Unable to play video clips on BBC website.

The circle starts to turn in the video box but after a few seconds I get a message:-

Sorry, you need Flash to play this. Enable it on your browser or download Flash Player here.

How do I fix this? I've downloaded and installed Flash Player as advised but still get same error message. I'm using Google Chrome Version 49.0.2623.112m and Windows XP.

I've got into the contents section but there is no Flash section there in the list but I notice that in the Plug-Ins section there's something related to Adobe Flash Player and also Native Client, both were disabled. Unfortunately even after enabling these items I still can't get the video clips to run. ie, same error message.

Update: it's hit-an-miss at the moment, some of the clips are now playing as normal but many still refuse to play. Very odd.

Happens to me sometimesvwith Firefox as well but using edge gives an option to allow Flash every time and they will play, also happens with rasio

Yeah, I came across this info while searching for a solution to my problem. Looks like XP users will be affected.
