How do I watch bbc iPlayer?



  • Hi Folks, I asked ages ago why I couldnt watch channel 4 4OD and was told it was due to DRM but I thought www.bbc.co.uk and the iplayer didnt use flash or DRM. Is there anyway to watch the news clips on bbc.co.uk and iPlayer using Vivaldi? Thanks Class--



  • No problem here. You just need the right Flash pluginin

    Opera, Chromium-based browsers - PPAPI



  • Ahh, I obviously had the wrong flash installed. I use Firefox as default and had just clicked download when I should have clicked "Need Flash Player for different computer?" and selected Opera and Chromium - PPAPI

    Thanks Pesala

  • Hi. It's true: Not all videos format runing.

    The FlashPlayer tests go well. But many videos cannot see.

    Give us a link with the correct plugin you say

    Thanks in advance.



  • Get the PPAPI plugins (Don’t install the PUPs)

  • Our general problems would infinitely be solved if everyone would just step away from Flash and onto better things - and one would think the BBC would be smarter than that. Sadly, I doubt that's going to happen any time soon. I had similar troubles when I switched to Vivaldi as I didn't have the PPAPI version installed - I'd let the version that came with my old Masters Collection go and strangely it's not as fantastic.

    I do sort of which that they'd make PPAPI more of an up front option as well, or at least more of a "Hey, if you're having trouble, you should select this instead", without people having to go to Google or a forum to find out.
