Any Luck with Move Player - ABC Streaming


My mother alerted me to an issue she was having the other day. I've tried to solve but cannot for some reason.

The US broadcast network ABC has streaming video of their current shows. My mother was trying to watch one at: http://dynamic.abc.go.com/streaming/landing. Of course, it redirected her to install a Windows-only thing from Move Networks (http://www.movenetworks.com/company/contactus) which forced her to abandon watching.

Any of you experience this? Any ideas on a work around?

For the meantime, I taught her how to use bittorrent and watch shows that way, but still, this seems odd.

FWIW, she's running openSUSE 10.2, Firefox 2.0.x, MPlayer and has a 6 mb/sec FIOS connection. (Meanwhile, I'm on a pokey 3 mb/sec DSL connection.)

If you use Konqueror, go into the settings and to the configure browser setting. You can then tell Konqueror that it should identify itself as IE6 to that site. I believe that Firefox has a plugin which does the same thing.
