    IPlayer Live Streaming

    Hi, I have just taken delivery of my Prime and one of my main reasons for getting it was to stream live video from the BBC and elsewhere when I am away from home (but within the UK). I can access the IPlayer through the browser but can only see archived shows rather than any link to live streaming which is available on both my PC and my smart phone. This is very frustrating.

    Having looked around this site, the question does seem to have been asked before but without an answer so far. Has anybody got any ideas?

    I'm not convinced that this belongs in Apps. BBC live streaming is accessed through the BBC website. We already know that the IPlayer app doesn't work. Streaming works on every device I have tried except this one which is hugely annoying.

    I use Iplayer via the browsers ( I usually use the stock browser for this) make sure you tick request desktop site. I am using it in the US via Scotshost UK proxy. Love it!

    Is that for live streaming though or just archived shows? I am in the UK so there should not be any rights issues but no matter how many times I request the desktop site it automatically takes me to the mobile site for Iplayer. Whn you say "reqest desktop site", whee do I do that?

    As far as this not being in apps, I agree as you are not discussing an app, but a browser based service. I've moved it to General Discussions because iPlayer issues come up frequently here.

    Bottom line is this...

    1. Install Flash Player
    2. Install Opera Mobile - in its settings, advanced, set Adobe Flash to "enabled", set user agent to "desktop"
    3. Visit bbc.co.uk/iplayer & use the service.

    I just tried what I posted, above & watched live Wimbledon on my completely stock tf101, so it does work.
