No; I just tried it again. Initially the 'Seek video' came up as 0
seconds, but then reverted to around its earlier value. The remote
Volume control affects the TV's visual display but still no sound frpm
Sounds; all ok from iPlayer.
Firefox Version 3.1.2
More from the logs (typed in, copied from screen) :
AmazonSampleSource: Audio Codec mimetype=audio/mp4a-latm
Video Codec mimetype=x-unknown
Exoplayer doesn't support mime0type x-unknown
but the problem is in the Audio.
After more poking around in google I haave a feeling that this may be
DRM related. Hmm..
... but Sounds is ok in Firefox for Linux, so maybe not.
I had a response from the BBC:
