I tried Pipelight and it works on Parliament TV. Oddly enough, when you
do install it, and only once it is installed and functioning, links
appear allowing you to switch to "Windows Media" aka Totem or Flash
Players. Slightly backwards considering the purpose of those links, but
I don't think the Government Digital Service has gotten its hands on the
Parliament.uk website yet.
