I have been watching BBC programes using BBC iplayer for a long time using firefox as the browser - after a microsoft set of updates the iplayer worked with everything but would not play the actual programs - I reinstalled the iplayer programme and got the same result - however if I copy the addresses to IE it all works - (note - dont think you can play programs outside UK)
