Absolute crap!! Does not work at all on my Galaxy S5. I have all the latest updates and yet it fails to play anything. Just end up with a the pink buffer/loading wheel and then it goes blank! Surely this should be a priority fix BBC!?!? Get your act together! I pay for a TV license and yet you can't fix a problem like this! Also why do you need to have 2 apps....bbc media player and bbc iplayer so that you can watch any content (or not watch in my case as it doesn't work)???? Get it sorted and quickly!!
Doesn't play Vids on News or Sport Works fine when you use Bbc Iplayer, but videos on the News and Sport app always freeze up and loop on a second on footage, although the audio continues. Very frustrating.
Won't work with my galaxy note 4 :( Always worked until now :/ I have seen the update? How long until it works again, missing out on Wimbledon!!!
Been this way for months Doesn't play video or audio on my samsung galaxy s5 running lollipop and you sacked Clarkson you wankers
A diabolical, non functional app DOES NOT WORK FOR NOTE 4 or my Samsung tab pro 10.1 . If you like a black screen, go for it. If you want to stream any content from the BBC then forget it. This app is a pathetic waste of space and needs to be urgently fixed. Frankly it shouldn't be allowed on Google Play given how it does not seem to work for many Android devices. And you have to wonder if the BBC cares as well...disgraceful that so many license fee paying android users are losing out so badly.
Farce continues This is a joke. So I miss being able to watch the WWC, and Wimbledon because this app is absolute drivel. Been ongoing for god knows how long, but doesn't seem to be an issue for the bbc. Had this been a private company, say Sky and their SkyPlayer app, which is excellent btw, they would have responded ASAP and fixed it. However since we HAVE to pay a licence fee, the beeb need not worry with chasing subscribers. Pathetic.
In this update:
- Fixed an issue where the video could be blurred or blank on some devices when the control bar was hidden
- Fixed an issue where a black bar could appear on HTC One devices during playback
- Other minor bug fixes and stability improvements
We're aware of an issue on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, where some users on Android Lollipop are unable to play video. We're sorry this is still happening, and are working with our technology partners to get this fixed as soon as we can.
