Watching Prime Video in HD resolution

Hello.
Today I've made a script and it's installing Chrome and wine-staging itself. If you don't want to install from script, there is a file about how to installing wine-staging and Chrome.
So, I can watch Prime Video in HD resolution.
I wanted to share that.
You can check the github page: https://github.com/nxjosephofficial/primevideo-linux

Re: Watching Prime Video in HD resolution

sudo pacman -Sy curl wine-staging winetricks

That amounts to partial updates and is a very bad idea.
Remove the y and it's safe.

curl --location --request GET 'https://www.slimjet.com/chrome/download-chrome.php?file=files%2F90.0.4430.72%2FChromeStandaloneSetup.exe' --output /home/$USER/Downloads/Chrome.exe

slimjet.com appears to be home of a browser and not related to google or amazon .
Why are you downloading from a 3rd party instead of an official chrome download site ?

Welcome to archlinux forums.


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Also, my XDG directories are localised, so $USER/Downloads doesn't exist.

Re: Watching Prime Video in HD resolution

Assuming /home/$USER/ is not a good assumption, either.

Editing pacman.conf like that is really bad, too. What if multilib is already enabled?

Welcome to archlinux forums.

Thanks for your idea about removing y. You're right.
Because the latest version of Chrome doesn't work, so i had to download older version of Chrome and i found slimjet.com .

I appreciate your welcome.

I decided to that, installing from script isn't good idea. I also put a guide file there named install.md .

I agree with you. It's enabling multilib again.

Re: Watching Prime Video in HD resolution

Also bear in mind that just running...

sudo pacman -S curl wine-staging winetricks

won't be able to find the wine packages if multilib wasn't already enabled. You'll need to run a full system upgrade.


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Re: Watching Prime Video in HD resolution

Update packages:

sudo pacman -Sy

That should be -Syu, not -Sy. Lone_Wolf already went over that above. The -y option only syncs databases, the -u option updates.

Re: Watching Prime Video in HD resolution

Does that work? I have a solution with version 96, but needed to include

PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60

in a shortcut before the wine-command because otherwise the sound would stutter.

I didn't have a problem with sound, so I don't know.

In a Manjaro Forum a guide says;

"[Fix] The audio will be crackling, to fix this open the desktop file and add PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 at the start of the Exec= section."
