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 .
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.
Audio?? Well, I suppose its ok ... that is if you wish see a good picture, but with no audio. Have checked all my settings, but still no audio. I had to download to watch a particular sports team. So, all I'm curious about at this point is if Hook reads these reviews at all, & do/will they address them.
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.
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.
