    ITVs answer to BBC iPlayer is now viewable on the Mac.

    It uses Microsoft's Silverlight which I had to install before being able to view the videos. 30 day catch up and has sporting events :)

    Quality is lower than the iPlayer at this stage.

    Excellent news and hopefully sufficient to stop Channel 4's excuses. Now if only ITV had anything worth watching ;)

    I agree, now that I have almost finished the Uni the only reason I use Parallels is to watch 4oD.

    In regards to ITV most of their stuff is rubbish but the addition of sport is brilliant, I often don't get to see GP2 so now I can watch it.

    Therefore the quality will ALWAYS be lower than iPlayer ;)

    Use With External Monitor???

    I have a question related to this.

    I've got a late 2008 MacBook which I use with an external monitor. When playing a Catchup video in the browser it plays on the monitor fine, but when I switch to fullscreen the video moves to my MacBook's screen. This happens in both Firefox and Safari.

    I looked to see if there were any Silverlight preferences I could alter to fix this but couldn't find anything. Every other video website I use - iPlayer, YouTube, Youku, Daily Show videos! - goes fullscreen on my external monitor no problem.

    Help? How do I get the ITV Catchup videos to play in fullscreen on my external monitor?

    :confused:

    The only thing I ever wanted to watch on ITV Player was Harry Hills TV Burp, and they don't even have that!

    Edit: Oh. This is an old thread.
