Sorry!

Oh, and I updated my 'user agent' thread with two new user agents (Chrome desktop and Firefox desktop). I wasn't able to test them though, but they should work. Maybe one of those will help?
Fantastic Garrett, that worked perfectly!

I've installed the chrome desktop patch and BBC iplayer now works.

I've not noticed any other side effects, so I'm very happy, thank you very much for your help!

How do I send you a few pounds by way of thanks?

Hi JJUKJJ,

I changed the extension to .patch. After this change Internalz Pro recognises it and prompts you with an install button when opening the file.

The chrome user agent version works fine for me, same functionality and quality as before.

Thanks for the advice. iPlayer Big Screen worked fine so I'll keep the user agent patch in reserve.
