If the only computer you have available is the Mac, I would suggest running the Slingbox using the Classic Desktop Player. It's a little hard to find, so I'll link the article below:
You would just want to skip the "update" portion, or else you'll run into the same problem. However, if you have a PC available, you can complete the regular steps there and you will be able to finish any changes without a problem.
I hope this helps!!
I also use a Mac and had the same issue. Until yesterday when the site didn't give me a choice but to install the new plug-in, I could watch via Mozilla browser without an issue. After downloading the plug-in and manually enabling it, it keeps bringing me back to the screen that is described above.
I also tried to follow the link you proposed, but it automatically redirects me to the slingbox.com main page.
Have you any suggestions?
I have an older model slingbox - ( SlingBox Pro, I think). I use a Macbook, and Firefox version 38.0.5
I received a message that there was a new version of the PlugIn. I downloaded and ran it. When I logged into the Slingbox site, it gave me the page that asked to Activate the PlugIn. I clicked the "Activate WebSlingPlayer" link; it then gave me the pop-up to "Allow and Remember", as expected. When I click the Allow and Remember button, nothing happens (other than the "Active WebSlingPlayer" link disappearing from the "box". When I check the permissions, it shows that the PlugIn is set to "Allow", but the process is frozen, and I can't watch TV.
Any idea what the problem is (anfd more importantly, what the fix is?
Also - When I look at the status of the plugin it shows:
- File: SlingPlayer.plugin
- Path: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/SlingPlayer.plugin
- Version: 188.8.131.525
- State: Enabled
- Web based SlingPlayer for streaming from Slingbox
