You need to install the Google Chrome with Flash player package… I works out of box…

Most important thing is Firefox won’t work with Hotstar… :wink:

youtube videos are playing in firefox,chromium perfectly. only hotstar videos doesn’t play

Hotstar is one of the best streaming sites, mostly I stream it for GOT and other Disney movies. But without VPN you can’t access Hotstar outside India. Many VPNs can access the Hotstar but not every VPN does. You can secure your online activities. If you want to know which VPN is the best for Hotstar that can access you Hotstar outside India and also secure you online. Here hope this helps:

The issue is not with your system.
Hotstar uses a version of flash that isn’t supported on Linux anymore.
The issue is with their flash player.

If you still want to watch videos on Linux (Firefox or Chrome), you can visit

This is based on the open sourced Flowplayer

I can watch Hotstar anytime with FastestVPN which giving me buffer free high-quality streaming try it.
