I recently had trouble watching Hulu on my Arch machine and after searching around online I found that flash requires the use of the HAL program. This is how I worked around the problem.

h2. Prepare the Environment

* Make sure the system is up to date:
<pre>
sudo pacman -Syu
</pre>

* Install flashplugin:
<pre>
sudo pacman -S flashplugin
</pre>

h2. Install HAL

* Install HAL from the AUR:
<pre>
yaourt hal
</pre>

* Start and enable the HAL service at boot:
<pre>
sudo systemctl enable hal.service
sudo systemctl start hal.service
</pre>

* Clear your Flash cache by going to http://phtshp.us/2fZi and selecting *Delete all sites* under the Website Storage Settings panel

* Go to http://phtshp.us/aDzNKq in a web browser and click *Reset License Files*, then restart your browser
