    Unable to watch Sky Sports online stream

    Dear all,

    I have recently installed my Ubuntu 13.04 OS on my Dell Insprion 7520 laptop.

    Everything works fine so far, except for one thing. When trying to watch the online stream of Sky Sports, it tells me I need to install Silverlight - which is fine. Problem is, after I installed Moonlight (equivalent of Silverlight for Linux) and restrated my browser and even my computer, it still tells me on Sky Sports that I am missing Silverlight. Which is odd to say the least as when I checked my add-on list for the browser, Monolight was displayed as installed, enabled and working. No matter what I do, Sky Sports keep asking me to install Silverlight (/Moonlight). What should I do?

    Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated on this matter.

    The site is probably testing for Silverlight in a way that excludes Moonlight/Linux (I'm not saying they're doing that on purpose, though it's certainly possible). Other than writing to the site admin or running a browser through WINE, I don't see a lot of options..
