How to get BBC iplayer working

Postby DZWRambo » June 14th, 2011, 10:53 am

Hi

I have managed to get BBC iplayer to work on my device for on demand programmes, as just like everyone else I have an ARM v6 processor which isn't supported by adobe flash and iplayer, my scroll model / version that i am using is on my signature below.

Download Skyfire Browser 4.0.

Then go on the bbc iplayer website, select the on demand programme you want to watch and it will show the 'need to install flash player' as normal, then click on the video icon on the bottom left and it will say analysing, once done after a few seconds it will show a play symbol, it will then buffer and and enlarge to almost full screen, then push the play icon in middle of screen and Whola!!!!.

The only catch is you only get a 3 day trial of the flash video player, but when i went to purchase it only costs £1.79.

Let me know if you try and how you get on.

Good Luck.

My understanding on this is that Skyfire do the processing for you and send you the data in a format that can be displayed on your screen without flash. I believe this can cause some stutters as the Skyfire site has to repeatedly buffer your data. Is there a monthly subscription or a one -off payment for the service?
If it isn't broken then don't try to fix it!
