      Re: i player

      Probably not the correct forum for this anymore but any suggestions would be appreciated. The download issue sorted itself out after a couple of hours, but having spent 1GB of my pecious 10GB "mid" limit I now find that the downloaded programmes will not play. When I click "Play" all I get is a blank "now playing" window. Not had any problems before.

      Re: i player

      I really have it up to here with iplayer, they have put so much DRM and other crud on it, I have to go to several places to install all sorts of stuff and I have given up.

      My mp4 player is advertised as "iPlayer compatable" yet I still haven't got it to work due to DRM issues even though it will play on the PC.

      No wonder people go and download stuff off dodgy sites it is a lot easier than having to do it legit.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!
