The BFI need to decide if they are serious about streaming. They are charging rates comparable to pro services which work reliably, but failing to provide a service. This kludge is not the answer. I'm absolutely certain there will be many folk out there who, like me, would happily pay for a service which does what we have come to expect from the likes of Netflix or Amazon, reliable streaming, casting and so forth. When will it happen?
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.
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.
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.
Tried on a number of devices and all i ever get is media player error. Absolute rubbish. Most disappointing is that this is used by BFI for their streaming service. All those films I want to see but can't because of this useless app.
The app worked for watching online videos that required it, however it was totally pointless. The same websites that require have other videos available to watch directly in the browser. Basically forced to use the app, which worked, but should never be needed.
