I use a MacbookPro to watch TV and am having problems with live ITV 1 - all other ITV channels work OK as does ITV catch up and all BBC services.
When I try to play live ITV 1 on Safari I just get the continual 'Refresh' or 'Help' window - when I refresh nothing happens. All other ITV stations and catch up play OK.
When I try to play live ITV 1 on Chrome I also get the 'Refresh' prompt but notice in top right it also says 'Plug in blocked' - I have tried the one time use option as well as mange etc but still have the same problem.
Any help advice please
OK - my laptop is a 2017 MacBook Pro using MacOS high Sierra - I generally use Safari as the browser - do you need anything else ?
Also for your info my partner has an iPad and all live stations play OK on that it is just ITV 1 on my Macboom Pro
You need to both install and enable Flash Player in order for it to work.
if you haven't installed Flash Player (or it's out of date), you can grab the latest one from here: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer
At that point, you can enable Flash Player using the following instructions:
If that doesn't work, you may need to experiment with other browsers:
I believe I have the latest Flash player, issue 29, installed and enabled as up until last evening everything, including ITV 1 were working perfectly.
I will of course check again and then follow your instructions to reinstall and enable Flash presumably after uninstalling it ??
Again I would say that apart from ITV ! live, all other ITV and BBC services work perfectly.
Also my partner has an iPad which plays ITV 1 perfectly via the same router and network.
Any further comments please ?
for now we have no idea if these websites use Flash or html5 for their videos.
what menu show with right click on the video?
The problem with ITV is that it's geo-restricted, and I don't have VPN endpoint in the UK.
The interesting questions are all in the vein of "what's different between your computers?"
Thanks for your help but somehow ITV 1
is now working again OK as are all their
stations and other channels.
The answers to your points however are
- Yes & yes
- Yes the same
- When in incognito mode the same problem
Perhaps it was a glitch of some kind- again

No problem. It definitely sounds like the issue was on the content provider's end. That's really hard to determine from where you or I sit, so all we can do is check the stuff that we can see. In general, if "everything else" is working fine but a specific property, that's a good indication that it's not you.
I have already done it but the same problem of the original poster persists with any browser - Chrome, Opera, IE.
Can you help me?
