Fwd: Hulu support for jessie and future linux distributions.

You'll have to forgive me I'm unable to communicate clearly most of the time.

Back in September ~13 Hulu stopped working and there was a simple work
around, the following javascript bookmark cased an old player to be
loaded.  The old player has since been upgraded leaving no way that I
know to play Hulu.  The flashplugin requires an older version of
hal(known as the hal hack) to play Hulu and it's not a possibility as
new hal versions are depended on by other pkgs.

javascript:function getURL() { var links =
document.getElementsByTagName("link"); for (var i=0; i < links.length;
i++) { if (links[i].getAttribute("rel") == "media:video") { return
links[i].getAttribute("href"); } } return ""; } function main() {
window.open(getURL()); } main();

http://www.hulu.com/embed.html?eid=MSsiYiNS2_ix0dgvIz5N2w  error 3336.
Using some javascript bookmark was the workaround, that reveals uris
like the above.
Using Debian Jessie Chromium/peperflash.

ice-weasel has a bug where the binary flash-plugin can't link against
a newer, now dependent, hal library.  Resulting in a 2203 error code,
lower numbers appear to indicate and earlier position in the code.
This bug is in the flash-plugin, regardless of what browser loads it.
