I have 64 bit, it works fine. (yes, on bbc, sometimes bbc uses real 
player instead of flash and if you don't have realplayer plugin 
installed, you can't see it.)
The spinning circle thingy is when it is buffering up and if you can't 
play, you don't have enough bandwidth or the bbc servers too busy.

Back to your lulu.com, I still think it's the javascript somehow. Flash 
is not a problem if you can get youtube. But I cannot be certain what's 
causing it.
