I was having the same problem until I tried the below:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash
$ sudo aptitude update
$ sudo aptitude install flashplugin64-installer
Once I restarted Firefox I was able to access iPlayer, ITV Player, Eurosport
The web page that I found it on (which I can't now find) suggested removing
"flashplugin-installer" prior to running this. I must admit that I didn't
and it does not appear to have caused me any problems.
