<div class="gmail_extra">Same here, except not only does iView not work in Mac iView also does not work in Linux.</div><div class="gmail_extra">Iview does however, work fine in Windows.</div><div class="gmail_extra"><br></div>
<div class="gmail_extra">The browser brand does not matter, Windows Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, they all work in Windows.</div><div class="gmail_extra"><br></div><div class="gmail_extra">The same browsers in Mac and Linux however do not play videos from ABC&#39;s iView.</div>
<div class="gmail_extra"><br></div><div class="gmail_extra">Adobe Flash has a large history of security problems which I only guess ABC is trying hard to work around by doing version checking when loading their videos.</div>
<div class="gmail_extra">However, Adobe publicly state that 11.2 is the last supported version for Linux or Mac platforms.</div><div class="gmail_extra">The latest flash version available for Windows is 11.9.</div><div class="gmail_extra">
<br></div><div class="gmail_extra">So based on that it would leave ABC in a quandry.</div><div class="gmail_extra">Keep maintaining a security flawed technology via version checking or alienate entire communities by making ABC Microsoft only.</div>
<div class="gmail_extra"><br></div><div class="gmail_extra">Hopefully they are looking at getting iView working again.</div><div class="gmail_extra">- - - -END copy and paste- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -<br>
