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?
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.
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.
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?
