To use iPlayer from the BBC, you not only need an updated version of Flash player, but you also need to be in Great Britain. Plash should be mention you, as soon as it is needed, when it is outdated and offer you to download a new version.
Check if you can view video from Youtube. That site too needs flash player for most video's.

Testimonial: "Thanks for trying to help, but I'm in the uk and can view BBC iplayer and Youtube just fine - iplayer seemed to update flash just fine, but Demand5 (uk channel 5 catchup service) says I need to install Flash! Odd, I know."

    Oops, new to this site, think my 'Testimonial' should have been a comment: "Thanks for trying to help, but I'm in the uk and can view BBC iplayer and Youtube just fine - iplayer seemed to update flash just fine, but Demand5 (uk channel 5 catchup service) says I need to install Flash! Odd, I know."

    I always get a strange feeling, when all sites are working fine with Flash and one seems to have a problem. You could try to reinstall flash, although it could be it says you already have the latest version and won't let you. Last thing then is to remove flash via configuration delete program, and than install again.

How do i use the bbc i player app installed on the tv


There are several different versions of BBC iPlayer which manufacturers use in their devices. Between these versions, due to technical limitations, there can be some variations in features (subtitles, HD etc.). Each device will need to be connected to the internet to use BBC iPlayer.

Without knowing the make and model this is the info available.

How to Crack/Wipe DRM from Downloaded BBC iPlayer Programs


Quoted from: iPlayer ripper

BBC iPlayer - A service that lets you catch up with radio and television programs from the past week of BBC. BBC iPlayer use Microsoft's "Play for Sure" DRM system as copyright protection, thus the programs are downloaded, they will self destruct after 30 days because it is 'DRM License protected'. And once played you have up to seven days to finish watching the program. BBC Content will be automatically deleted from your computer once its expiry date has been reached. If you are outside the UK and connected to the internet you can only listen live and listen again to most of our radio programs.
BBC iPlayer Ripper - Daniusoft DRM Converter makes it easy to remove DRM protection from downloaded BBC iPlayer programs, such as DRM protected WMV video files, to make these programs DRM free and non seven or thirty days time limited so that we can save BBC contents permanently, Or you can Rip BBC iPlayer programs to any portable devices like iPad, iPod, PSP, Zen, Walkman, etc? Or even can we burn the files downloaded from iPlayer to DVD disc.
In the following passage I am going to show you how to use Daniusoft DRM Converter to remove DRM protection from BBC iPlayer programs step by step.
Step 1: Free download Daniusoft DRM Converter. Install and launch it as what you usually do with other application software.

Step 2: Click the "Add" button to import downloaded BBC iPlayer programs files, or directly drag and drop them into the main window.

Step 3: Then click the low-right "Setting" button, on the setting board there are many options to costomize the output audio & video properties. Choose an ideal output file size and quality to meet your players' requirement.

Step 4: After finishing the settings, backward to main interface, click "Start" to begin the conversion process. When conversion done, you go with DRM-free BBC iPlayer programs in various formats, or enjoy BBC iPlayer video music on any portable devices like iPad, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4, PSP, Zen, Walkman, etc?

Why is BBC iPlayer not working via Expat Shield


I dont have a proper solution ,, sorry ,,i have the same problem since May 19th. From one day to the next ,, suddenly the bbc iplayer does not recognise my expat shield UK address ,, it keeps telling me "programmmes are not available in your area. But when i check on other sites where i am , my IP address is UK, and i can connect to itv player no problem. I have tried numerous times since then, and still no connection, i think Hotspotshield has done this deliberately,to force people to pay for the Elite service.I wrote to them (anchorfree) about this problem, but the answer is always about Hotspotshield ,,, they fail to recognise my question is about Expat shield,, useless support service.
Anyway my small solution at the moment is Hola unblocker(mozilla FF add on),, on some days it sticks a bit but most days it works fine

Bbc iplayer wont work afaiter adobie air update .lost my downloads plus wont play any programes just blank screen


Hi Mark, I understand it's something to do with Air version 3.5
I think the interim workaround was to roll back to version 3.4! (if you can find it)
However, can I suggest 2 workarounds?
1) Download your programs for playing on Windows Media Player selecting it from the 'other download options'
I use this method myself, and it doesn't seem to be as hungry for system resources as does iplayer.
2) If you have your computer set up with 'system restore' enabled, then you can roll your system back to a date prior to when you did the Air update. Then, DON'T allow the Air installer to update again :-)
Best wishes!

Using Ex Pat Shield, BBC progs no longer start and a notice, 'Task failed at step 0: config was empty.' (Or 'Task queue failed ditto' Everything worked fine just days ago.


I have exactly the same problem, same error message. I first noticed the problem yesterday (September 11). Error message appears when trying to watch live TV through iPlayer. BBC News Channel works OK from BBC News website. Live sports broadcasts work OK through BBC Sport website. I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player but it made no difference.

User guide for Acer laptop model 5535


Hi, I may have a possible fix for this....
I got an Acer Aspire 5535 for christmas off my parents and on christmas day had a problem where the screen randomly goes off into sleep and cannot wake up unless restarting. This is very annoying!!!

After narrowing the odds down, i found that after watching vidoes on websites such as Youtube or BBC iPlayer or even iTunes videos my computer went into sleep.

The only way to solve this... according to Acer - a new video chip needs to be installed so send it off to Acer.
After this it works fine as i found out after watching Top Gear and the new series of Reggie Perrin on the BBC iPlayer.

I hope this helps you - i know how annoying this can be.
Thanks =]
