UK: Getting BBC iPlayer to work on Nexus 7
This is a blatant steal from XDA forums, but for those struggling to watch BBC on their N7, there is a really useful workaround. The official App is unavailable at the moment and the BBC team are looking at updating this ... but in the meantime:
1. install Firefox Beta from the Play Store.
2. install flash player from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1214700&d=1342976097
3. Go to the Iplayer website on firefox, and select 'desktop site' from the settings
4. Watch TV! You get the full desktop quality options etc. (HD v SD)
It's working brilliantly here. No stalling or crashing at all.
