Ironically, not viewable on Linux (at least not on this CentOS box.
(and as it's not my machine I can't install better players on it))

Reminds me of the time I wanted to watch something on the BBC website
about building a computer, but couldn't as it needed ActiveX. That
program suggested installing Linux as well. When I complained, I was
told to download ActiveX and go away. Ah the BBC we make it what it
is. (Incidentally I did find a way around the ActiveX problem by
viewing source and finding exact address of stream. Just goes to prove
the BBC didn't need ActiveX and the sole reason for doing it was to
strength a foreign monopoly)
