cant play bbc news items on website

i know it is late but i have been lucky with "night watchers" before all i get in the play window on the bbc website where it says watch any news item etc i get what would normally be the viewing screen but with a little box in the top left with three colours and nothing else, i suspect this is allied to a pic prob but if i can sort this first it would be nice,
thank you in advance.

do you have real player installed? I think the BBC news site uses that for most of its videos, unfortunately

You can usually select WMP or RealPlayer (realalternative here click here).
Which do you usually use?

thanks for that i do and it plays other items with no probs.

the website does not give me a choice of player but immediately goes to the screen that i have previously described.

Cleared your browser cache? Is there a specific video that's a problem, or all of them?

Just clicked this click here and it's not appearing...

Appeared eventually, with WMP/Realplayer choice.
