I can at least connect to the site, and I can see that the video is in Flash Player format. It will not work for me although I can normally play Flash video, possibly the problem is that I am outside their region.


At least by using Ubuntu we do not hit current problems with Flash 11.3

Live doesn't work for me as well on Linux (also doesn't work in Google Chrome), but I can watch individual programs.

I used the English site for better understanding (no live playing as well).

Question owner

thank you very much to all.

adrianaadela -- According to the website, you need to install the "cboxbeta2.2.0.0" software. Did you do that? I am in the process of installing that and I'll post my status once I finished the installation.

You might want to try it on your own to see if it works.

It don't look that the CBox software is available for the Linux platform.

cor-el -- No, it's only for Windows.

adrianaadela -- If you install the Firefox plug-in according to the website, you'll be able to watch it live within Firefox.

Or you can install the software, which you'll watch all the shows within the software instead of any browsers.

I have installed both and was able to watch live on either programs.

I've (tried to) deleted the duplicate post to clean up things (I still see it though).

The OP posted with a Linux (Ubuntu) user agent, so it seems that there is no solution possible.

cor-el -- Did you try to install the Firefox plug-in "CCTV player plugin for Fireox 1.10" to see if it works?

I'm on Linux as well, so it won't work for me.
