Hey all,

So, you may have noticed that as of this morning the Lightbox player on Google Chrome (for Mac & Windows) no longer uses Silverlight. We've released an HTML5 player for Chrome, given that Silverlight support for Google Chrome is being deprecated. 

So, please give it a go, and feel free to PM me with any feedback. As always, the more detail (device/OS/steps to reproduce etc) the better.

I gave it a go this evening, on a Windows 10 laptop. I tried it because Lightbox now crashes IE11 all the time (after a 'display mixed content' prompt).
Chrome was poor, unwatchable quality. Picture constantly freezing.

Sorry, Lightbox, but compared to every other streaming service I have used, your compatability is dreadful. No way I'll renew after my free period ends.

Maybe you could make the web player chromecast optimized, to work the way the phone app does
