iplayer and flash player

  tristar 26 Oct 11

I've tried to catch up on a program using iplayer, which has been working fine in the past. Now I'm getting a message to install flash player to watch program. I've downloaded flash player 11 - but iplayer still won't work for me. Have I missed something?

Thank you, northumbria61. Tried the suggestions on the site you told me about, but with no luck, I'm afraid. In the end I downgraded to an earlier (working) version of firefox and now I can use flashplayer again.

I appreciate your suggestion, thank you. Regards, tristar.

Although not helpful to you I am using latest version of firefox with Flash player and Flash Player Active X version and all is ok.(did you download the updated Flash 11 suitable for Firefox?)

Just thinking out loud - are you watching iplayer programmes after you have downloaded them to bbc iplayer desktop? If so, do you have Adobe Air installed.

Try checking whether you have selected "Active-X FIltering" under the "Tools" menu in IE9. Selecting this will disable all Active-X functions, including Flash.
