Another BFI subscriber cancelling their subscription here. I did actually manage to get one single solitary video to play, so maybe a codec issue. Word to BFI - please, please, please drop Ooyala. It was probably the cheapest and quickest way to get your service up and running (or not in my case), but it is seriously letting your organisation down. You've a beyond wonderful catalogue to be proud of, with a means of delivery that is shameful.
No Chrome Cast Tbh what is wrong with you people. THE REVIEWS ARE MEANT TO BE READ BY THE PEOPLE WHO CREATED THE APP TO MAKE IT BETTER. I am not the only person that thinks this. Please, read this review, understand it, and try to fix it. If you can it's as simple as responding we are working on it.
Simply does not work. Signed up to BFI Player, which sadly forces you to use this disgrace of an app to watch their content. An error is thrown every time I try to play a video. Absolutely not fit for purpose and I will be cancelling my BFI subscription as a result.
WORKS THE WAY I NEED IT TO WORK, WATCH A SHOW I MISSED. NOT SPAM, I'M VERY REAL! There is email/web addresses at the bottom of this page, it has help. I read quite a few NEGATIVE reviews, it works GREAT for what I was told I needed for! And further down a review tells you how to get your video on Chrome. Yes there was a black screen as I opened it but I don't need to open or control anything. I just went back to the site that sent me here to do whatever I need to do! It's up to the site that sent you here if their video isn't playing correctly, don't you think?
Doesn't Work I'm trying to watch Taylor Swift's interview on it, and it won't even loaded. It's just a black screen when I go to the app. There's no options to work with or anything. It's ridiculous. Waste of time. I'd give it -1 stars if I could.
It's a disgrace that the BFI player + site takes you to Hook to play a video. I have a downloaded hook three times on a S 7 Android Galaxy Samsung. Still every time I go to play a video it comes up with error and nothing works. Because of this I am going to cancel my subscription to the BFI Plus. I hope both Hook and BFI read these reviews and respond. The BFI which is normally excellent should know there are better and more popular video player apps to link their site to .
