Since you haven't tried to get Channel 4 at all, it hasn't been your job for 
even five minutes.

That is what I had consistently been saying.

Yes, I know.  If you look I specifically mentioned two specific channels.  
They are trying to stop people blocking adverts.  The third channel paid for 
by advertisements is fine on Google Chrome.  And if I can get my television 
to run catch-up on those two channels by running flashplayer-mozilla, however 
illogical that may seem to you, I shall do so, however experienced in other 
matters you may be and however much you may disapprove.  

I would willingly do something else, but the only other thing that has been 
suggested (elsewhere) is Pipelight, and that too has proved problematic.

And won't play Channel 4.

Nonetheless, flashplayer-mozilla works on my desktop and flashplugin-nonfree 
doesn't.  FOR THIS SPECIFIC CHANNEL.

That is completely irrelevant to my presented problem.
