Come on BBC.... Come on BBC. You can do better than this. We don't need something that's flashy and has as many features as VLC, but at least something that can handle simple playback. It will just freeze on a frame and keep playing the audio, every minute or two. It's such a shame to have so much good content on the iplayer, and not to be able to watch it properly......
Can't turn it off Munched my battery and had to off/on the phone to get rid of it
Freezing is frustrating Close to a year and it still freezes more often than not. Patheric engineering. Bad engineers blame others. Good engineers take responsibility and fix problems. complaints and absolutely no action to fix it. Rarely plays 5 minute news summary without freezing multiple times. Each time requires a forced stop, clear data and restart. Unacceptable. On Galaxy Note 4.
It's alright I like it plays well on my hudl but sometimes when it loads it freezes for ages and doesn't let me go off the app. To make it work I have uninstall it and the install it again. Why does this keep on happening?
Failed 2015-07-21:BBC News video wanted this to play article. (Why not standard player?) I installed, it failed. I immediately uninstalled. Samsung Galaxy S4. Update:2015-10-28:Repeat of prior... So many(most?) of videos I watch via BBC News app will play in the app, only a few seem to want to fork from BBC News to this app, which has yet never worked for me. Why not just play in the BBC News app like all the other videos... Waste of time...
Working again for note 4 You need this app to watch video on BBC website. After a lengthy period of it not working at all it's back up and running again and seems to be ok so far.
In this update:
- We no longer require the Phone Calls permission
- Improved handling of cross-device pause and resume in BBC iPlayer
- Other bug fixes and stability improvements
