After upgrading to Windows 10 all my programs couldn’t access the internet including Firefox. The solution is to do a Windows Sockets reset.
- Open Command Prompt (Admin)
- Run: netsh winsock reset
- Restart PC
After the restart all the programs have internet access again. Also make sure they can connect through the Windows Firewall, some of the settings were changed after the Windows 10 upgrade.
BBC updated the iPlayer a couple of weeks ago and since than it stopped working. I get a black screen or a white screen, but no streaming.
It turns out that HTTPS Everywhere is responsible for this. The solution is to disable it for the BBC website and try to stream it without the secure connection.
Also make sure that the latest MVPS hosts file is not blocking some bbc.co.uk pages. This is turned on by default.
