View Full Version : [ubuntu] BBC iplayer no player for TV, but radio fine.

I am running ubuntu 9.04 and after updating recently I can't watch TV shows on BBC iplayer. Radio is fine and shows the flash iplayer were as TV shows or video doesn't show the player.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash via package manager and adobe website, but still no luck. Youtube and this are ok. I did see that when flash was uninstalled it didn't show the 'You need flash to watch this' on the TV/Video player (It was still missing) but did on the radio player.

I am running firefox.

I also have a seperare issue which I have seen in the forums. The video in full screen mode on iplayer (Before update) and youtube is choppy. I have turned off visual effects and used this workaround (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=7613395&postcount=1) with no luck.

If you need any more information please ask.
