#1502 Un-breaking Channel 5 On Demand (UK)

filters (152)

Privoxy on its default settings breaks Channel 5 On Demand streaming of content. The error message over any video is:
"There seems to be a problem with the advertising on this video. Please make sure you have any ad-blocking software switched off."
Any UK users found a way of fixing this without turning off Privoxy entirely? I've tried various things in the past, such as adding the site to the fragile list, but I just run into more problems.

I'd be grateful if someone could present a solution :)

    Usually the solution to problems like this is analyzing the log after enabling the debug directives recommended at
    http://www.privoxy.org/user-manual/contact.html#CONTACT-BUGS and fiddling with the configuration until the "ad-blocking software" warning is no longer triggered.

    Trying again with the most recent Privoxy version (3.0.19) shouldn't hurt either. While I don't remember any Channel-5-specific fixes, it's possible that some of the generic fixes make a difference.
