    Firefox Users - Access Western TV

    I've just got hold of an add-on for firefox called mediahint

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...on/media-hint/

    I'm watching BBC player with it without a VPN ( i found that expat shield went down the pan) running in the back ground.

    Enjoy.

    Pleasantly surprised. I've seen a few things like this that are utter garbage.

    That's good to hear. I used Filmon, but the only issue with that is that you have to watch it live, so here, we're three hours ahead, so prime time shows are on at beddy-bye time.

    Not sure if I'm benefiting but I loaded Mediahint extension for SR Iron and I can watch BBC live.

    That being said I never really tried before.

    Just go to the site with the shows you want to see and they will play. You don't have to do anything else.

    It's working fine on chrome mate.

    Go to that link Alwarner showed you,
    MediaHint for Chrome Free Download
    Click Download
    Click External Mirror.

    Click "tools" in Chrome
    Click "extensions"
    Drag and drop the mediahint0.1.12.crt file from your download folder straight into that chrome extension page.

    Thats it

    You can also use this for Safari:

    "It's not possible to modify system proxy settings using current Safari extension API.
    However, it's very easy to configure Media Hint proxy manually. Open System Preferences > Network, select your internet connection, click Advanced > Proxies > Automatic Proxy Configuration and paste this URL: https://mediahint.com/default.pac

    It's also a good idea to create a new network location and use it just for Media Hint (at the top of Network preference pane click Location > Edit Locations, then duplicate existing or create a new one and name it "Media Hint").
    Then you can easily switch between Automatic (for normal browsing) and Media Hint through  menu > Location."

    Channel 4 - 4oD

    is pretty good.

    Lots of docs / drama / comedy.

    Edit: you need a UK post code, just google "restaurants in london" or something for an address.
