BBC Flash Streaming (News, iPlayer etc)
So how do people do it? Since the beeb has moved over to flash streaming our system has stopped playing the videos. Now I can get flash streaming from youtube and any other website but not the bbc.
So far I have found this:
It will work going straight out on the internet bypassing proxy and firewall.
It will work going though the proxy but bypassing the firewall.
It won't go out bypassing the proxy but using the firewall.
It won't go though using the proxy and the firewall.
So it must be a firewall problem. I have nmap'd the beeb (sorry pls don't come and get me:eek:)and all other things I could think of but it hasn't helped.
I have done the following with the firewall:
Let out just the IPs of the beeb servers that I have found - didn't work
Let out the whole IP range (I know I know) - but it didn't work
Opened the ports up that the iPlayer posted to need - didn't work
Opened up all the ports I scanned - didn't work
Everything is now back to closed, but I am really getting annoyed now, as alot of staff and students use the information on the site.
