    I don't know if many people know about this, but I have just started using a browser called Skyfire (available from market). It comes with a video converter which allows you to watch flash videos by converting them in realtime to a compatible format. So far it has worked well for me and I have been watching Dr Who episodes on BBCiplayer with no problems.

    I've tried it with BBC iPlayer as well, the videos played fine, but there were sometimes loading issues that caused the video to stop playing, but that was with version 3 of the app, it might have been fixed in version 4, which was released recently.

    BBC iPlayer works fine with V4 although the video option is now a paid for feature costing $2.99 unless you downloaded it shortly after it was released on the market.

    Yes it working better with BBCiplayer.Flash videos and compatible format converting in real time is excellent.
