You're not wrong there. Just the 5 years of legal work alone paved the way for all these great VOD services we have today.
Also, allow me to lower the tone and be the first one on these forums to say the joke you've probably been hearing your entire life:
Paul, do you give Good Head?
Welcome onboard dude!
I to am a huge fan of the iPlayer and whilst I was a little unsure about the need for changes, these changes haven't killed off the idea of using the iPlayer.
I know people who are permenantly on social networking sites and will be thrilled at this addition to the iPlayer. Me, I'd rather watch in peace and relaxed without the disruptions.
Is it just me or does Paul's photo make him look like the offspring of Alex and Joe?
Oh, and welcome to bit-tech and Custom PC I guess. Ask Joe to show you that inside his slipper is the perfect indentation of his foot - it's thrilling!
iPlayer is one of the PCs killer Apps, sure it's convenient on a PS3 or STB but there's no HD content on PS3 and Virgin's iPlayer is clunky very clunky to use compared to either.
I'm sure there's a decent argument for using your Licence number for use of their HD content.
ITVPlayer, 4oD and Demand5 are still playing catch-up.
I tried the beta, but I couldn't find the most popular section on the front page so I didn't know wtf to watch, so Im back on the old site now :s
Don't be conned into having 'a ride' on Harry's beanbag.
I love iPlayer. Just wish they'd talk to Adobe and get Flash 10.1 hardware acceleration working with it again. I'm having to use a monster CPU in my media server to watch anything in HD since Ion doesn't take the load any more.
If the content on BBC would be available to view from my country, then I might find it a good thing too....
At least you don't have to cover costs as part of your TV Licence fee though....
Thanks NuTech, and yeah, I've heard one or two jokes like that before
This has been mentioned in the office. Alex is building a race of super soldier journalists, all fashioned in his image...or something like that.
That's the funny thing about it... I can watch it on Sat perfectly fine without paying the fees, just like the rest of the european television, still I'm getting blocked in the net.
Additionally, if I use a british proxy, then I can watch the BBC-stuff :facepalm:
Limitations to countries is the worst thing people came up with imho....
Think how tall that staff would be!
Meh, we have to pay our own licence fee (not too shabby) and DON'T get a killer feature like an IPlayer...
From Finland you need quite a big dish for sattelitebased-BBC, no? More than 60cm?
Last time I ask Alex for some tea then, he'll be spiking it with growth hormones... :S
Urgh, there is no call for it to be attached to social networking but at least you don't have to be I suppose. Can anybody give some justification as to why it is interesting to know what your friends are watching on iplayer?
So you know what they really like watching, not what they think they're supposed to say they like watching.
It's actually becoming quite a popular idea.
Boxee is doing it as well. It will show you what your friends have been watching and if there is a (legal) download/stream available, it will take you right to it.
For a HTPC, I think it's a really cool idea.
