That's it! I disallowed everything in the Flash settings on the rig where the BBC video did work and Bang! -no more streaming video from BBC.

Now I will do the reverse on this rig. :)

Yup! Allow for some storage and the BBC video works again. :)

Update: Photobucket works, too.

I tried looking at the source for the BBC page, and danged if I can recognize a link to the media file...

As for uninstalling/installing, I have a hard time believing that will help as other sites work fine...

This just suddenly happened, and I am now leaning towards the player these sites are using...

Not sure what it is, but it is only certain sites, and only in the last 10 days or so...

Something 'changed'...

OK...

Now don't I have to go to a webpage to change settings in Flash?

Hmmm. That's a new one for me. I don't have anything of the sort on my Mac. That must be a 'Mac thing'. I've never seen it (or looked for it) on a PC either.

BINGO!

Thanks a bunch!

Now the question still remains, is why this suddenly became an issue...

Was it a Flash update that came through with different default settings, or is it suddenly an update to the player that these sites use that now requires different local settings?

Hmmm...

I read somewhere about the privacy settings for flash player and changed my settings some time ago. I never noticed tat certain videos didn't play since I don't watch a lot; Youtube every now and then and that site is not using storage on users rigs.

You must have been fiddling with your settings like 10 days ago?

What if you go to this URL, Larry? http://www.macromedia.com/support/docum ... ger03.html
The settings are done there on that site (and sent to your local machine of course). I don't know if this only applies to Windows versions of the Flash player..
