Silverlight no longer activating as default player on mac

Had this before and got it fixed, but can't remember how I fixed it.

 

As usual after a mac update something breaks and silverligh no longer works on safari. Trying to play a video pops up a window telling me to install Now TV player. Now TV player sucks and doesn't work properly on a mac with sierra,

 

I reinstalled silverlight and cleared nowtv cookies, and safari is still set to use silverlight for the nowtv domain. 

 

How can i stop it asking me to install nowtv player and use silverlight?

 

Cheers

@MrGreen

 

I've got a feeling support has finally been pulled, as it's no longer working in Firefox ESR either and other posts seem to be pointing that way. Hopefully @Nicholas-M from the NOW TV Team will clarify if it's at all supported the next time he is on the forum.

@MrGreen I honestly don't know, but I can't get browser-based watching working on any browser this week (last week I could only get it working in Firefox ESR). I'm hoping the NOW TV Team post some clarification on the forum at some point, if I spot anything I'll let you know.

I had this exact problem before and did find a way of fixing it, but can't recall how I did it or find a solution through Google.

 

Reinstalling silverlight didn't work.

 

Apple updates so often break Safari.

Did you manage to get their player to work?

Hi,

 

I contacted the support and they said they were no longer supporting Silverlight.

 

I did try again to install their NowTV Player and this time it installed ok and seems to work - there's no mouse pointer hovering all the time so they must have fixed that.
