    Ok, I realise it's probably something I'm doing wrong, but i can't get it to play anything at all.

    It loads the front screen of the programme I select fine, then when I press play, it goes through the 'checking availability on iplayer', then just says 'the selected programme is not availabvle yet, please try later'

    This happens if I'm using 3g, or at home on the Wifi.

    Any ideas guys?

    cheers.

    I've had the same on a few programs that are listed as still being available, but the majority seem ok.

    If you look in the Help menu for the beebplayer you will see that they make the point that not all listed programmes are available and some may take hours or even days to appear, depending upon the BBC.

    So I suspect this particular error message may be donw to the BBC. the Help also explains other possible problems that may occur.

    In my case I can play a programme for 3-5 min and after that it stops and if I try to resume or start again it does not play or play for few sec only. Apparently a known bug without any solution.
