    Windows 8


    I have a Fujitsu "Lifebook" running Windows 8. Initially, I had no problems streaming BBC iPlayer. However, it no longer seems to be able to do this. I will get only a short way into any programme beforeI get the "This content doesn't seem to be working" message. This is a new laptop barely a month old. What's the likeliest cause and is there a solution?
