Are you using the latest stable flash through the repo?

Flash from they website is out of date.

used to work just fine with Moonlight 2, then they replaced it with flash and now one cannot access it with pure open source. At any rate flash never treated me well, very choppy and crashy but I can't seem to track down the issue to a specific cause.

To watch ITVPlayer, I used to use the Firefox addon Caught Up (http://chris.orr.me.uk/caughtup/). But since ITV changed from using Silverlight to good old Flash, I can watch the content in my browser.

However I have had some problems. Sometimes I get just the audio while the flash screen remains black. I don't know why it happens, but it's only a small number of shows that are affected. In general, ITVplayer is fine.
