I'm trying to figure out why it is that Amazon Instant videos won't play and it seems to be related to DRM and the missing HAL. It looks like hal and libhal are all that is needed to get this working again.

HAL is considered end of life so it was removed from R8.
However I did not realize that it was needed for flash DRM so hal will be added back for 8.2
