Dont know if anyone can help? I have tried searching google in vain to help me try and fix this problem but to no avail. It was ok couple of days ago as I was watching Ratatouille on my pc using latest firefox but this weekend I keep getting the Media selection request failed after I have clicked the iplayer pink play box on every piece of content on the iplayer site. I have tried IE but then I have loading issues but I prefer firefox and wish it to be sorted. My only thoughts are somehow I may of blocked access either by my windows defender or av software but I usually have to authorise everything and it never appeared after watching Ratatouille!!
However this happened I do not know but after trying my laptop to see if it had same problems ( i only use my laptop as a backup ) i had to update flash. Fair enough I dont browse on it much anyway so after I upgraded to 11 on my laptop it worked! So i went ahead and tried on my PC version 11 and ( for ) now it works. As it through up the media selection....... I never thought updating Flash would be the issue as usually it says you require xx.xx.xx version and I was running 10 unaware 11 was available. Hope this can continue to help others who may have the same issue I did and not ruin their sunday night as it has mine
The BBC might have upgraded the embedded player over the last few days which might run on a newer version of Flash but as you said, you would usually be told that Flash needed upgrading rather than getting an error.
