as far as im concerned, BBC iPlayer works beautifully on my Vista 64bit, never crashed, never caused trouble, this is all i care.
this edited video just shows a Mac fanboy's view on the fact that iPlayer application is only supported on Windows, which is nothing wrong. but their website works on all OS with flash enabled browser.
the user interface is clear, easy to use and very simple. those are the key to wide-spreading an application. as am matter of fact, there IS a bandwidth warning on the iPlayer, when you exceed certain download limits.
also, it is not "DRM encumbered", without DRM it would be exactly like a turrent download, and it would be illegal.
Is this how you want the BBC to spend your licence fee?
YES, they've spent it very well and i am very happy for them to continue to develop such application.Edited by wuyanxu - 6/25/08 at 7:08am
