Some more Information, I tried again yesterday at 4.55pm with the 
following plug-ins enabled in Firefox, IcedTea-Web 1.5, VLC Multimedia 
Plugin 3.10.1 and Windows Media Player Plugin 10 but still no joy.

So today I've enabled the remaining three plug-ins, DivX, 
Quicktime Plug-in 7.6.6 and Shockwave Flash and will try again.

Did the AWM outsource this mini-project?

Is the live video stream really licensed under a Creative Commons 
Attributions 3.0 Australian License?
