Bug Description


I use debian sid and :

$ apt-cache policy pipelight-multi
  Installé :
  Candidat :
 Table de version :
 *** 0
        500 sid/main amd64 Packages

I create a little dirty patch to view live TV for Bouygues on my debian TV (adsl provider in France)
Not happy with the ViewRightWebInstaller with current pipelight ...

Here is the patch :

$ cat diff_ViewRightWebInstaller.patch

$ pipelight-plugin --list-enabled

It runs fine on my debian ... i think lot of linux user will happy to use
this patch instead of installing genymotion ...

Perhaps we can create a new plugin : viewright-bouygues ?

I think there is no problem in adding an additional viewright plugin, but I fear that we also need to implement some protection against enabling multiple viewright plugins. As far as I know (I don't have access to any viewright services) you can't install multiple versions of ViewRight at the same time, so they would overwrite each other. This might cause a problem if you enable multiple viewrights plugins and Pipelight tries to update them.

I am not yet sure what would be the best solution since we might need to change the way how Pipelight installs plugins anyway. Firefox has some timeout for loading plugins which causes problems for some people. On the other hand, Firefox is going to drop support for NPAPI in about a year, so not sure if it makes sense to rewrite Pipelight any more.
