Not really interested in any kind of social networking crap they're attaching to it but so long as it still works fine on PS3 I will be happy

Just the social networking aspects (plus things like the customised homepage and favourites lists) - normal viewing won't require a login.

I hate social networking and I hate how iPlayer closed their API.That was the only thing of interest to me - pulling the video streams into another program but you can't do that any more.

You're dead to me, iPlayer!

I should also not that I think sticking i- in front of a name is dumb. just like in the 90's when it was e- everything.

Is there a higher quality stream than 368kbps? No matter what I do that is the maximum I get, which gives a highly compressed picture.

Loving it personally. Don't mind a bit of social integration and the new look is great! It's one thing I'm pleased with in regards to the TV license I pay. THe other channels players fail in comparison (Although, when Channel 4 and 5 started releasing there programs onto Youtube, that was good!).

@yakyb - Content providers pressured the Beeb into doing this. You remember them, right? The people who still bother to encrypt DVDs with an algorithm that's less protective than the paper bag the DVD came in?

@NuTech - What are you watching that on? Sounds like you're getting the iPhone stream.

Windows 7 Desktop PC with a 50mb net connection. Tried using Firefox, Chrome and IE. All receives the same poor quality stream.

Why does everything have to have social networking intergrated?

Hmm so I'm not the only one who dislikes social networking integrated into everything. Supposedly in Starcraft 2 you have to use Facebook to add friends in game!

Ugh. I dislike when companies and softwares add 'social networking' (or 'Web 2.0') just for the heck of it.

Just seems a bit pointless sometimes.

At least we hopefully won't need to register to view videos.

Change for the sake of it when it already works well enough as it is, if people like to use the SN stuff then fair play to them, but I'll stick to TV and Radio as designed.

I doubt that's true. How big is FB in Korea?

Nothing they can really do at the moment, outside of creating a dedicated iPhone app (which might violate their program licensing agreements).

And IIRC HTML5 video doesn't yet support any type of DRM or stream protection, so that's out of the question.

Am I forgetting any other technologies?
