    Have you whitelisted the BBC News website in NoScript?

    Incidentally, I use FF and can access that page without any problems. I should add that I am using OpenDNS; dunno if there is an issue using my ISP's DNS.

    Have you uninstalled VLC recently? The Firefox/SeaMonkey plug-in won't allow BBC flash videos until you either uninstall VLC or re-install & don't check the box in the installation wizard for running VLC in Firefox.

    The /cgi-bin/ is an ideal place to hide Web Based Malware

    The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is an method for the Web Server Software to represent the generation of web pages
    to executables. The files are called CGI scripts. They are programs, sometimes stand-alone applications, and are
    authored through scripting language software such as Perl, PHP, and other scripting languages.

    The Web Server supporting CGI can be configured to interpret the URL that it serves as an reference to CGI scripts.
    The Web Server creates an subset of the environment variables passed to it, the standard input, and appends details
    specific to the execution of the CGI program to the standard input. CGI programs are capable of generating any
    content. After appending that content to the standard input, the Web Server then transmits the Web Page executable
    to the Browser with the details specific to the CGI program along with, or without, and/or edited, standard output.

    Well, I'd consider updating, mainly for security reasons if I were you.

    Have you been feeding the gremlins after midnight again? ;)

    The only reason I asked about whether you'd whitelisted the BBC News website was that when I tested NoScript the flash videos on the that site wouldn't work for me unless I either whitelisted or temporarily allowed the scripts to run on there.

    To be honest, I think that the Beeb are experimenting a bit with their flashplayer.

    @ HKEY1952

    Thanks for explaining :thumb:

    @ TonyW

    Videos on the BBC wouldn't work for me directly without allowing Scripts etc, but they did via Anonymouse. Did you try it without Scripts etc via Anonymouse ?

    @ Daveski17

    It's possible they are experimenting. At least they work for me now, not that i watch many though. I always wondered why i could never view them before, even with Everything enabled.

    I've never used Anonymouse so can't help you there, sorry.

    I don't know if it's the reason why you can use it now, but the overall form of the player seemed to go through a series of stages in size & format recently. I even viewed it in different browsers to check if it wasn't just a browser related change. I'm glad its working for you now though.
