Thanks for that very useful information. I often use BBC iPlayer and I have been wondering about channels 4 and 5 and their on demand system. Now I know not to bother.On 29/11/13 07:46, Tom wrote:I have just installed chrome (having installed and uninstalled it after a trial many times) purely for the fact that some of their free and open books will only download on chrome. Tom te tom te tomI didn't even have much luck with that: I wanted to watch a documentary I missed the other day on C5 on demand, and unlike BBC iPlayer, their crappy website (like the C4 on demand website) is heavily DRM laden so Firefox+flash just doesn't work. So against my better judgement I briefly installed Chrome (and then Chrome-Beta, and then Chrome-Testing) thinking that surely their much vaunted built-in Flash would be able to handle it: not a chance. I apt-get purged them straight off my system after that disappointment. I actually ended up having to watch them in a VirtualBox XP instance, in full screen, running Internet Explorer. Bizarrely, it actually works well enough to watch DRM-laden streams.
