Hi
looking to smarterize my dads TV with a PI to enable him to watch his  
football on TV rather than his laptop screen.

currently playback of uploaded video interviews to his club site work  
well but the streamed content provided by I follow simply will not play.

Any suggestions on what may be required to get this working, or even  
simply how to start diagnosing the issue.

currently using a stock raspian install but that is not essential any  
other Pi Distro would be acceptable if needed

Did I SELL OUT yet??

On what? What is "I follow"?
Do you mean "Ifollow"?

No doubt it is one of these 'DRM protected you p[ay and it barely works  
on a PC' type of things

It would seem that its a fairly crap but stock HTML or flash delivery

Probably easiests to use he PI HDMI and invest in a radio  
'mouse-and-keyboard' type controller and use the TV like a big monitor.

But is it a smart TV?

Sorry maybe I was not clear
uploaded interviews play fine on a Pi3B+, streamed videos fro iFollow  
fail to start & simply hang.

Yes

Again yes, but he does have an account & it works with his laptop which  
runs Fedora so it is not a window V Linux compatibility issue.

hav not checks the flash support & the pi is using chromium so that may  
be the issue, will give it a try anyway - thanks

Could you mirror the desktop to the pi with a remote desktop,
like VNC or RDP-ish stuff ?

possibly , would it be fast enough?, guess there is only on way to find  
out.
x forwarding may also be an option the question is could my dad cope with  
it - needs to be pretty idiot proof.

Dont go x-forwarding. You need gigabit nework speeds and a lot of CPU to  
do that effectively for full screen video. DAMHIKT

Frankly I'd lean towards resurrecting some old 32 bit machine from a  
dumpster, slapping in a decent video card and installing x86 linux with  
a remote keyboard and mouse...

Ok now at least the problem is clear.

It seems that the Ifollow works on Fedora/laptop linux, but not on Pi linux.

So the real issue is why that is.

Are you using identical browsers?

Is the Ifollow a flash app? Mmm. Seems it is.

Chromium on the pi has Flash support in built I think.

Have you enabled Flash for the sites?

version

Have you thought about OSMC or LibreELEC on the Pi? Or even a NowTV  
Stick/Box?

I suspect the simplest answer is to cast the laptop to the tv via a  
chromecast, other opinions are available.
