Nor on my Sensation
A couple of years ago I got myself a Shiny new HTC Magic. I discovered a neat app called BeebPlayer that allowed me to watch iPlayer on it. Great.
Then the BBC sent in the Lawyers and killed it.
Still, there was MyPlayer. Not as good as BeebPlayer, IMHO, but it got the job done. The BBC killed that, too.
The BBC then announced it was going to introduce its own iPlayer client. Then we found out that it would need. Android 2.2. My Magic was running 1.6, so no mobile iPlayer for this licence payer.
Then Vodafone upgraded my phone to 2.2. Finally I get iPlayer back? Errm, nope. the "official" iPlayer runs under Flash and Flash needs and ARMv7 processor and the Magic has an ARMv6 processor, so still no iPlayer.
I recently upgraded to a shiny new HTC Sensation. 1.2GHz dual core ARMv7 processor. Finally I get iPlayer back.
While I can, now, install it and run it, the sound is always so far out of sync with the picture that its unwatchable.
So, over two years after some bloke working on his own produced an iPlayer client that would work on *any* Android phone, play over 3G, play radio in the background and generally just *work*, the might of the BBC can do no better than this pile of bloated Flash shite that can't even play a radio stream unless the f***ing screen is on.
