CBC TV iOS App - SOLUTION:

PROBLEM:

For some months, presumably since some update or other, I have been unable to get CBC Player to play videos: they appear to load but never actually start running. I have been through ALL the troubleshooting suggestions on the CBC and Adobe Flash Player websites, with no luck. A Google search shows that many other people cannot get CBC player to work either, but I haven't seen any solution to the problem posted. I have no trouble with the video players on the CTV and TVO sites, which also use Flash Player.

So what is different about CBC player? Of course it's impossible to get any technical help from the CBC, which is ridiculous enough in itself. Does anyone know the secret to getting this thing to work??? 


SOLUTION:

CBC updated their player a few months ago to block ad blocker add-onsyou have to disable it in order to watch the videos. Its design that if you want to watch their videos, you'll have to watch their ads first. Don't be surprise that CTV or Global updating their site with this feature in the near future.
