My guess would be its your ISP firewall. Windows uses port 1935 to stream video, however I'm 99% certain that iOS 4 and Mac OS X uses a different port, but I know not which one. If anyone finds out which port it is, I would be very grateful as it would mean my iPad wouldn't be crippled in school

What proxy have you got or use, as above firewall ?
Also on OS X ( by default it should be disabled ) but worth while checking if it is disabled , do you have an OS X Server to push down restrictions ( if so is this forcing the firewall to be enabled or anything like that ) ?
Not sure if its related at all but I do know there was at least one thread where someone was having issues trying to get iphone or ipads working and had to add a specific itunes URL to the proxy / firewall server so as to allow them to communicate correctly and work with iTunes for the App Store etc
All latest software updates on the mac ie 10.6.5 I believe is the latest.
Also I presume you have DNS, Domain ( FQDN ) etc configured in network settings and how have you got proxy settings configured.

Mac OS X also uses port 1935 (for iPlayer), but should fall back to using port 80 if 1935 is blocked. You can check this yourself with the LSOF command in Terminal (shown in blue below).

Have you tried the 'big screen' version of iPlayer? It's specifically designed for iPad's.

If it is a case of Flash not using your proxy settings - pretty likely - you can check that by using a third party proxy tool like Proxifier - Bypass firewall and proxy, tunnel connections through an HTTPS and SOCKS proxy (free demo) to send all the browser traffic (including Flash) via your chosen proxy. If it works via that then it'll be Flash ignoring the proxy settings, doesn't get you much further forward, but at least narrows down the problem

Out of interest, have you tried uninstalling Flash Player completely? One way you can do this is go into your /Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder and delete the three files listed below.
To re-install Flash Player, download this file, open the DMG and then double-click the installer.
