    Hi

    I'm over in Canada and cannot download Beebplayer
    I was wondering if anyone had the .apk file for it?

    Any takers?

    I'm not sure it will even play if you get the app will it? I thought BBC only let people in the UK see their programs online. Thats not concrete though, just what I would expect.

    Does the beebplayer play radio as well? I can stream BBC radio through my PC (can't view the video though) in the US. I'm searching for a way to be able to stream Radio2 on my phone in the US. If anyone has any pointers, I'd be very grateful.

    So is Beebplayer only available to download on the UK market? I can't find it on the US market :(. Is there any other place you can download it from and install it like regular software (sorry for the newb questions - I'm new to Android from Windows Mobile).

    Yeah thats right, UK market only, I assume because it will only play content to those in the UK.

    Correct, if beebPlayer worked in other territories I'd have let other territories download it.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't as it uses the BBC's mobile 3G streams, which are UK only (even though the internet radio streams are worldwide.)

    Bump! Beebplayer has been removed from the market. Even though the developer may do anything he wants with it, I really love the app and want to continue using it for as long as Android supports it.

    Does anyone have the APK files so that I can install it manually?

    Thanks :)
