Pipelight is a wrapper for using Windows plugins in FreeBSD browsers
and therefore giving you the possibility to access services which
are otherwise not available for FreeBSD users.
WWW: http://www.pipelight.net/
Categories: emulators
Maintainer: ports@FreeBSD.org
This port installs the Pipelight plugin wrapper for running Silverlight,
Flash and others. Before enabling Pipelight for your users, run the
following as root:
# pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins
For users running with ZFS on root, watching DRM protected content
requires extensive xattr support. If you run into issues with DRM failing,
you can use the "pipelight-mkufs" command to create a UFS formatted ZVOL
mounted on your users ~/.wine-pipelight directory.
To create the UFS filesystem
# pipelight-mkufs <username>
To remove the UFS filesystem
# pipelight-mkufs --delete <username>
===>   NOTICE:
The pipelight port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
more likely to have unresolved issues, not be up-to-date, or even be removed in
the future. To volunteer to maintain this port, please create an issue at:
