How wonderful, the people at the beeb have finally got round to making their iplayer more accessible to non-Windows users.
Go to the iplayer home page and you will see an invitation (bottom right corner) to sign up to ‘labs’. I did and was surprised how easy it was. I can now download programmes to my Unbuntu netbook, my cool Samsung NC10.
I had complained to the BBC a while back as they kept advertising that programmes could be downloaded and watched later, without ever mentioning that it was limited to users of Microsoft Windows. I was not only horrified that they had given Microsoft a monopoly, but that they did not even come clean and admit it. The chap I spoke to agreed with me. Glad they have sorted it now.
Thanks to Matt for putting me onto it.
