Doesn't work Has never let me watch more than 10 seconds of content from the bbbcsport website before repeating the same frame over and over again whilst the sound continues. With the flash of green between the frames being repeated.
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......
Downright bad I've never written a negative app review before but this app is special. BBC news app forces you to play short clips in this app, while they could easily be played in the app itself. Then the player app has never played any of those clips successfully, and I've tried on three different Android devices. Surely the BBC can do better!
Clearly abandoned and unfunctional Plays for about 15 seconds at a time then just closes without even a crash report?
Working now Did a fresh reinstall of iplayer and media player, and they now appear to be working fine. Not sure what the difference is, but are working. For anyone who doesn't know yet, as Flash support for Android has ended, Iplayer needs BBC media player as a get round for this. So, if we want to watch, then we need both in tandem. It's a bit of a pain, but seems so far a reasonably good fix for the time being. Good luck, as it won't work for everyone.
RUBBISH! Downloaded after the bbc website sent me to the app store as i wanted bbc alba to watch the football in Scotland. Nothing. Just links to my radio app. Absolute rubbish. Do not download/install. Waste of time. Deleted the app
