BBC iPlayer not streaming!

  Pine Man 17:50 12 Aug 10

I use BBC iPlayer for streaming programs so no download is necessary.

I last used it on Monday and it was ok. Today I tried it and even though I get the web page up I cannot stream any programs.

My default browser is Firefox but if I change to IE it works perfectly.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox but still no streaming.

Ok here with vista and firefox.

I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox and the only thing that has changed since Monday is the installation of the Tuesday Microsoft updates.

I have just tried Safari and it works on that ok as well.

Anything happened to your plug-ins? Try updating them, especially shockwaveflash.

I have tried updating and all are up to date but to be on the safe side I reinstalled shockwave flash - still no good:-(

Do you have no-script or ad-blocker or similar that might be blocking it?

  Pine Man 19:13 12 Aug 10

Only yes-script but that's been there for years.

So YouTube is ok but BBCi not?

  Pine Man 20:03 12 Aug 10

Yup - You Tube plays ok and so do the news clips on the BBC web site, which is my home page!

Got to go for my cup of cocoa and Coronation Street!!

In the morning I'll do a system restore to before the MS updates and see if that does anything.

Thanks for the advice so far.

Still think it's something to do with Firefox plug-ins or ad-ons.
Hope system restore works.
