FWIW - iView works for me on Centos-6 with
flash-plugin-126.96.36.1990-release.i386 ... although the quality is
worse than SD, even on a 10-Mb cable connection. It just not watchable
on a modern HD TV. Maybe it would be watchable on a phone.
SBS on the other hand, gives me a good HD picture, although I have no
idea if that's flash or something else.
