I'm trying to watch a video from a local TV station, made available via the web. I get the message "content unavailable".
The station says
Video shows the message "content unavailable"
This may occur because you have set up a third party DNS service for your computer – such as Open DNS or Google Public DNS. Our video player uses your DNS information to detect if you are accessing from Australia or abroad. By using a third Party DNS server, our video player will detect an international DNS and think that you are accessing from abroad and thus block the content.
SBS recommends the use of your ISP’s internal DNS servers instead of using third party DNS services. This will ensure that you are being redirected to the nearest and fastest media servers for best video watching experience. In doubt please contact your ISP’s customer service.
The ADSL modem is set up to get DNS automatically from the ISP. My wife can view the video I'm trying to watch on her Win 7 laptop, going through the same ADSL modem.
Is there any possibility that LMDE is overriding the default DNS, and if so, how do I find out what DNS service I'm using ?
