I' ve bought a Macbook pro not so long a go, it's running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1 but the Microsoft Silverlight plugin does not seem to work, I tried everything.. Reinstalling, rebooting, installing Flip4mac. Uninstalling everything correctly and installing only the plugin.. I tried different browsers; google chrome, firefox, opera, safari nothing worked.. The plugin is ofcourse installed correctly, I even tried running the browsers in 32bit mode (which was advised at a different forum).. Flash movies are not a problem btw.. I need to use the silverlight plugin to view back TV broadcast from my country.. It does not give an error when I load the movie it just give me a black screen (and no sound) and says closed...
Does anyone know what to do about it?
Would be much appreciated

As you know, Silverlight is copy protection technology and perhaps it's not authorizing you to see the content.
Thanks for your responds guys,
I took a look at http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/default.aspx
Watched the demo ( http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/iis-smooth-streaming/demo/#/on-demand )
It gives me no video (black screen) but it do gives me audio. When I go to the Silverlight section it says I have the latest version.. Also when I go to case-studies section for example I am able to see the still pictures...
I am kinda an apple-noob, maybe I am making some rookie mistake?
Thanks again for taking time to help me solve the problem..
I have the exact same problem. Silverlight will not work in any of my browsers, despite trying to reinstall, delete previos versions etc etc etc.
I am also trying to watch TV broadcasts and that's when the problem starts. Chrome just crashes, while safari goes blank (and sometimes reports of a plugin problem)
I have tried accessing the same website from a different mac, and they seem to be working well there.
i followed someone else's advice (kinda) and found all the silverlight files in "INVISIBLE FILES".
In the Finder, choose File > Find or press Command (⌘)-F.
From the far-left pop-up menu (labeled “Kind”), choose Other.
In the list of search attributes, select the “File invisible” checkbox, and then click OK.
In the related menu, choose Invisible Items.
once loaded go to folder Private
then to folder VAR
then folder db
theb folder Receipts
scroll to any com.microsoft.silverlight item and delete. there are a bunch of them.
close, restart and install silverlight.
Am also having issues with silverlight that I did not have yesterday. No change in any parameter. Have uninstalled and re-installed, rebooted, can see the plug-in under library etc etc. Tried your advice...not one com.microsoft.silverlight item in that folder? Any thoughts on why that would be? Thanks
Had the same problem with www.uitzendinggemist.nl, installed Silverlight after clicking on the link that the website (uitzendinggemist.nl) provided, but to no avail.
The solution is to install the correct (latest) Sliverlight version, which worked in my case. I installed VERSION 5.
Link to version 5: http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/default.aspx
WebTV(.xs4all.nl) worked fine.
Until it started nagging about 'install silverlight plugin'
It just showed me a black screen with a (xs4all) provider logo.
And guess what: installing did not work.
tried this, tried that.
Then in the Microsoft Silverlight app
I deleted all the websites in 'application storage'.
That did the job.
Macbook pro, Mountain Lion.
