I recently noticed that I could not watch any video streams or video clips from the BBC home pages.
So I checked the the site of our national TV company. Same result. I couldn't watch any archived programs. Same thing with one of our commercial TV stations. Programs that I had been able to watch only a week ago didn't work anymore, and this regardless of browser.
I can watch YouTube videos, live television from my TV card, and files in every imaginable video format on my hard disk. I just can't see any video on the home pages of any TV station.
So what has changed? And quite recently?
I did install the pae version of the 188.8.131.52 kernel when it appeared in the repository but I get the same result with three older kernels. I did play with the Phonon settings some days ago, but only with the sound settings. And of course the Nvidia drivers were updated recently -- but in most applications video works perfectly.
Then I just noticed that my webcam has stopped working in Skype, while it still works perfectly in apps like vxCam. I've no idea whether this could be a related problem.
So has this happened to anybody else?
And I forgot to mention that I'm running KDE 4.6.1.
