You can still use iplayer through the website with the desktop box ticked.

I'm trying to do that with chrome but it keeps directing me back to installing the BBC Media player?!

use this browser, it overlays stock with more options, including desktop mode: https://play.google....m93c2VycGx1cyJd

edit: just checked, and bbc iplayer works fine :D

Guys, what Adobe Flash version do you use? It's been modified to work with the OSD I think I read? Anyone tried it on the Razr I? (I am willing to, got hold of a Razr I today - am deciding whether to keep it or not!)

It's 11.1 from a virgin Xolo ICS install.

...which is the update.zip linked here I presume?

Edit: looks like I am barking up the wrong tree here aren't I, it's not going to be as simple as finding a modified apk file... In the update.zip I see a 9MB libflashplayer.so file in system\lib\plugins\com.adobe.flashplayer, which I have no idea what to do with. And a FlashPlayer.apk file which is only 80KB from system\app

We're not winning are we...

I hope the BBC do change their minds and make the iplayer compatible for us... Or Adobe...

I have xolo ics on mine and the app dont work due to the media player not installing.

However I just installed ics browser+ and set it as desktop in settings and the desktop version of iplayer works perfect on this browser. It says not compatible on stock browser and chrome says download flash when set to desktop view.

Thought this would help those wanting to use iplayer and thought you couldn't.

Thanks for the heads up. How's the video quality through the browser, any good?

No they Wont

Top 10 disappoinment of 2012 was intel phones and nfc...... read it in the mag

I would add Android updates and BBC iplayer to the list. Many big Android manufacturers promised better and faster updates for 2012 - and did anything change? No.

The iplayer through the browser works fine (desktop mode), I gave up on the app a while back.

I still cant get iplayer to work in the browser despite trying all the suggestions in this thread. It keeps coming up with the 'you need to install flash' message each time.

Is there anything else I can try?

Yes 11.1 is installed but strangely enough it was disabled for some reason. I enabled it and it's all working now, thanks.
