Who is America - Channel 4 on demand- Cannot stream it

27
Found 18th Jul
I'm trying to watch "Who is America":
channel4.com/pro…ica

I've opened an account with channel4.com, enabled Flash on Firefox and disabled all adblockers.


All I can see is a rotating circle in the middle of the screen and nothing more. My broadband connection is quite good and I never had any problem streaming videos.

Is it just me?

I watched it on the app via fire TV, its very funny.
I should have mentioned this is on a laptop, not Android.
No idea, but didn't realise it was available in the UK! Totally going to watch it, so glad I don't have to use a US Smart DNS or VPN to watch it , thanks for the unintentional heads up!
Try it on Chrome?

No, because Flash doesn't work on Chrome.

It still does, though I remember Google saying it doesn't. You just have to click to enable Flash now.
In chrome you enable flash and turn off your ad blocker (if you're using one).
Episode 1 is on channel 4 tonight at 11.

But the problem is not Flash. It is that the bloody thing just doesn't even start!

You're welcome. Are you going to share with us if you have watched it and what browser you used, as I haven't got a useful answer yet?
was mostly disappointed with 1st episode, was one very funny bit in last five mins but it seem mostly wrong him sat playing characters taking the piss when the freaky interviewees were actually just mostly gullible fools,
Most of his targets would probably end up institutionalised/commited if at a party they entered into a serious discussion with a doctor a priest and a policeman

I will probably be using my PS4 or Smart TV, not a browser.
I was able to install Flash Player on Chromium: same result. Only a spinning wheel but no stream!

Doesnt work on my Firefox through Linux, but does work on my Firefox through Windows.

I don't think it's something you can spoof. I think there's something that's missing from the OS which needs added first.

If you search Google for "Linux 4od" it'll show it's a common issue and there's some suggested solutions.

Thanks. I have WINE installed. I'll install Chrome and Firefox for Windows on WINE and see what happens.

I took the easy option and recorded it last night. Quite a funny programme
