Error 5000/5001 on iplayer
When I try to play iplayer as of June 2022 it comes up with error 5000/5001. Other tv players are no longer playing either, Channel 4 for some time now. My laptop runs on Windows 8 and I have the latest version of firefox. In plug ins my codec is set on always activate as is Widevine CDM. I tried unchecking 'play DRM controlled content' in settings then checked it again and it has come up with Widevine CDM will be installed shortly, but nothing has happened.
many thanks, frances

iPlayer only for UK. see screenshot
I am in UK. The problem is with all tv channels plus radio now too. Poss to do with Adobe no longer supporting Flash player. Are there any alternatives?
I assumed you're in the UK, but I'm in the US of Guns and cannot test. Maybe someone here is also in the UK.
Thx anyway. Youtube videos seem to work fine, its just tv channels.
