BBC i-player not working on Firefox

  bionicle 20:41 23 Nov 2010

I cant get BBC i-player to play any content when using my preferred browser Firefox 3.6.12. However it plays no problem with IE 8.

Any ideas?

Thanks Mat. Tried a couple of suggestions but still no joy.

Don't know why iPlayer won't work (I use Firefox exclusively) but try TVCatchup as an alternative click here
If you use Adblock Plus click here then you won't see the ads either.

As an afterthought try installing both of these click here click here

Thanks ashdav. Like TVCatchup but found it won't play either on firefox nor will video clips on bbc news but all play fine on IE8 including TVCathcup. I have reinstalled the most up to date flash and java but firefox still wont play video or radio.
