Methods I Adopted to Watch and Record BBC Iplayer

On my overseas visit with the intention to keep in touch with BBC, I found that the reason why BBC iplayer is funded by the UK TV license; if the TV license is not applied for and paid, then there is no right to watch BBC iplayer abroad.I also explored that what the BBC site does is checking the location of computer through its IP address. Every device connected to the Internet has an IP address given to it, this address has a physical location attached to it. So if the spectator is overseas the IP address discloses to all about it. All that is required is to fool the system, thinking as if the user is located in the UK; here the UK IP address is required.Let me also add that recording and capturing is not the same thing. With recording, what happens is that the software actually connects to the broadcasters system and then attempts to retrieve the recording from a specific location and proceed to download it to a folder on hard-drive. For example, watching a programme on BBC Iplayer whilst the software downloads it in the background. This recording is achieved by using something called RTMP protocol (Real Time Messaging Protocol) which is a specific method of communication to handle streaming content over the Internet (RTMP was developed by Adobe Systems – a leading player in the multimedia software business).

Is BBC Iplayer preferable or BBC Player?

As far as my knowledge is concerned, the BBC is an autonomous public service broadcaster that operates under a Royal Charter. Within the United Kingdom its work is funded principally by an annual television license fee, which is charged to all United Kingdom households, companies and organizations using any type of equipment to record and/or receive live television broadcasts; the level of the fee is set annually by the British Government and agreed by Parliament. Outside the UK, the BBC World Service has provided services by direct broadcasting and re-transmission contracts by sound radio since the inauguration of the BBC Empire Service, and more recently by television and online. Though sharing some of the facilities of the domestic services, particularly for news and current affairs output, the World Service has a separate Managing Director, and its operating costs have historically been funded mainly by direct grants from the UK government.As we all know, the original BBC iplayer service was launched undergoing a five month long trial of five thousand broadband users. The BBC iplayer came under criticism for the delay in launch, rebranding and cost to BBC license-fee payers, as no finished product had been released after four years of development. A new, improved BBC iplayer service then had another very limited user trial. Most radio programmes can be accessed globally, with the exception of a few programmes, mainly sports broadcasts that are affected by rights issues.

The new form of BBC Iplayer in Android phone

As far as my knowledge is concerned, with the latest version of Google’s Linux based Android operating system supporting Adobe’s Flash player, the scene was set for web based video streaming services such as Iplayer to appear on smartphones. Thankfully the technical team at the BBC has managed to work things out and now playback is nearly perfect. The audio quality and even the frame rate are quite impressive when watching close-ups of guitar solos. Clearly the 1GHz Snapdragon processor has little problem handling the extra load put on it by the Flash player. However, the inquirer can confirm that those wanting to watch the BBC Iplayer through their Nexus One can do so, if Android 2.2 and Flash player are installed.Let me further add that there’s no doubt that Adobe’s Flash software does use phone resources such as processor time and battery life, however it is equally as evident that the Snapdragon chip is more than up to the task of playing back video. There are a lot of different methods of recording BBC iPlayer apart from one. BBC iplayer is the first of the platforms developed to allow internet users to watch archived streaming BBC programmes. Channels 4 and 5 also have this service, but in a much more limited way, and some of their programmes cost money – BBC iPlayer is free.

Comparison between BBC Player and BBC Abroad

On my further research on the BBC iplayer, I found that the BBC has introduced Mac support for its streaming catch-up TV service in beta form. Mac users can visit the BBC iplayer site now to immediately begin streaming shows broadcast across the last seven days. It’s understood that the facility to download shows is available for Mac and Linux users. Radio BBC iPlayer, which offers a library of BBC Radio, has been integrated into BBC iplayer.But I would like to add to the hypothesis that there are ways around some of the restrictions – using Foxy proxy to make iPlayer think live in the UK, and having a UK iTunes account so as to access pod casts that way. But this is breaking the rules because the BBC abroad seems to treat everyone beyond the British Isles differently. There are other low cost services that offer BBC abroad. These low cost services give only 1 UK VPN connection that they oversell, you will find a lot of buffering and connection problems as many people are trying to use the same connection in peak times. Every account has free access to USA servers irrespective to unblock any USA restricted website such as Hulu TV, Fox, and NBC etc.I have now concluded that this is a much more expensive route, as payment is needed to make for the TV subscription as well; however the quality of picture is just amazing. For an expat living abroad and willing to watch BBC abroad online it really is the best option, there is no other way to watch BBC for instance.
