BBC iPlayer Linux screenshots

Filed under
Software

BBC iPlayer after a lot of complains, petitions, talks and discussions is finally available for GNU/Linux as beta. I took a look at what BBC has prepared and in general I have to say: good job!

Opposed to the alpha versions I’ve seen, the video quality is very good and the Flash player does not cause any problems under GNU/Linux (I tested it on the latest version of Adobe Flash on Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon running Firefox and GNOME).

The only thing that the Linux version does not support is the possibility to download the video. This is due to DRM technology used to prevent storing the files for more than 7 days.
