BBC launches

Iplayer on Linux?

Rather that write a huge long blog post about the BBC launches recently, I thought I'd keep it short and sweet. James Cridland beat me to the boat on both anyway.

The much imporved BBC Home beta is now publicly available. How out dated does the current one look next to the new one? And thankful we've broken out of that 800 wide frame which drove me insane. Also not to be out done, iPlayer now has flash streaming using the new h.264 flash ability. It does work on Mac and GNU/Linux using the Adobe Flash Player (aka not using Gnash yet). I did try and get XBMC to play back the flash stream but it failed. More investivgation soon
