Ah, sorry, I haven't posted many deals and forgot to select freebies.
Thanks for moving

It is pretty good on the iPad too both came out today

I guess not compatible on the san fran?

All the shows I want to view says please switch to wifi to watch this program.

What the point of this if you cannot watch over 3g?

Yeah, it's Wifi only I'm afraid and you can't download radio and TV shows like you could on Myplayer and other similar android apps (shame the BBC killed that app and other similar ones).

Not worth bothering with if you're on Android 2.2 already, just use the BBC website.

You need Android 2.2 to use it

I've got android 2.2 on my San Fran and it's not available on marketplace as far as I can see.

Does this work outside the UK? Anyone tried it?

Not really killed, the apps are still there but they are either not available from Market or available versions have iPlayer functionality removed. You can still easily get these apps if you Google for the name followed by "apk".

i ve had this for about 8 months,running on the g2.works really well got it from t:|pb. no one else with an android phone that i know could get it though, did they take it off or something?????

I've also got 2.2 on my San Fran and it won't install on mine either. I wonder if it's because it thinks my San Fran is running 2.1 because they all ship with 2.1 installed.

Dammit! My Milestone can only go up to 2.1.

It is more likely to be because the San Francisco hardware does not support Flash. This is a common misconception with the San Francisco - just because many people have upgraded to Android 2.2, thanks to the nice people at MoDaCo, they think they will automatically get Flash to work - I understand that this is never going to happen. (I have a San Francisco running the MoDaCo MCR 2.2 R11 ROM)

Thanks, been waiting for this works great on my Desire HD

Lack of 3G is a real shame. Been using the latest beebplayer.apk for ages. All functionality present and accounted for and easily Googled.

Won't work on my htc wildfire and its been upgraded to 2.2. I sure the wildfire supports Flash.:(

get a tv licence you cheapskate

bbc is one of the good things about being british

anyone know when this will be out on the iphone?

I still have BeebPlayer on Android 1.6 which works amazing, but for Android 2.2 users I guess this is good too.

Downloaded thanks

I have a HTC Hero, with a similar spec to the san fran, used to use MyPlayer until the BBC twisted the developers arm, then got frustrated that I wasn't using the 3 gig data allowance on my contract and found this link to the first version on MyPlayer that works fine!

Should work with all lower spec android handsets, you need to select "allow instilation of non-Market applications" in Settings>Applications, or install via a computer.

Thanks. Works fine on my SF

i jsut stick with beebplayer it can be easily googled as previsously mentioned. THE BBC IPLAYER APP IS RUBBISH, why you ask? you can only watch it over wifi, beebplayer is both 3g and wifi. secondly iplayer only works on 2.2 and on certain processsors and you need flash, beebplayer works on any android device regardless of having flash, ive used it on 2.1. The only advantage of iplayer over beebplayer or myplayer is the ability of watchin bbc1 and 2....

Just browse to the iplayer website instead of using the app. It runs fine, works on wifi and 3g, and you don't need a tv license for it.

Beebplayer is not available anymore. I was gonna try it then found … Beebplayer is not available anymore. I was gonna try it then found this.[url=http://davejohnston.posterous.com/?tag=beebplayer]http://davejohnston.posterous.com/?tag=beebplayer[/url]

no dice on my Wildfire either - MyPlayer it is!

Not the most practical solution but I have a mate in the office who has a Desire too.

Connected to each others Hotspot and appears to get the obvious wifi connection issue but effectively steaming over 3G.

I wonder if anyone has thought of building this into a Custom Software (_;) i.e. 3G appear as wifi connected.

As I said not really practical but can be done.

Beebplayer and Myplayer both work fine on my San Fran - just search for the apk and copy to phone and install. Simples!

bbc 1 and 2 doesnt work for me on beeb player.... i get the message sorry this video cant be played
