    Go search for "my player" on the app market not sure how long its been out for but its not to bad, you can only watch tv shows but its a great way around not having flash just yet.

    Its a touch grainy on playback but its more than good enough to catch up on a missed show.

    Awesome will give it a go, there was another one called beeb player that they took off the market so I don't know how long this one will last up.

    Nice app but too grainy for the super high res screen of the X10...

    On a plus note Adobe have finally released Flash 10 for Android but only for 2.2 but its been rooted so we should be having it on our X10's soon..

    Proper iPlayer with the HD option should look awesome

    You do know there is a HQ setting for YouTube right. In 1.6 menu-more-watch in HQ, in 2.1 there is a watch in HQ always in the settings. Don't mean to sound like a douche as you probably already know this but alot of peeps don't so maybe this will help them.;)

    .... and have you managed to actually watch anything on your Xperia X10 from this site?

    All I get it huge url's which you can't copy and paste. And even if I could, I doubt the link would work as, if you go directly to the iplayer site, you get a message saying the phone isn't supported.
