    I'm running the latest version of froyo, but can't find iplayer in the market - is it still in closed beta?

    It's not an app. It's a web site.

    BBC iPlayer - Home

    Works on Orange 3G too. Vodafone block it, not the BBC.

    I've manually updated to froyo this morning, downloaded flash, gone straight to the Iplayer website and streamed top gear over 3g. Awesome picture quality.

    Ah I'll let you off, it's supposed to work over 3 and Voda, although it actually doesn't work over Voda.
