Windows Phone 7 & BBC iplayer!
If like me you live in the UK and have missed some shows, you normally would just download BBC iplayer, or ITV Player or even 40d to be spoilt with choice, but hmm when you come to the Windows platform…. its just not out there!
But is it allways the “developers” fault, or the platform is not popular enough, well according to the BBC, iplayer cant run on Windows Phone as it does not support its streaming platforms!
Unfortunately, as the Windows Phone 7 doesn’t support HLS or Adobe Flash, the formats we use for streaming videos, we can’t make BBC iPlayer available on this phone at the moment.
Now you would hope that the Windows Development Team would enable this and get some of the most widely used apps on the Smart phone market to windows?
