Clarets Player Commentary Help

6 October 2012

A guide to help you access live audio commentary following the website upgrade

It has come to our attention that a handful of Clarets Player subscribers are encountering issues accessing live commentaries since the switch to the new official website.
We believe this issue is caused by the new feature, enabling subscribers to pause / fast-forward / rewind live audio commentary.
To fully access this feature, is it essential you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, which can be downloaded free of charge HERE.

This should solve all access issues. However, if you encounter any further issues please follow the access guide below.
If you have further problems, please email customer support at
