Why can't this just be integrated with the BBC News app? I click a video in that app, tells me to install this media player app. Okay cool, sure.. whatever. However then after going back and clicking on the video I wanted to watch, it loads this media player app and says that the content can't even be played. The error message was meaningless to me. If you have an app to do one function, you should probably have it do that one function.
As other reviewers have said, only works about half the time. No excuse when it's a companion app by the BBC to work in conjunction with other BBC apps to vote BBC content! Reliable access to video is a pretty basic expectation these days, even the need for a separate app for media is quite bizarre!
Have been greeted by "This content doesn't seem to be working. Please try again later." for such a long time, can't even remember the last time this application worked. Is there a point to this app?
This never works! Almost every time the BBC news app bounces out to this it says something went wrong and won't play the video. Very frustrating.
Hmmm... Eventhough my mobile now has the update of Nouget 7.0 I still can't download content on a Moto G4! What is the problem? We've complained about this for so long. Is anyone listening?
Videos hardly ever work on it, and the video playback should be built into the BBC news app, there's no excuses really. Avoid this app unless you like being annoyed or wasting time.
