I just read this on arstechnica.com.
Although SWF Verification is principally intended to serve as a barrier to piracy, it also blocks regular users from legitimately viewing content with open source video players. Fans of the popular XBMC media center application have discovered that the application can no longer be used to watch iPlayer content.
Yep I know all about this… But I never factored in this part…
If this is true, I’m frankly embarrassed. I will investigate whats happened on this front.
