BBC iPlayer on the N7?

Does BBC iPlayer work okay on the N7?

If so, would that be via the Play Store App or through Chrome? (or other browser)?

Paul, what is the problem out of the box? is it Flash?

A pal of mine is getting a N7 and is unlikely to go down the rooting/rom route, so anyway of getting it to work for him on stock?

Ta.

Jr4 now online!

Out of the box - no flash, flash not visible in market, only preinstalled browser is Chrome.

He can manually install flash, another browser (Dolphin?) or the iPlayer app from APK and that'll probaby work...

I can confirm that side loading both flash and the iplayer apks works perfectly. The app behaves like the phone version (proper app) instead of dumping you out to the website.

Didn't work for me. Flash is working in Firefox but iPlayer just throws me to the browser & says my phone is not supported.

Which apk for iPlayer did you use?

Try the Auora build of firefox from their website, Iplayer works for me using that. Couldnt get it to work in the other browsers i tried or an iplayer apk i tried although maybe a different version of the iplayer apk might work, the version i tried just sent me to the web site and said my phone is not compatible.

I wasnt planning on rooting, but i think getting a more stable browser with flash plus a couple of other niggles mean i will do at some point.

Thanks - Aurora worked for me though it does seem to crash more than other browsers.

Spent 2 quid on myPlayerPro to stream free view channels and it works well with no flash for those who don't want to put it on. Not as good as iPlayer or 4od etc but gets you live TV if that's all you want.

Grab the APK from /data/app on your Android phone and install on the tablet. Ditto for the Flash player! :)

Is there a way of watching sideloaded BBC iplayer shows on the Nexus 7 without having to strip DRMs or convert the WMV into something else?

Thanks!

After changing my original Nexus 7, under warranty, I have resisted rooting this device for the meantime.

I have managed to sideload Flash and the iPlayer apk. As a secondary browser I am using Boat browser which supports flash along with the feature to always display Desktop sites within the settings.

I would have loved to install stock Google web browser but it seems root is needed for this.

BBC have released the BBC Media Player app, which saves time trying to get Flash working specifically for iPlayer >_>
