimJet for quite some time. He takes care of many of the 32-bit Chromium-based browsers; I take care of the 64-bit versions. Again, it's a perfectly safe download. You want the second item down for Tahr 6.05.
There's a couple of alternatives for ya to try. Let us know what happens, please.
