For those in the UK, ITV is is one of the main terrestial channels, aka Channel 3. But its catch-up service, ITV Hub will not play in Seamonkey. It's sister browser Firefox has no issues, and has an option for DRM support, which Seamonkey appears not to have. I suspect this might be at the heart of the problem, except Seamonkey plays all the other terrestial channel, BBC1, 2, Ch 4, and Ch 5 without any problem. I don't really want to switch to Firefox just occasionally to use ITV Hub.

Anyone experienced the same issue with ITV Hub w. Seamonkey and found a solution?

There isn't one. SeaMonkey doesn't use DRM and will not - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights_management

Channel 5, incidentally, also needs DRM to work. Hardly the end of the world to use Firefox for just this.
